Feel Good Messenger Honored

The latest recipient of FAB's Accentuating The Positive In Hollywood Award is twenty-four-year-old Chad Celi, who, in the wake of the events of September 11th, felt inspired to reach out to others through a 14'X48' billboard that reads, Happy Holidays From Chad Celi. The message and Celi's warm smile is seen by 47,000 motorists per day who travel down Sunset Blvd., and is perched above the Saddle Ranch. It is the first billboard of its kind that has no sales promotion, no celebrity endorsement and no corporate sponsor. Realizing my crazy idea and trying to reach out to others is something I can be proud of for the rest of my life, says Celi.
