Unfortunately, the State of Nevada has denied the charity's request to hold a raffle, and so the organization is hosting a boutique to make up for a potential loss of funds raised. Swag and gifts will be available for purchase, including the 2010 Holiday Cards, sold in packs of 10 and featuring artwork by some of the industry's top designers: David Gallo, Christine Jones, Jeremy Railton, and Andrew Hefter.
In addition, new 12-pack note cards will be offered featuring artwork by Hefter and Jones. Hefter's designs include four photographs shot on the set of An Evening with Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin onstage at Chicago's Cadillac Palace Theatre, consisting of 29 unique ghostlights. Jones' design features a gorgeous image of a ghostlight in the heart of Times Square.
The boutique will also offer brand new items featuring Hefters' ghostlight artwork such as t-shirts and a new illuminated lapel pin. Gobo ghostlight earrings make the perfect stocking stuffer. New polos and tanks, with an embroidered Behind the Scenes ghostlight, and Altman Rental's working ghostlight will also be available for order.
If you are unable to attend LDI, support Behind the Scenes by visiting the online boutique after the show.
All proceeds benefit The ESTA Foundation's Behind the Scenes program, which provides financial assistance to entertainment technology professionals who are seriously ill or injured.
