ILC GIVES BACK TO BEHIND THE SCENES
On July 10th, 2012 at the Hilton Indian Lakes Resort, Intelligent Lighting Creations (ILC) hosted a charity golf event benefiting Behind the Scenes, an initiative of The ESTA Foundation. Over forty customers and clients of ILC came out to support the cause and mingle with other company representatives and industry professionals.
Behind the Scenes provides financial support to entertainment technology industry professionals when they are ill or injured. Individuals and organizations contribute money to the program, and Behind the Scenes provides grants for emergency situations. With this initiative, our industry can make sure our colleagues are cared for when tragedy strikes.
Intelligent Lighting Creations (ILC) provides stage lighting rentals for concerts, events, trade shows and corporate meetings throughout the country. Our team includes lighting designers and the best production lighting technicians in the industry so that we can deliver the best solution for every event.
In addition to ILC hosting this event, sponsors donated their part as well. Philips Strand sponsored the registration table, Philips Vari*Lite sponsored the beverage cart and Lex Products sponsored the reception. Three companies, Apollo Design, Martin Professional and Elation Professional funded the four hole competitions, which awarded four golfers $100 cash. ILC also provided incentives for the two-man scramble winners.
ILC doubled the end amount and presented Behind the Scenes $5,064.70. This contribution will help those in the entertainment technology industry immensely. Dave Saltiel, a member of The ESTA Foundation’s board of directors, was able to accept the check on behalf of the charity. He was extremely pleased with the efforts of ILC, the sponsors and all of the attendees.
Bob Moisan, VP of Sales and Marketing at ILC commented on the success and future plans of the Behind the Scenes Golf Outing, “ILC is very fortunate to have customers and vendors that were willing to support Behind the Scenes with us.
