Concert 4 Courage this Saturday!

Concert 4 Courage will feature local bands The Reel, Method Echo, The Music Room and Crimson Sky. Other performances will include music by Megan and Ryan (Erin District), Cyndi Maslov, Ali K, Blue Onion Sextet, and Jaxx.

In addition, there will be BBQ, refreshments, and a bounce house for children.

The proceeds from ticket sales will go directly to Courage to Be You, Inc. (C2BU), a non-profit
organization that is building Courage Houses - homes for minors rescued out of sex trafficking.

Of the 200 girls rescued in the Sacramento area, nearly all of them have no home, no family, and no services to support them. These young female victims are either returned to group homes, from where they will run back into the arms of the men who use them for profit; or they are placed in Juvenile Hall, where they are safe, but incarcerated. Children are being sold for sex
in every city in every country around the world. The vision and passion of C2BU is to open Courage Houses so that recovered victims will have a safe place to belong and are able to begin the journey of restoration and transformation.
