Fun was also had.. Wednesday night our friends @ Selecon Lighting has a dinner @ The Grove, once the sun set there was a Toru followspot for us to play with.. As you can see Jonathan Resnick and and Peter Maurelli went crazy. (Thanks to Jenny Antill [firstname.lastname@example.org] for the pictures) A little bird told me there was an interesting call from the Houston Police. Transcripts of the conversation, however, are not available at this time.
There also was a considerable amount of $$ raised for the ESTA Foundation's Behind the Scenes initiative to provide financial support to entertainment technology industry professionals when they are ill or injured.. A raffle was held with 12 donated prizes, the Long Reach Long Riders sold kazoo's and t-shirts, and Rich Wolpert of Union Connector spent the 11 days prior to the show and rode 750 miles on a bicycle from Springfield, MO to Houston, TX to benefit Behind the Scenes. His efforts raised over $7000.
In total over $25,000 was raised.. Thank you to everyone for supporting such a great cause that helps those in our industry!
