Tucson HVAC Contractor Steps Up to the Plate for MS Cure Again in 2018

Tucson-based HVAC contractor D&H AC and HVAC manufacturer Daikin will donate close to $10,000 to the National MS Society for the 25th Annual Walk MS to take place in Tucson on 3/17/2018.

Tucson, United States - March 14, 2018 /PressCable/ —

Tucson, AZ – March 12, 2018 – While raising awareness for a cure for MS is the focus of the 25th Annual Walk MS organized in Tucson by the National MS Society, the donation platter stops again this year at the door of corporate donors. And just like last year, D&H Air Conditioning & Heating (www.dandhac.com) is stepping up to the plate for the cause.

For the Tucson-based HVAC contractor, the cause is not theoretical but personal: Jackie, the wife of a long-time employee, has been diagnosed with MS in 2009. Always the fighter, Jackie has been an active volunteer for the cause ever since she received news about her medical condition. But today, some 9 years into her ordeal, she is seeing her health decline, more rapidly than before.

While Jackie and her husband are looking at experimental treatments as possible alternatives to the predictable outcome of her illness, they both continue to volunteer for the National MS Society. And this year again, Randy knocked at the door of his employer on behalf of the Society.

In turn, the President of D&H AC called the Houston-based headquarters of HVAC system manufacturer Daikin. And just like in 2017, Daikin agreed to donate a complete air conditioning system to the winner of an auction organized by the National MS Society in the course of the 25th Annual Walk MS event. D&H AC will donate the value of the engineering and installation labor.

Brett Wright, President of D&H AC, stated: “Both Daikin and D&H AC hope their combined efforts will help Jackie and Randy raise close to $10,000 for the National MS Society this year. We are keenly aware that our effort is a drop in the bucket. But we also know that by joining other Tucson-based employers to set an example in the community, the research will continue to get funded and a cure will eventually be found.”

On March 17, the Daikin air conditioning system will go on the auction block. The highest bidder will receive a unit completely tailored by D&H AC for their home, and 100% of the auction proceeds will benefit the National MS Society. Just like last year, Jackie and her husband will make the 25th Annual Walk MS count to help those battling this illness. They both will be leading the ‘Jogging for Jackie’ team.

LONDON — Britain's information regulator says it is assessing evidence gathered from a raid on the office of data firm Cambridge Analytica, carried out as part of an investigation into alleged misuse of personal information by political campaigns and social media companies.

Organizers hope to draw half a million to gun control rally

Mar 24, 2018

WASHINGTON — Thousands are gathering in Washington Saturday for a protest that organizers claim will be a defining moment in the long-simmering national debate over gun-control legislation.

Mar 24, 2018

CHICAGO — Shabazz Muhammad and fellow reserves Brandon Jennings and Tony Snell took care of the scoring with Milwaukee star Giannis Antetokounmpo sidelined by a sprained right ankle. Muhammad scored 21 points and the Bucks overcame another sluggish start to beat the Chicago Bulls 118-105 on Friday night. "The start of the game was a little bit rough for us," interim coach Joe Prunty conceded. "But I loved what our bench did. They were impressive down the stretch. Good win." The lottery-bound Bulls led by as much as 32-20 in the first quarter before Muhammad, Jennings and Snell came up...

Wayne Huizenga, who built his fortune from trash, dies at 80

Mar 24, 2018

MIAMI — H. Wayne Huizenga, a college dropout who built a business empire that included Blockbuster Entertainment, AutoNation and three professional sports franchises, has died. He was 80. Huizenga (HY'-zing-ah) died Thursday night at his home, said Valerie Hinkell, a longtime assistant. The cause was cancer, said Bob Henninger, executive vice president of Huizenga Holdings.

He purchased independent sanitation engineering companies, and by the time he took the company public in 1972, he had completed the acquisition of 133 small-time haulers. By...

Bumgarner breaks hand when hit by line drive, needs surgery

Mar 24, 2018

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — For the second consecutive season, the San Francisco Giants will be without injured ace Madison Bumgarner for a while. Bumgarner broke a bone in his pitching hand Friday when it was hit by a line drive off the bat of Kansas City's Whit Merrifield during a spring training game. The Giants said X-rays showed the 28-year-old fractured the fifth metacarpal on the outside of his left hand. Bumgarner said the timeline for recovery is four to six weeks and he will have a pin inserted into his pinkie Saturday. "It's tough. But I can handle it," Bumgarner...
