  NBA Stars Bring WoodStars Summer Carnival and Music Fest to Proviso East High School  
     

Forest Park, IL...Two of Proviso East's famed NBA Alumni are teaming up to present one of the largest summer carnivals and music festivals in Proviso area history. The event was originally scheduled to be held at Proviso West High School, but has since been relocated to the home school of both alums, Proviso East.

Beginning Thursday, July 28th, Michael Finley (NBA Veteran) and Shannon Brown (LA Lakers) will join forces to offer the Proviso community an outdoor family carnival and music concert designed to raise over $1 million dollars for renovations at Proviso East and Proviso West High Schools.

"It is the mission of these two alumni to commit to a fundraising goal of $1 million to begin the upgrades and renovations needed to assist in preserving the integrity of the school they represent," said WoodStars Events Director, Keoki Allen.

The event will take place on the grounds of Proviso East High School July 28-31st. The alumni are working to make this the most successful event in Proviso alumni fundraising history.

The WoodStars Summer Carnival and Music Festival will host some of the country's top performers including: Faith Evans, Carl Thomas, MC Lyte, Nelly, and Chicago's own Teresa Griffin. The event will also offer over 20 adult and children's rides, various games, and vendors. All proceeds will benefit the Shannon Brown and Michael Finley Foundation's renovation fund.

Thank you, Michael Finley and Shannon Brown! You are a vital part of Proviso Rising.
