MATT SORUM Teams With ALLIANCE HOLLYWOOD To Host Los Angeles Party

Alliance Hollywood — the non-profit corporation that utilizes the entertainment industry to lobby the government in order to promote and advance social issues and serves as the voice of entertainment on Capitol Hill — is set to launch a sister organization Freedom Children. The new non-profit is devoted to helping displaced and orphaned children from war-torn regions around the world, beginning this year with Iraq. The launch party, set to take place in Los Angeles on Sunday, April 26 at Coco De Ville lounge (755 N. La Cienega Blvd., Los Angeles), will be hosted by Matt Sorum (drummer for multi-platinum rock bands VELVET REVOLVER, GUNS N' ROSES and THE CULT) and feature a performance by jazz/soul singer-songwriter Adjoa Skinner.

"We're trying to help raise awareness and educate people on this crisis and another tragedy of war," says Matt Sorum, who became involved with the cause after Freedom Children's president Gianni Rossti asked for his help. Rossti — a former child of war who was born in Iraq and escaped at age 16 — now uses his personal experience to advocate for children of war-torn regions. Sorum explains: "Gianni Rossti asked for my help and I gladly accepted. This is a situation in war torn regions around the world. It gravely needs our attention. The innocent people are never to blame in these situations, especially the children. Many are left on their own with no parents or family from the horrific events that transpire through conflicts of war."

The Freedom Children launch party event is being sponsored by The One Group, Michael Greene Jewelers,, Roussos Construction, See It Simply, Inc., and Konst Law Offices.
