Julie Williams to Grace Clearwater Community Sailing Center's Winds of Change Event as Guest of Honor

United States, 27th Apr 2024, King NewsWire – The Clearwater Community Sailing Center (CCSC) is thrilled to announce Julie Williams, acclaimed singer-songwriter and a beacon of inspiration in Nashville's country music scene, as the Guest of Honor for the upcoming Winds of Change event on Saturday, April 27th. The event, known for championing inclusivity and community through sailing, will feature Williams not only in a celebratory capacity but also as an eager participant in a special sailing lesson with Mateo Rodriguez, esteemed FSU graduate and CCSC Coach, on Friday, April 26th.

Julie Williams, celebrated for her heartfelt and resonant music that addresses themes of self-love and acceptance, has rapidly ascended the ranks of Nashville's country music scene. As a CMT Next Women of Country artist, a member of the Black Opry Revue, and an ACM OnRamp artist, Williams has captivated audiences nationwide with her powerful storytelling and melodious artistry. Her work, including the poignant single "Southern Curls," has garnered attention from major outlets like Billboard, CMT, and PBS NewsHour, earning her a spot in Wide Open Country’s list of “10 Country Acts Poised for a Breakout Year in 2023.”

In anticipation of the event, Williams shared, “As a Bay area native, I am honored to be a part of the Winds of Change event and support an organization that empowers youth and champions inclusivity in our community. I look forward to not only sharing my songs but also learning the ropes of sailing myself!”

The Winds of Change event serves as CCSC's annual flagship fundraiser, dedicated to fostering a love for sailing among at-risk youth in the Clearwater area. By integrating sailing, art, and community inclusion, the event aims to create lasting impact and open new horizons for local youth.

"We are beyond excited to welcome Julie Williams as our Guest of Honor," said Elizabeth McConnell of CCSC. “Her compelling journey and the universal themes in her music resonate deeply with our mission to empower and uplift through the unique experience of sailing.”

The Clearwater Community Sailing Center invites all to join in this special occasion, which promises not only to showcase the transformative power of music and sailing but also to support the Center's ongoing efforts to provide accessible sailing opportunities to the community.

About 2024 Winds of Change 

The Winds of Change event is our annual fundraiser for Clearwater Community Sailing Center Saturday April 27th. This is an opportunity to connect Sailing, Art and Inclusion in our greater Clearwater community, via the Clearwater Community Sailing Center (CCSC) water footprint. The vision is to create ripples of change, by igniting the passion for sailing with at-risk local youth. The Winds of Change will scholarship several kids through summer camp at CCSC and programs throughout the year to get kids out on the water and enjoying the Tampa Bay Area at it’s best. Sailing teaches the fundamentals of stewardship for kids. On the first day of sailing kids learn how to rig a boat and set off for their first adventure. This Risk / Reward program can benefit At Risk Kids by giving them an outlet, responsibility, and the ability to set their own course and reach that destination. These skills can be utilized in all areas of a kid’s life. Offering these children an opportunity to experience the outdoors while learning a life skill on many levels.
