NEW YORK, NY-The ESTA Foundation announced a major challenge, issued by Electronic Theatre Controls to the entertainment technology industry to step up to the plate at LDI for Behind the Scenes.
In announcing the ETC $50,000 Challenge Grant, CEO Fred Foster said, Our industry runs on the flexibility, skills and artistry of people who dedicate themselves to creating the magic of the theatre. Sadly, this means that many times an illness or crisis can catch one of us without the support of full benefits and insurance. The ESTA Foundations Behind the Scenes program provides a perfect way for us, as an industry, to provide a much needed backstop to this shortfall.
"ETC is proud to follow the path of other individual and corporate donors to support the Behind the Scenes effort. We hope that our donation will spur others to support this cause. If you havent contributed to Behind the Scenes, please take the challenge to do so now.
