Adrianna Freeman to Perform at 4th Annual Celebration of Women and Girls, 9/27
Adrianna Freeman is standing up for women and girls who are down on their luck.
The country singer is among several performers scheduled to appear at the 4th Annual Celebration of Women and Girls to benefit the PACE Center for Girls of Leon County and the Oasis Center for Women & Girls on Friday, September 27.
"As a Tallahassee native, I am aware of how much the PACE Center does for girls who need a little extra guidance in their lives," Freeman said. "The Oasis Center also provides very worthwhile services. I am honored to be invited to perform at their event."
The PACE Center in Tallahassee is one of 18 schools for at-risk girls, operated throughout the state by the nonprofit organization. Founded in 1994, PACE Leon provides gender-responsive programming as an alternative to institutionalization or incarceration. It is recognized as a national model for reducing recidivism in the criminal justice system and improving academic success, employment and self-sufficiency among girls and young women. The Oasis Center, meanwhile, seeks to empower girls and women through a variety of social and educational programs including the Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) funded program Girls Circle, which provides education and prevention services to girls in more than 20 locations in Tallahassee, their renowned Girls Can Do Anything Summer Camp, and cutting-edge Women Can Run program.
Freeman was invited to appear, following the release of her latest single "Just A Girl" (AFM Entertainment, Inc.). The song, which deals with children growing up in troubled households, was recently adopted as the official theme song of The National Network for Youth in Washington, D.C., which supports homeless and runaway youth throughout the country. Recently, the song was featured on the nationally syndicated television program "The 700 Club."
