Strippers and Hustlers Ball to Celebrate Labor Day by Handing Thousands of $10 Bills to Union Workers

Las Vegas Extravaganza Takes Over Orleans Arena, Labor Day Weekend; Richard Vission, Gilby Clarke, Genitorturers Headline; Heather Chadwell Hosts Stripper Contest

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - August 13, 2008) - Perry Mann has announced that to honor Labor Day, he will hand a $10 bill to any union or government employee attending his upcoming shindig -- the Strippers and Hustlers Ball, at the Orleans Arena over -- you guessed it -- Labor Day weekend. Mann has already begun to stockpile $10 bills.

"Perry has always been charitable," says Ball producer Howard Mauskopf. "Twenty-nine years ago, his friend Louis was running for President under the Nudist Party with the slogan 'I have nothing to hide.' Perry threw a fundraising party which he called The Exotic Erotic Ball. Now, the Exotic Erotic Ball fills an arena in San Francisco with 20,000 people every Halloween -- all the result of a single charitable deed." The Exotic Erotic Ball is often termed the wildest and sexiest event ever, and Mann has garnered over 50 awards and multiple mayoral proclamations.

The Strippers and Hustlers Ball is Mann's first foray into Vegas. "We've had many offers to do Vegas, but the Orleans Arena over Labor Day weekend was ideal. We don't do anything halfway, though, so I am pulling out the stops for this one!"

A week ago, Mann noticed how the concept of Labor Day was lost. The holiday that once celebrated hard working Americans, was now merely an earmark for the end of summer. So he came up with the idea to give $10 bills to all union workers attending the show.

"I'm doing this for two reasons," said Mann. "First, I want to honor the people who represent the backbone of the American work-force. Second, I want to publicize the fact that Labor Day weekend was originally intended to honor them, too."

The $10 bills are circulated upon entry, with ID. Those eligible include casino workers (employee ID), local night club and bar workers (TAM/Health cards), police and firemen (badge or ID), military personnel (ID), and all union members (valid membership cards). Accountants, proctologists, and investment bankers -- sorry, not eligible.

The Strippers & Hustlers Ball features Richard Vission, Mobius8, Scooter and Lavelle, Drummer KC, Gilby Clarke, Guns N' Roses, The Genitorturers, D'Amato, Girls Girls Girls and a stripper competition both nights. The show also boasts top burlesque artists, the planet's most downloaded supermodel, the largest ever girl-on-girl pillow fight, and Heather Chadwell -- America's #1 reality TV personality, also an ex-stripper who will host the competition.
