FTE Agents to Host Fundraiser to Aid Human Trafficking Survivors

October 6, 2011

            First Team Estates® agents Liz Bates and Tiffany Jones will host “Party with a Purpose” to support victims of international sex trafficking on Friday, October 14 in Laguna Beach.  The event is being conducted in partnership with Finding Freedom International, a Costa Mesa-based organization that provides funding, education and services for children and young women rescued from sex slavery and their caregivers in safe houses around the world.

            “An estimated 1.2 million children are trafficked each year, and it happens right here in Southern California as well as worldwide,” said Liz Bates.  “We are pleased to be joining forces with Finding Freedom International to raise local awareness of this tragic issue and to support the organization in its efforts to provide victims with the resources they need to regain their freedom and lead safe, healthy and productive lives.”

            The event will take place on Friday, October 14 from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. at the Neighborhood Congregational Church, 340 St. Ann’s, Laguna Beach.  The evening will feature gourmet food, live music, dancing, a silent auction and raffles.  Proceeds from “Party with a Purpose” will support programs in Finding Freedom International’s partnered safe houses in Bangkok, Costa Rica and Mexico City.

            To attend this event or for information about corporate sponsorship, contact Liz Bates at 949-689-9258 or Liz@GnomeApprovedHome.com
