ANNOUNCEMENTS

Our Company was honored and awarded The Spirit of Texas Award for small business for work performed after Hurricane Ike. These awards were given by area chambers of commerce and underwritten by the Governorís Office on Economic Development. The award was received because of the work our company performed following Hurricane Ike. We helped restore power to the Jefferson County Courthouse and Ford Park which was a crucial staging area for federal, state and local responders.

Bridgefield Electrical Services, Inc. is proud to announce that we sponsored the Red Cross Golf tournament that was held at Sunset Country Club in Orange.

Bridgefield Electrical Services will participate in the Energy 4A Cure Golf Tournament. The 3rd Annual "Energy 4 A Cure" golf tournament is scheduled for Saturday, October 16, 2010 at the Wedgewood Golf Course in Conroe, Texas. If you or someone you know is interested in playing in this golf tournament and supporting efforts to raise funds to find a cure for RVCL, your support would be truly appreciated.

Reason for the Golf Charity: There is a disease called Autosomal Dominant-Retinal Vasculopathy with Cerebral Leukodystrophy - AD-RVCL - formerly known as Cerebroretinal Vasculopathy (CRV). It is an inherited disease. The symptoms usually begin in the 4th decade of life. This disease process affects the small blood vessels, particularly those supplying the retina, as well as other parts of the brain. Over a five to ten year period, there is a progressive loss of visual acuity and multiple small brain infarcts leading to neurologic deficits and eventually death. There is as yet no treatment or cure.

Dr. Atkinson and his group at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Mo. have been working for several decades to increase their understanding of this disease. Through collaborations with physicians/scientists at the University of California at Los Angeles and Leiden University Medical Center in the Netherlands, ten families across the world have been identified with this disease. The condition was often misdiagnosed as a brain tumor, stroke, or multiple sclerosis. For the latest news concerning research status see website: www.RVCLresearch.org
