Exotic Erotic Ball Founder Perry Mann to Speak at Snoop Dogg Benefit Concert About the Mayor's Retraction of Proclamation

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - October 25, 2007) - The producers of the Exotic Erotic Ball announce that founder Perry Mann will speak live at the Snoop Dogg "All About the Mama's" Benefit Concert, that takes place at the Cow Palace, Friday night at 7 p.m., October 26, 2007. Mr. Mann will speak about the Mayor's surprising decision to rescind the proclamation offered to Perry Mann and Snoop Dogg only days earlier.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported as its October 25th Bay Area Section lead story that the proclamation was rescinded. As a result, Perry Mann and the Healing Circle, a non-profit foundation consisting largely of mothers who have lost children to gunplay and other forms violence and whose primary source of funding comes from public and community donations, feel slighted.

Perry Mann states, "We'd like to say that we understand the City's decision to withdraw the proclamation, but we don't. We'd like to say that we respect the City's decision to withdraw the proclamation, but we can't. The mothers and families of the Healing Circle, some of whom work in this Mayoral administration, have suffered a loss worse than any human being can experience, the loss of a child or loved one to gun violence. The indifference that the Mayor's office has shown to the Healing Circle simply adds insult to injury. The Snoop Dogg performance will continue stronger than ever for the benefit of the Healing Circle. We urge everyone to come down to the Cow Palace Friday night and support it. Now we have two causes."

Mattie Scott, co-founder of the Healing Circle, said, "We are so grateful to Perry Mann, the Exotic Erotic Ball and Snoop Dogg for the funds and exposure they have given to the our cause. We are so often neglected by so many. The Mayor's decision disappoints us, but it is typical of what we face in our quest to be heard on a day-to-day basis. "

The Healing Circle will hold their twice monthly meeting at the Paradise Baptist Church, 2595 San Jose Ave., San Francisco California, on Thursday, October 25, at 7 p.m. All are welcome to attend.
