Sapsis Rigging Issues BTS Challenge Grant

PLSN Staff • News • February 13, 2009

NEW YORK—Sapsis Rigging has issued a $2,500 challenge grant for the Behind the Scenes / Long Reach Long Riders raffle at USITT in Cincinnati. When the proceeds of the raffle reach $2,500, Sapsis rigging will match that amount. The grant provides the opportunity for donors to effectively double their contributions, all of which goes toward helping colleagues in a time of need. “While this economy many be taking its toll on many, it’s worse for those with the added burden of illness or injury,” said Bill Sapsis, president of Sapsis Rigging. “Now, more than ever, it’s imperative that we help make sure our fellow technicians and their families receive the assistance they need to make ends meet.”

Behind the Scenes has a limited number of challenge grants still available for $2,500.  The Challenge Grant Program gives companies or individuals the opportunity to show support for their peers in the industry while providing a unique opportunity to be recognized as a leading supporter of this worthy cause.

Behind the Scenes and the Long Reach Long Riders will be raffling off 12 prizes donated by industry members. Raffle tickets are $5 each, or five for $20, and will be sold at booth #1321 on the show floor.

Behind the Scenes is an initiative of The ESTA Foundation to provide industry members with financial support when they are seriously ill or injured.
