Rosco Laboratories and The ESTA Foundation are pleased to announce the fifth annual presentation by Rosco of the royalty check from the sales of Roscolux #359 Medium Violet to Behind the Scenes, the charity that assistants entertainment technology professionals in need due to serious illness or injury.
Mark Engle, President of Rosco, stated, "Rosco is proud to be part of such a collaborative, supportive community. Behind the Scenes, the Hemsley Lighting Program and Light Relief all provide opportunities for Rosco to give back to the people that make our industry great. Today we are pleased to support the wonderful efforts of The ESTA Foundation's Behind the Scenes program with our contribution of $2,540 - the proceeds from Roscolux 359 Medium Violet. This brings our total contribution to date to $12,731. We look forward to growing this amount for years to come and thank all of the designers who use Roscolux 359 and thereby contribute with us. Thank you all."
Rick Rudolph, the Chair of the Behind the Scenes Committee and a member of The ESTA Foundation Board of Directors, accepted the check from Mark and commented, "The best programs are the ones that keep on giving. Rosco's ongoing commitment to the charity was part of the inspiration to create our program Pledge a Product to Behind the Scenes. Employees and customers of companies who contribute to the program know that when they help, we can help an entertainment technology colleague who is ill or injured. We are very grateful to Rosco for this wonderful gift."
The ESTA Foundation's Behind the Scenes program provides entertainment technology industry members who are ill or injured with grants that may be used for basic living and medical expenses.
