Crown Supply Co. of Providence, R.I., Elements at Home of Carle Place, N.Y. and Wabash Lighting of Fort Wayne, Ind. Were picked for top honors in the contest, held for a second year by the Cleveland, Ohio-based supplier.

“This is the second year in a row for our Think Pink Challenge,” said Rick Wiedemer, CEO of Hinkley Lighting. “We’re thrilled that 32 showrooms and more than 500 individuals participated this year, doubling our numbers from 2016.”

Hinkley asked its showroom customers to decorate their lighting stores in pink to promote breast cancer awareness throughout the month of October. To enter the contest, participants had to submit photos of their showrooms and staff displaying pink décor in creative ways. For every individual shown in the photo submissions, Hinkley donated five dollars to Susan G. Komen, resulting in a total of $2,780.

Officials say Crown Supply Co., Elements at Home and Wabash Lighting showcased the most creativity in weaving the color pink into their stores. They will each receive a special breakfast compliments of Hinkley.
