Rolex has made what it calls “a significant financial pledge” to the opening of new Fisher House facilities in Dallas and Los Angeles in 2008.
The Fisher House Foundation is dedicated to serving the families of U.S. service men and women who have been injured or wounded on duty and require hospital care. A Fisher House provides military and veteran families with a “home away from home” while visiting a family member in a nearby Veterans Adminstration Hospital. Since its inception in 1991, more than forty Fisher Houses have been opened and by the end of 2010 as many as 59 Fisher Houses may be opened.
Rolex has been a long-time supporter of the foundation. Contributions from Rolex have aided the opening of Fisher Houses in Ft. Campbell, Ky. and San Antonio, Texas, in recent years.
“We are extremely proud of our long association with the Fisher House Foundation. We admire their dedication to our greatest national treasure…our military service men and women and their loved ones,” said Allen Brill, president and chief executive officer of Rolex Watch USA.
