Snoop Balls For Charity
"We are excited about Snoop Dogg's live performance and his involvement with the show," says Ball producer Howard Mauskopf, "but we are blown away by his generosity. This is a true case of an artist doing the right thing. Snoop’s people came up with the idea for all the initial money to go to a neighborhood charity called The Healing Circle – these are mothers who have lost children to inner city violence. The Healing Circle provides support for them, as they have already suffered the worst loss a mother can suffer, and are so easily forgotten by our harsh society. We think these are the most real victims of violent crime. We also like the fact that this is a charity you don't read about in the society pages – no fancy dinners here. Money is paid directly to those in need; we sincerely hope to change lives. Snoop is doing a wonderful thing. We're just glad the Ball can assist."
