Fans remember Erik Estrada as one of TV’s biggest 1970s and ’80s heartthrobs, but today the father of three is the national spokesman for a group that aims to protect kids from Internet predators. The actor best known for his role as Ponch, a motorcycle policeman in the hit television series “CHiPS,” has teamed up with the Safe Surfin’ Foundation and is starring in a new movie that will be screened in Hesperia later this month with Estrada making a special live appearance.
Victor Valley News is proud to bring a screening of a family friendly film called FINDING FAITH on Monday, October 28, 2013. Victor Valley News will also be hosting the star of the film, Erik Estrada to the screening.
The film FINDING FAITH is a full-length narrative motion picture that tells the true story of how a family found ‘Faith’ in their battle to find and rescue their fourteen-year old daughter ‘Faith’ who accidentally falls victim to an online predator.
FINDING FAITH highlights the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force edge-of-your seat efforts to rescue children from predators, often right before these children come to great harm. Even the tightest families and most guarded parents often cannot stop predators who have perfected their evil trade.
The film is based entirely on true events and observations from experts. It will wake parents, educators and concerned citizens to how our children are being targeted.
The screening at Victor Valley Christian Church is part of a National Awareness Tour, Estrada and the film’s creator and Executive Director for the Safe Surfin’ Foundation are doing to bring consciousness to this issue.
