VENICE, Calif. — Lauren Phillips has announced she is sponsoring the 2018 XRCO Awards.
“This is my first-time sponsoring, I am excited to be a part of something so wonderful,” Phillips said. “I really want to help more this year and I think this is the next step. With #SpreadTheLove and sponsoring the XRCO awards, I want to contribute to my community and I think this is a great way. I also want to show that a performer can build their business like bigger companies. It's all about saving and planning.”
Phillips is only the second performer to come in as a sponsor, a role usually reserved for companies — and her support has not gone unnoticed or unappreciated by the organization.
“I love Lauren!” XRCO’s co-chairman Dirty Bob said. “First met her in person at XRCO two years ago – she was there, eager, even before the doors opened. Aside from Angela White, I believe she is the only star to become a sponsor of the event — which is greatly appreciated as she is doing it on her own and not for political reasons. In fact, voting was already over when she became a sponsor. I'm thrilled that she is managing her career in such a positive direction.”
Phillips, who has been a big hit at industry trade shows like Exxxotica and the NightMoves Awards, was also one of the driving forces behind this year’s #SpreadTheLove campaign and donated a percentage of her camming to combat cyber-bullying, a spokersperson said. She was also instrumental in the #SpreadTheLove party in April that saw all proceeds go to ETCB and Adult Performer Advocacy Committee (APAC).
Her sponsorship package includes her logo on the red carpet press wall, a banner on XRCO.com for a full year, a half-page ad in the show’s program, a mention in all press releases as a sponsor, a table at the awards show and electronic signage at the awards show.
This year’s XRCO Awards will be the second for Phillips. Previously she did red carpet interviews, something she calls “the best experience for me and my career.” She is nominated for Unsung Starlet at this year’s show.
At Exxxotica Denver, Phillips debuted her new 3V Starlet Stroker from her sponsor 1AmDolluUSA. It features Phillip’s voice in addition to a realistic vaginal texture and multiple vibration settings. For more information, click here.
The 2018 XRCO Awards will be held June 28 at OHM in Hollywood. Red carpet starts at 7 p.m. and the awards at 9 p.m.
Phillips is also doing twice-weekly Twitch streams, on Thursdays and Sundays at 6 p.m. (PST). To join her stream, click here.
