Chris Schembra, founder of OHenry Productions Producing Partner and 747 Supper Club, recently joined the philanthropic board of trustees at the Easter Seals Foundation, a nonprofit organization.
Schembra is a native from Hilton Head Island. He has produced several famous shows, including the five-time Emmy Award-winning show "The Little Flower," which starred Tony Lo Bianco.
Schembra also founded the 747 Club, which is a supper club that meets every week to connect people in their local communities.
“We are honored to have Chris join the Easter Seals Foundation board of trustees,” Easter Seals Foundation Board President James Williams Jr. said. “His creative expertise and diverse humanitarian experiences will be valuable assets for our organization as we leverage philanthropy to change the way the world views and defines disabilities.”
Schembra’s experience includes studying at Rollins College for international business. He also lived in Patagonia, Chile, while learning at the National Outdoor Leadership School.
In addition, Schembra actively participates in the New York executive board for Save a Child’s Heart, which is an international humanitarian organization.
“I am thrilled to join the Easter Seals Foundation board,” Schembra said. “Advocating for individuals and families with disabilities has been a long-time passion of mine. Easter Seals’ nearly century-long legacy reflects a heritage of excellence. I am grateful to lend my support for the organization.”
