Trane Honors New Orleans Builder as Partner of the Year

Hyman L. Bartolo Contractors provides outstanding support for St. Jude Dream Home® Giveaway

New Orleans, Sept 26, 2016 – Trane, a leading global provider of indoor comfort solutions and services and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, recently recognized Hyman L. Bartolo Jr. Contractors, Inc., with the Partner of the Year award for its outstanding support of the St. Jude Dream Home® Giveaway in New Orleans.

The Trane Partner of the Year award recognizes a national vendor partner that best exemplifies the values of the Trane brand. This year, that partner also helped to further the mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®. Trane presented the award to Bartolo at a ceremony in Memphis, Tennessee during the annual St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway Builder Summit in August. Bartolo is located in metropolitan New Orleans in Harvey, Louisiana.

“Bartolo’s partnership with the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway program opened new opportunities for both the New Orleans community and the other contractors with whom they collaborated to complete the project,” said Mark Hall, builder and retail leader for Trane.

“The Bartolo team shared their passion for the cause with others, pulling their partners and the community together to support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and its lifesaving mission.”

The Bartolo team included many other local suppliers including mechanical contractor National Air and HVAC distributor Butcher Distributors, LLC, both of New Orleans.

St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Each year the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway program raises money by selling tickets to win newly-constructed homes in more than 30 markets around the country, as well as other prizes.

The single largest fundraiser for St. Jude nationwide, the program has raised $347 million to help the hospital continue its pioneering research to find cures. The money also helps ensure families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food. St. Jude believes all a family should have to worry about is helping their child live.
