Robbi Racks to Sponsor “Best Internet Personality” Award at 2016 TEAs

 

Robbi RacksLos Angeles, CA – Grooby Network performer Robbi Racks announced her first-time sponsorship of the “Best Internet Personality” Award at the upcoming Transgender Erotica Awards.

After much discussion between Racks, award donor THE 1000 PLUS REAL ESTATE TRANSACTIONS GUY, and Grooby, they decided to sponsor the “Best Internet Personality” Award with the intention of awarding it to someone in the industry who uses their social media presence to support the community.

“In the past year, I’m happy to have been fortunate to  have been a Grooby Girl and be able to host a solo website with the Grooby Network,” said Robbi Racks. “Now I’m able to step up and support the greater transgender community in several ways and that includes being a sponsor of the 2016 Transgender Erotica Awards (TEA). Locally, in Las Vegas, I work closely on a no charge name and gender marker change program for less fortunate transgender individuals.  It is my hope that both of these programs continue for a very long time.”

She added, “In 2015 I met THE 1000 PLUS REAL ESTATE TRANSACTIONS GUY, a gentleman that holds a strong passion in both community service as well as the rights of transgender persons. After several conversations we agreed that the transgender adult entertainment community should acknowledge those individuals, be it transgender talent, film makers, producers or staff, that use their good fortune and take from there own person time to give back to other transgender persons, whether that be through fundraising, volunteering, mentoring or other activities. So this year we’re very happy to sponsor the TEA’s ‘Best Internet Personality’ Award.”   

“I really appreciate Robbi’s desire to sponsor this particular category and suggest we use it to honor not only someone who has a strong social media presence, but a person who also uses that reach to help their community,” stated Grooby’s Marketing and Editorial Director Kristel Penn. “I think it gives recognition to many in our industry who want to do more than just make porn.”

Members can expect an unique behind-the-scenes look at Robbi Racks’ sexcapades. She has also started her own production company called VegasTrannySex. The Las Vegas Transsexual will be offering a free webcam show for members each month and will be performing regularly on TGirl-Cams.com for all those steamy late night sessions. Visit her official website at RobbiRacks.XXX. Press inquires for Robbi Racks can be directed to vegastgirl@gmail.com.  Why suffer from inexperience, when you can choose experience, Contact THE 1000 PLUS REAL ESTATE TRANSACTIONS GUY  at sidleegrp@aol.com.

ATTN: 2016 TEA Nominees

Dear Nominee!
Congratulations again on your TEA nomination! The 2016 TEAs are quickly approaching and since we’ve received numerous inquiries about this, we’d like to outline our ticket policy for nominees and their guests.
As a nominee, you receive free admission for yourself to the Awards (March 6 at the Avalon) and the After Party (March 7 at the Bardot). This is non-transferrable, which means, you cannot give away your ticket to someone else.
 
To be added to our nominee guestlist, you MUST RSVP to kristel@grooby.com as soon as possible.  
Unfortunately, we cannot give free +1. We wish we could, but it simply is not feasible for us to do so. Our multi-day event is very expensive to run and is funded by our sponsors and Grooby.
If you are looking to purchase an additional ticket for your date/guest, we recommend they do so in advance at the link below. Pre-sale tickets are discounted (it’s even cheaper if you buy the Awards/After Party package) than purchasing at the door that night.
Reserved table seating is no guaranteed as a nominee, as that section is for sponsors only. So unless a sponsor has invited you to their table, that area will be reserved.  We do have plenty of theatre seating upstairs and bar areas with great views.
In the coming weeks, we’ll be issuing out information about our first ever TEA Con fan convention scheduled for Saturday, March 5, from 1-5pm. This is an opportunity for fans to meet you, take pics, etc. If you are interested in participating, email Kristel at kristel@grooby.com.
