ORANGE COUNTY’S CELEBRITY TRIPLE-THREAT CHEF-MUSICIAN-ENTREPRENEUR STAN FRAZIER TO SERVE AS DIRECTOR OF MUSIC FOR “KEEP CALM AND BEAT H.E.A.T. ROCKING & RALLY”
SANTA ANA – The Orange County District Attorney announced that principal songwriter, drummer, producer and co-founder of the American rock band Sugar Ray turned celebrity chef and entrepreneur Stan Frazier has agreed to donate his time and talent by serving as the Director of Music for the Orange County District Attorney’s Office’s (OCDA) “Keep Calm and Beat H.E.A.T. Rocking & Rally” on Sept. 9, 2013, from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Twila Reid Park, 3100 West Orange Avenue, Anaheim.
The OCDA would like to thank the co-sponsors for this event: A 21 Campaign, Anaheim Councilwoman Kris Murray, the Association of Orange County Deputy Sheriffs (AOCDS), California Against Slavery, California Victim Compensation Program, The City of Anaheim, Community Service Programs Inc. and the Orange County Human Trafficking Task Force, Cottonwood Church, Diamond Bar Councilwoman Ling Ling Chang, Free-Them, iSanctuary, Jerry Zomorodian of All American Petroleum Corporation, The Joyful Child Foundation, Magnolia Baptist Church, Orange County Supervisors Shawn Nelson and Janet Nguyen, Police Departments in the Cities of Anaheim, Fullerton, and Santa Ana, Rancho Santa Margarita Councilman Steve Baric, Renew West Anaheim, Saving Innocence, Mike and Susan Schroeder, and State Board of Equalization Vice Chair Michelle Steel.
“As a father of an 8-year-old daughter, I am appalled that this type of abuse is happening in our backyard. I owe it to Anabelle to stop the exploitation of children and young women,” stated Frazier. “I am looking forward to joining law enforcement, community organizations, and elected officials to raise awareness of this problem that is causing a blight on our community.”
Twila Reid Park was chosen as the location because it is less than a mile from Beach Boulevard and Ball Road in Anaheim, an area known to law enforcement to be a high-prostitution area and frequently used by individuals who sexually exploit and traffic women and underage girls for financial gain.
The OCDA announced in April 2013 that it was forming the Human Exploitation and Trafficking (HEAT) Unit, which targets perpetrators who sexually exploit and traffic women and underage girls for financial gain, including pimps, panderers, and human traffickers. Commercial sex trafficking is the second most lucrative criminal enterprise behind narcotics trafficking. Often the perpetrators are gang members and/or career criminals.
