The Central Valley Justice Coalition is hosting its first Freedom Party, an event to raise money and awareness for human trafficking Saturday from 5:30 p.m. until 11 p.m., at Shep’s Club, located at 935 P Street in Fresno.

The event will feature live music as well as food and drinks, with the proceeds from the event going directly to Justice Coalition education and awareness programs.

“Some might wonder, with the current state of the world as it is, what is there to celebrate?” said Ryan Townsend, executive director of the nonprofit Central Valley Justice Coalition. “We celebrate because we believe in Freedom. We believe in hope. We celebrate because the future belongs to all of us.”

The event is in partnership with promotion group Love the Captive, Fresno Street Eats and Shep’s Club. Entertainment acts, the venue and all engineers and promoters will be donating their services to maximize the fundraising effort.

The event will feature music from Brian Cade, Daze Baby, Dakota Crossing, Whoisgene, Puppet and DJ Johnny[Q]Brown .

The event is open to the public, with doors opening at 5:30 and entertainment starting at 6:30. Tickets are available for $25 at the door or online, with VIP tickets available for $75 per person and $130 for two.
