BEST Kids is excited to host our annual Art of the Matter event. This year's theme is "Through The Lens." We are excited to showcase our BEST Kids documentary, The ME in Mentoring, telling the lived stories of the youth we serve and the impact BEST Kids has on their lives. Also, join us in watching "Short Term 12," an award-winning movie that shares glimpses of common realities youth in foster care and the adults who work alongside them often experience. Make sure to join us after the show for our afterparty for drinks, hors d'oeuvres and desserts.
