Community Outreach

Littman Brands’ Brighten the World initiative focuses on enriching individual lives around the globe by giving back to the community at large. While we at Corbett Lighting believe that success is a product of determination and vision, we also know it takes a measure of good fortune. That is why we are dedicated to using our success and resources to extend the benefits of good fortune to those in need. We embrace and commit to participation in philanthropic causes that bring comfort and care to vulnerable members of our society, across not only the United States, but also the world.

Ronald McDonald House

In conjunction with Littman Brands, Corbett Lighting proudly sponsored the renovation of Ronald McDonald House of Long Island (RMH-LI). Located in New Hyde Park on the campus of the Steven and Alexandra Cohen Children’s Medical Center of New York, the House accommodates families in a warm and supportive environment. For 28 years, RMH-LI has been a home-away-from-home for over 19,000 families in the United States and more than 80 countries around the world who are dealing with the pain of having a child undergoing medical treatment at nearby hospitals.

Corbett Lighting provided lighting fixtures for both Phase I and Phase II of this project, the latter of which added 24 bedrooms, four kitchens, five common areas, laundry rooms and the creation of a brand new fitness center and meditation room to the development. Corbett Lighting fulfilled this project alongside more than 45 of America’s leading interior designers.

Design on a Dime

Corbett Lighting recently gave back at ELLE Decor Housing Works’ annual Design on a Dime, a popular New York City design benefit held at the downtown Metropolitan Pavilion. The three-day event brought together more than 60 of the world’s top interior designers, architects and decorators to create one-of-a-kind vignettes from products donated by top design industry brands, which were then auctioned off for the charity Housing Works. Designers spent months conceptualizing their rooms and gathering donations to bring it all together in less than 24 hours for the event’s opening night.
Designer Miguel Lewis utilized a variety of Corbett designs, including La Scala, in his creative vignette, suspending fixtures of various sizes and styles at different heights to create an illuminating installation. Hundreds of VIPs, designers and tastemakers attended the opening night reception, which was followed by a shopping extravaganza to auction off the designer items. Proceeds from last year’s donated items raised over $1.3 million to support Housing Works, whose mission is to end the dual crises of homelessness and AIDS. This year, the money raised at Design on a Dime will benefit Housing Works’ newest supportive housing development, the Hull Street Residence in Brooklyn. This from-the-ground-up housing project will transform a vacant 6,000-square-foot lot into a beautiful and safe home for 26 single, formerly homeless adults living with HIV/AIDS.

Picnic By Design

Corbett Lighting proudly supported DIFFA (Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS) at their Picnic By Design in New York this summer. DIFFA’s humanitarian efforts include raising awareness and granting funds to organizations that provide treatment, direct care services, preventive education programs and advocacy for individuals impacted by HIV/AIDS.
Picnic By Design is DIFFA National’s summer celebration that highlights design, food and fun for a worthy cause. Picnic By Design brings together designers, manufacturers and artists whose work is enjoyed, celebrated and bid on by DIFFA supporters. Funds raised support their grant, which helps nonprofit organizations across the country combating HIV/AIDS. Guests are invited to sip cocktails and wine while savoring picnic fare from fabulous NYC restaurants and bidding on one-of-a-kind designer picnic baskets.
