This red carpet event is designed to bring the Milwaukee community together to celebrate the amazing work being done by women, young and seasoned, in the following categories: ARTS, ENTREPRENEURSHIP, IMAGE, COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT, PERSEVERANCE and SISTAHOOD. We will honor one youth and one adult in each category. The purpose is to bridge the gap between youth and adult trailblazers and to inspire others as the honorees share their journey of stage. This is a red carpet event that provides an experience that many in our community, especially our youth, haven’t had.
Do you know someone who deserves to be recognized for the tireless work they do in the community (COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT)? Maybe a young lady who is using her gift of dance, drawing, acting, etc. to make her mark in Milwaukee (ART) ? Have you met someone who shared their story of overcoming the many obstacles they faced and turned tragedy into triumph (PERSEVERANCE) ? These are a few examples of our former honorees. Our 2019 F.I.R.E. Awards will be held June 30th, 2019 at Renaissance Place, Milwaukee.
There are many ways to support this community event.
On April 3rd, Local Celebrities, who are novice poets, competed in their very first POETRY SLAM!! They were paired with Milwaukee Veteran poets to get slam ready! This was the first of a few fundraisers through mid-June and 100% of the proceeds go to the 4th Annual F.I.R.E. Awards.
"To say the least...it's LIBERATING. It was a way to make an abstract painting with words. You'll laugh, you'll cry, but most of all...you'll heal AND heal others" ~Adi Armour, 2018 1st place
