Big Ass Fans® Donates Two Isis™ Fans to Deserving Extreme Makeover: Home Edition Family

Tuesday, October 20, 2009

LEXINGTON, KY — Big Ass Fans donated two 8-ft. Isis fans to ABC’s popular television show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition for tonight’s episode featuring the rebuilding of the Marshall family’s Lancaster, Texas home and horse barn.

Carlton and Susan Marshall are dedicated law enforcement officers who share a deep love of horses with their two children. While serving as a member of the Dallas police force, Carlton was wounded during a drug raid in 2007, confining him to a wheelchair.

The Marshall family now has two Isis fans in their new barn which provide comfort to their horses year-round. “We were honored to donate these fans to such a deserving family,” said Carey Smith, owner and president of Lexington, Ky. based Big Ass Fans.
