Sheree Whitfield Partners With New Online Entertainment Shopping Destination To Offer One Lucky Fan A $10,000 Shopping Spree In New York City
DETROIT,MI - October 8, 2012 - On Monday, October 8, 2012, the launch of PennyStorm.com will mark the beginning of a revolution in entertainment shopping. And for the consumer whose shopping decisions and retail desires are influenced by celebrity culture, PennyStorm will offer an unprecedented opportunity to follow in their favorite star's footsteps.
PennyStorm.com is the world's first online entertainment shopping destination-allowing members to win exclusive merchandise and purchase the latest technology and high-end fashions at astronomical discounts, using a unique bidding system. Upon joining the site, each member purchases "bids," which they will then use to compete with other members for the chance to win items ranging from designer iPad accessories to NASCAR tickets at prices close to 90% below the suggested retail price.
Founded by Detroit, MI-based entrepreneur Warren DuBose, the site is a culmination of new age demands and next level vision. "What sets us apart from our competitors is our "Dream Events", exclusive celebrity-endorsed lifestyle auctions, which gives the fans nearly unrestricted access to their favorite stars," states the VP of Operations, William Tolbert. Through partnerships with celebrities across all facets and genres in entertainment, PennyStorm.com aims to offer fans a first-hand glimpse into the lifestyles of the rich and famous. No less than twice a month, PennyStorm members will have the opportunity to bid on a once-in-a-lifetime "Dream Event" experience that will allow them a day in the lap of luxury.
To kick off this entertainment shopping experience, PennyStorm has partnered with former "Real Housewives Of Atlanta" star Sheree Whitfield to offer one lucky fan an all-expense-paid $10,000 shopping spree in New York City, where she will serve as the winner's shopping buddy. The auction for this "Dream Event" will start immediately upon PennyStorm.com's October 8 launch and will be open for a minimum of 48-hours. But the beauty of PennyStorm's "Dream Events" is that each and every one will serve as a fundraising tool for a good cause. "Our number one goal is to create significant revenue streams for lesser known non-profit organizations through celebrity collaboration and partnership," states DuBose. "A portion of the proceeds from all 'Dream' auctions will be donated to a non-profit, based on a celebrity donation percentage, and PennyStorm's celebrity matching multiplier.
For her first of many PennyStorm.com "Dream" auctions, Sheree has selected the Wish Upon A Hero Foundation as her benefitting charity. The Wish Upon A Hero Foundation grants the wishes of those in need, working to raise funds and awareness for causes ranging from some of the most well known in the world to rare diseases and specialized disabilities.

LONG BEACH, Calif. – Rappers Snoop Dogg, Warren G and The Game joined family, friends and about 1,000 fans of Nate Dogg to remember the hip-hop singer, who died this month of complications from multiple strokes.
The family of Nate Dogg — whose real name was Nathaniel Dwayne Hale — decided that the ceremony at the Queen Mary Dome would not be open to the public as they previously wanted, but they made 1,000 tickets and shuttles available to fans.
The dome in Hale's hometown of Long Beach is adjacent to the historic ship the Queen Mary and was the former home of Howard Hughes' airplane folly, the Spruce Goose.
Organizers had sought a more central location for the funeral, but none proved large enough for the numbers of expected mourners. A private dinner was planned after the service.
Hale started out singing in church choirs, then formed a group with Snoop Dogg and Warren G while the trio was in high school in Long Beach.
His almost monotone vocal stylings anchored some of rap's most seminal songs and helped define the sound of West Coast hip-hop on tracks usually produced by Dr. Dre and performed by rappers like Snoop Dogg, Tha Dogg Pound and Warren G. He remained sought after as a singer more than a decade after his original success, supplying vocals to more recent tracks by 50 Cent and Ludacris.
Hale dropped out of high school, was dishonorably discharged from the Marines and dabbled in the drug trade before finding success as Nate Dogg on Dr. Dre's classic 1992 album "The Chronic."
Late in life, he was plagued by legal and health problems, including at least two strokes in 2008.
