WICHITA, Kan. – Ronald McDonald House Charities in Wichita helps families of sick children. To show its support for RMHC, the Luminous team designed, built and donated marquee letters to add a touch of glamour to RMHC events. The letters debuted Nov. 11 at The Jingle, the annual holiday cocktail party and silent auction produced by RMHC and supported by Wichita area companies.
Amy Forbes, development manager for RMHC, worked with Luminous to create 42″ tall metal letters illuminated by marquee-style LED bulbs. The Luminous team designed and built the letters with extra care knowing that this special project was for an important cause.
“The marquee letters that Luminous Neon created for The Jingle were stunning,” said Forbes. “The letters set the tone for the event and were all the rave! Our guests loved taking pictures in front of them and spoke highly of them throughout the evening. Luminous Neon demonstrated a high level of customer service and genuine generosity in making these fantastic letters!”
More than 300 attendees participated in The Jingle and helped RMHC Wichita raise $69,000. To learn more about RMHC Wichita and how you can help support the organization’s efforts to help the families of sick children, visit rmhcwichita.org.
