FSM Celebrates 10 Years
In celebration of its 10th anniversary, Free Spirit Media will be hosting a gala at the historic Café Brauer, in the Lincoln Park Zoo on June 9, 2011 from 6-9 p.m.
In Chicago’s urban schools, having arts education in high school is a luxury that many youth miss out on. Free Spirit Media recognized a special need for digital media arts education and since 2001, has been providing youth with incredible opportunities in production.
For Keisha McElroy, this opportunity with FSM changed the trajectory of her life. Keisha, now 22 years old, was enrolled in FSM’s HoopsHIGH program during high school. Her time with HoopsHIGH gave her the experience and drive she needed to enroll at the Illinois Center for Broadcast to become an on-air journalist. Keisha is graduating in May 2011.
FSM’s 10th Anniversary Gala is a time to celebrate ten years of transforming lives and powerful stories, like Keisha’s. The event will feature live music, raffle items, a silent auction, and amazing youth testimonials.
FSM is encouraging the public and press to join FSM friends, funders, and partners in an inspiring evening of creativity, elegance, and fun. All funds raised directly support programs that enrich the lives of Chicago teens. Help support FSM’s vibrant mission by visiting www.freespiritmedia.org/ten
