Fort Worth, TX – Rosco Laboratories and The ESTA Foundation are pleased to announce the sixth annual presentation by Rosco of the royalty check from the sales of Roscolux #359 Medium Violet to Behind the Scenes, the charity that assists entertainment technology professionals in need due to serious illness or injury.
Ed Donohue, president of Rosco - North America commented, “You have to have people you can count on, to know someone’s got your back. Behind the Scenes provides that support when it’s needed most – you guys are there for everyone. That’s not only admirable, it’s critical - and that’s why it’s so important to us that every year, we have your back. This year, Rosco is pleased to present you with the proceeds from Roscolux 359 Medium Violet, $2,227, for a total to-date of just over $15,000.”
Rick Rudolph, chair of the Behind the Scenes Committee, accepted the check from Donohue saying, "We are very grateful to Rosco for this ongoing gift. It allows someone purchasing something as basic to a production as a sheet of color to feel they are part of a community that won’t leave its colleagues without a safety net in times of crisis. Rosco was our first Pledge a Product partner and they have set an example that we encourage the rest of the industry to follow.”
