FSW’s 3rd annual “Behind the Scenes” will once again offer guests unique insights into the life of a television journalist and news anchor.
Featuring a new intimate setting at one of America’s oldest country clubs, this year’s event will be a more personal experience from start to finish. The evening will begin at 6:00 pm with a cocktail hour and an opportunity to meet and talk informally with Josh Elliott, the Emmy Award winning anchor from ABC’s Good Morning America and moderator Bob Ley, one of ESPN's leading sports commentators and host of Outside the Lines. After cocktails guests will sit down to a delicious three course dinner with wine.
The night’s activities will culminate in an interactive, audience-driven Q & A conversation with Josh and Bob over coffee and dessert. You'll have the opportunity to hear two of America's most successful TV media stars share first-hand accounts of their personal and business success in bringing ESPN from an idea to a global brand and facilitating GMA's leap to the top of morning TV rankings.
When & Where
FSW is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that works with thousands of individuals, youth and families in the greater Bridgeport area and southern Fairfield County each year to help them build brighter futures. Most live at or below the poverty line and are challenged by a range of complex social, economic and health issues.
Our goal is to move them from crisis to stability, and then to greater levels of self-sufficiency. To achieve these goals, we assess the varied needs of each client and develop an individualized plan of support that draws upon FSW’s comprehensive services to strengthen their personal capabilities.
FSW delivers services to clients through five multifaceted programs – Behavioral Health, Financial Education and Family Assets, Literacy and Work Skills, Youth Services, and Social Enterprise. Last year FSW served over 12,000 people, providing them with the hope and opportunities they needed to build brighter, more secure futures.
