Upon presenting their first check for $1,000 Howard Werner, Partner and Principal, stated, “As people that have worked in the entertainment industry for our entire careers the people of Lightswitch have had our share of personal setbacks.  We fully support those in our industry that are in need and are very happy to be a part of Behind the Scenes and the effort to help our brothers and sisters in their time of need.”

“We are thrilled to welcome Lightswitch as a Pledge-a-Service Partner,” commented Rick Rudolph, the Chair of Behind the Scenes. “Having a company of their stature and vision participate in the program is extremely important to the charity both in spreading the word to those in need that help is available and in encouraging others in the design community to join them in supporting the work of Behind the Scenes.”
