On February 13, 2016 ForKids held its 5th Annual Story Slam, a ForKids fundraiser fashioned after NPR’s “The Moth Hour”. Story Slam featured twelve carefully selected individuals: Jesse Wareing, Vickie Bright, Mike Easmeil, Becky Peterson, Lee & Harry Cross, Ronald Young, Tenacious Vee, WooWoo, Esmere Litz, Robert Ciara, and Ayden “Absolut” Petrone who all had incredible stories to share about who their heroes were. After the event, videos of each slammer were posted online and the community had two weeks to vote for their favorite “Slammer”.
1st Place: Jesse Wareing
2nd Place: Vickie Bright
3rd Place: Mike Easmeil
Thanks to the community we raised over $36,000 to help break the cycle of homelessness and poverty in Hampton Roads!
