This is further proof that the adult entertainment industry truly cares about sending a message of corporate responsibility and self-regulation.

"We at FSC are so appreciative to everyone who contributed, it is heartwarming to get so much support from the industry," said Diane Duke, CEO of FSC. "Thank you to [XBIZ founder and publisher, Alec Helmy, and XBIZ Events Manager and Producer, Moe Helmy] and everyone at XBIZ for their generosity and this incredible opportunity to reach out to the industry."

Alec Helmy added, “We were honored to provide a special forum to raise funds for these two critically important industry organizations. We want to express our sincere gratitude to both FSC and ASACP for all they do to protect our industry.”
