  • Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, FL (1888PressRelease) January 25, 2019 - On January 19th, Mr. Christopher King, grandson of Blues legend BB King and human rights advocate, held the Gentlemen’s Ball Against Human Trafficking fundraiser in the Fort Harrison, Scientology’s international religious retreat. With over 400 people in attendance, this was the highest attended event Mr. King has done in the Fort Harrison.

    “We have lived through decades of Men and Women that have stood in the void, fighting our battles,” said Mr. King. “It’s time for us to fight our battles, it’s time for us to stand for what is right, it’s time for us to be a unit, a true community that seeks a change through not only peace but the proper perspective.”

    Mr. Christopher King was the main speaker and introduced the United for Human Rights program, one of the largest non-governmental human rights education initiatives, leading millions to discover their rights. Mr. King’s non-profit organization, the Gentlemen’s Course, uses the United for Human Rights program to educate the youth he delivers his course to.

    Mr. Dylan Pires, the Community Affairs Director for the Church of Scientology Flag Service Organization and the evening’s host, said, “Humanitarian and Scientology Founder, L. Ron Hubbard, said, ‘Human rights must be made a fact, not an idealistic dream.’”

    Guests danced the rest of the night with singer Joanne Andrews and the Church’s Flag Band.

    The Church of Scientology Flag Service Organization makes the Fort Harrison available for charity fundraisers and events. For more information on how to hold and event for your charitable organization, please call (727) 467-6860.
