ATLANTA, April 17 /Christian Newswire/ -- Cee Cee Michaela, better known to many as Yvonne--William's zany cop fiancée on the hit UPN comedy series, Girlfriends--and most recently-known for her role as Simone in the movie, Hair Show where she stars along with Mo'Nique and Vivica A. Fox, is on a mission to help improve the lives of young people with an emphasis on sexual abstinence. Michaela left Girlfriends unwilling to compromise to the changes in her role that were not befitting to her Christian worldview and in response to her call to evangelism.
"Pre-marital sex breaks you down even if you don't know it. It cheapens you. I always say, 'Never be a girlfriend who gives a man wife's privileges," says Cee Cee regarding the focus of The GodzGirl/GodzGuyNetwork™ 2007 Holywood Retreat to be held June 14-16, 2007 at Destiny World Church located at 7400 Factory Shoals Rd, Austell, GA 30168.
"We are thrilled about Atlanta being the official home for this third annual event where Hollywood meets Holywood," Cee Cee says. Approximately 800 youth are expected to attend this exciting three-day workshop of eye-opening, informational workshops including opportunities to interact with some of America's most prominent speakers, authors, performers, singers, and positive Hollywood celebrities while being able to showcase their own talents. "Lack of knowledge among teens and the fatherlessness of this nation are at an all time high! Someone has to make a difference and help to educate and inspire them to dream, live, grow and prosper without pre-marital sex, drugs, and alcohol!" Cee Cee expresses about her commitment to do her part.
