Leah Hoskins, F.I.L.M. Project Founder, Headed to Jail?

Depending heavily on support from the photographic community, Leah Hoskins, founder of F.I.L.M. (Family Images for Lasting Memories), believes in being directly involved in everything this special non-profit does, including fund-raising. She's headed to jail on June 20 with bail set at $25,000 in F.I.L.M.'s annual fund-raiser. This unique organization provides free family portraits for Cancer patients and their families. Their focus is to help capture the most special of memories for these patients and others with life-limiting illnesses, creating artwork and moments to remember family loved ones forever.

Marion, IN (PRWEB) June 19, 2012

On June 20th volunteers for The F.I.L.M. Project will be arrested by off duty officers and locked up and held behind bars until $25,000 in bail has been posted. Every dollar of the bail raised will go towards supporting the organization.

Family Images for Lasting Memories (F.I.L.M.) donates professional family portraits to cancer patients through a network of national volunteers nationwide. They're professional photographers who believe by sharing their gifts of portraiture they can inspire healing and create very special lasting memories for the families during their most fragile times.

"There are lots of creative ways to raise funds for a non-profit like ours, but "Jail and Bail" has been one of our most fun and seems to really get everybody involved! We're counting on our 600 members to come through and make sure I don't grow too old waiting for a release date!" commented Hoskins, who's getting ready for a hopefully short stay in the county jail!

And like most great fundraisers, F.I.L.M. has secured some outstanding prizes for photographers willing to donate to this year's Jail and Bail including a full scholarship to Skip's Summer School, the premiere educational event in professional photography, a three download video set from creativeLIVE, the leading online educational workshop series and a one year membership to SmugMugPro with a website customization.
