(HOLLYWOOD, CA) -- Following up on their pledge to donate a portion of June DVD sales of not the Bradys XXX, X-Play has sent a check for one thousand dollars to Ron Sullivan best known as Henri Pachard in an effort to help his fight against cancer. Joining in the effort was LA Direct Models which also contributed a check.
''When we first heard about Ronís struggle there was only one decision to make and we wanted to help out in any way we could as he is truly an adult industry pioneer,'' stated X-Play/All Media Play president Jeff Mullen. ''Over the years each time I would bump into him, he always had a smile on his face and kind words for me.''
LA Direct Models owner Derek Hay was quick to contribute a five hundred dollar check and said, ''Ron is a gentleman of the first order, there are far too few of his ilk remaining in our business, an example and role model for all. We have learned much from him, and feel indebted as a result. We are pleased to help where we can.''
Pachard became an adult movie pioneer a few decades ago and has been an inspiration for many in the business that canít remember a time when shooting porn in Los Angeles was illegal.
''He was here long before any of us even thought about starting our companies,'' stated Scott David co-producer of not the Bradys XXX. ''Weíre happy to be in a position to help out a bit.'' With another blockbuster feature comedy not Bewitched XXX ready for a September release, the X-Play producers understand their good health and encourage others to help the Sullivan family out.
''The first phone call I received was from Derek from LA Direct Models asking how they could help which was really nice,'' Mullen said. ''There is no time like today to help Ron Sullivan and his family out if you are able.''
Adult industry members that wish to donate money can send checks directly to Ron Sullivan at 7658 Topanga Canyon Blvd #108 Canoga Park, CA. 91304.
