Last year, LiteGear designated their LiteMat+ fixture to participate in the Behind the Scenes Pledge-a-Product Program which resulted in a generous donation of $7500. This year, owners Al DeMayo and Mike Bauman decided to take their support to the next level and designated sales of all LiteMat fixtures to benefit the charity. Recently, at their booth, they presented a check for $15,000 to members of the Behind the Scenes Board of Directors, representing an incredible commitment by the company, its employees and its customers to care for their colleagues who are seriously ill or injured.

Upon presenting the check, LiteGear CEO, Al DeMayo, stated, “With decades of experience working in the business, my partner Mike and I have worked with lots of great filmmakers. We are happy to know the “Behind the Scenes” charity is behind-the-technicians should they need it.”
Lori Rubinstein, Executive Director of Behind the Scenes, commented, “LiteGear and its staff have wholeheartedly embraced Behind the Scenes. Their generous donations will make an enormous difference in our ability to provide assistance to those who come to us in need, and they are playing an important role in helping to spread the word about the charity. Every shipment of LiteMat fixtures includes a letter letting the customer know the impact their purchase has just had. LiteGear has become a wonderful partner in helping us to fulfill our mission.”
The Behind the Scenes charity provides entertainment technology professionals who are seriously ill or injured with grants that may be used for basic living and medical expenses.
