The ‘Free Love Lounge’ fundraiser held at the XBIZ Retail Show drew industry luminaries and raised funds for Free Speech Coalition.
“We would like to thank all our sponsors, including XBIZ for providing the venue and ElDorado Trading, Co. for generously donating raffle items to the event,” FSC Membership Director Joanne Cachapero said. “Also, we very much appreciate the participation of Wicked Pictures, Adam & Eve, Good Vibrations and the Screaming O for their contributions and for making the party a great success.”
The highlight of the evening was the appearance of Wicked contract performers Stormy Daniels, Jessica Drake and Kaylani Lei, followed by two exciting raffles. Adult director and DJ Jack Napier provided a sophisticated, relaxing musical ambiance to the event.
Newly appointed FSC board member and owner of ElDorado Trading Co. Larry Garland hosted the first raffle; excited party guests anxiously waited to see who would win prizes including a Hitachi magic Wand, a Fleshlight and a portable stripper pole.
The second raffle was for a new iPad, and drew much interest from the crowd. The lucky winner of the iPad was Sportsheets’ Todd Carter.
Other industry personalities that attended included Adam & Eve’s Bob Christian and Bruce Whitney, Evil Angel’s Christian Mann, Good Vibrations’ Joel Kaminsky, GVA-TWN’s Rondee Kamins, Wicked Pictures’ Heth Mares, East Coast News/IVD’s Frank Koretsky, Gamelink’s Jeff Dillon, Sportsheets’ Tom Stewart, Topco Sales’ Desiree Duffy, AAANews’ Sid Grief, XBIZ’s Moe Helmy, FSC Board member Mara Epstein, and many more.
“Our members and contributors help FSC do important work on behalf of the entire industry, with important issues like .XXX domains, anti-piracy efforts and workplace safety. So, again, we want to thank everyone for their support of FSC,” Cachapero added. “Especially after a long week of events and work – it was wonderful to have a chance to relax, have a drink and talk with old and new friends.”
