Rosco Laboratories and The ESTA Foundation announce the presentation by Mark Engel, President of Rosco, of a check for the first annual royalty payment to Behind the Scenes from sales of the color Roscolux 359 Medium Violet. Engel presented the check for $2,876 in front of a large gathering on the show floor at USITT in Cincinnati just prior to the annual Behind the Scenes / Long Reach Long Rider raffle.

"These challenging economic times require both imaginative solutions --- and compassion for those in need,” Engel said upon presenting the check. “ That's one of the reasons Rosco is so pleased to be involved in The ESTA Foundation's Behind The Scenes program. We contribute a part of the proceeds from sales of one of the most popular colors in Roscolux, 359 Medium Violet, to Behind The Scenes. More and more people throughout the industries we serve are choosing this color both for moonlight and many other effects. As they do, our contribution to this immensely worthy cause grows."

Tobin Neis, a longtime member of the Behind the Scenes Committee and a new member of The ESTA Foundation Board of Directors, accepted the check from Engel and commented, "On behalf of the ESTA Foundation's Board of Directors, we thank all those that purchased Roscolux 359 Medium Violet in the last year and especially Rosco, who is generously supporting Behind the Scenes on an ongoing basis with this program.”
