RSM sponsors new motion picture “A Chance in the World”
IN-PERSON EVENT |
RSM is a proud sponsor of the new movie “A Chance in the World.” Based on the acclaimed novel by Steve Pemberton, “A Chance in the World” gives firsthand insight into the life that many United States foster children face. From his own experiences, Steve raises awareness for children at risk of getting lost in the foster and adoption systems, and shows that you can set your own path, no matter the circumstance.
Taken from his mother at age three, Steve Pemberton (formerly Steve Klakowicz) lives a terrifying existence. Caught in the clutches of a cruel foster family and subjected to ongoing abuse, Steve finds his only refuge in a box of books given to him by a kind stranger. In these books, he discovers new worlds, and begins to hope that one day he might have a different life.
Following the feature content, Steve Pemberton and other adoption advocates will host a live simulcast panel discussion broadcast from the Paley Center in New York City.
Participate in a book drive: To honor the role that books played in Steve's life, and the difference they can make in the life of a foster child, there will be an opportunity to donate books at Regal Cinemas theater locations.
"I am pleased to partner with RSM and other outstanding companies and theaters across the country to bring ‘A Chance in the World’ to thousands of foster children, their benefactors, supporting nonprofit agencies and others focused on providing stable environments for youth,” said Pemberton. “I hope that by sharing my personal story we, as a nation are able to create a movement that will result in all of our nation’s children, regardless of their backgrounds, reaching personal and professional success, and finding their own chance in the world. It’s great to partner with organizations such as RSM that are focused, not on the circumstances of our communities, but the possibilities. " - Steve Pemberton
