Haberberger familyAssistance League of St. Louis President Dawn Thomas today announced that the Haberberger family has donated $10,000 to the organization.

“Dan was looking for a non-profit to support,” said Thomas. “Every year Dan and his wife, Lusnail, and their two young sons, research a local charity, visit the charity, and if impressed, write a generous check.” This year’s search of local non-profit websites led the Haberbergers, of Kirkwood, MO, to contact Assistance League of St. Louis.

“I was impressed with the impact Assistance League makes on the St. Louis community,” said Mr. Haberberger, who in April with his wife Lusnail and their two sons toured Assistance League’s Ellisville headquarters. Following the tour, they wrote a check for $10,000 to support the organization.

The couple explained that this year has been a good one for Luzco Technologies, LLC, an electrical engineering consulting firm Lusnail founded.

“St. Louis has been good to our family, and we want our sons to experience first-hand the importance of giving back to the community where they live,” said Lusnail Haberberger, an experienced, highly skilled project manager. Dan Haberberger is a scientist specializing in the design and analysis of high-powered lasers.

“We are honored that this wonderful family chose to help fund our many programs that benefit the region’s children. The gift will help us advance the critical work of our all-volunteer organization,” said Thomas.
