In August 2004, the Sin City Chamber of Commerce of Las Vegas was founded by Loretta Holt, Wayne Bridge, and Michael Russell to provide every legal business an opportunity to network, market, and provide support to the local business community.
Holt and Bridge were former employees at the 100 year old Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce and discovered a tacit policy of discrimination against adult entertainment companies including brothels, swinger clubs and gentlemen’s clubs.
With the words, “Wouldn’t it be great to have a Chamber where everyone is welcome, think of the fun networking events we could have” Loretta Holt put into motion an idea that would lead to the founding of a new Chamber of Commerce for Las Vegas.
In late 2004, the Chicken Ranch Brothel became the first brothel to join the Sin City Chamber of Commerce. As a Charter Member of the Sin City Chamber or Commerce, the Chicken Ranch Brothel joined 100 other local businesses in creating the foundation for a new chamber experience. Although open to the adult industry and in fact any legal business, 80% of the Sin City Chamber of Commerce Membership consists of Las Vegas’ mainstream businesses.
In September of 2004, the Sin City Chamber of Commerce website which promotes all forms of adult and mainstream entertainment was launched by founder Michael Russell. The Sin City Chamber of Commerce website is the first online presence by a Chamber of Commerce that positively promotes safe, legal prostitution and the various adult entertainment businesses that make Las Vegas, Sin City.
In April 2005, the Sin City Chamber of Commerce held the first ever Sin City Chamber Chicken Ranch Brothel Experience which began as a simple spring BBQ for members and has grown into an annual event with a carnival, a golf tournament, chili cook-off, and car show.
On Friday April 20, 2007, the Sin City Chamber of Commerce held the first ever Chicken Ranch Cup Spring Golf Classic. The event, sponsored by the Chicken Ranch Brothel, Déjà vu Gentlemen’s Club, and Desert Logo, along with 18 hole sponsors was enjoyed by all of the participants. Golfers from all over the country participated in this best ball/shotgun start competition.
SCCC Member Paul Casper of Liberty Realty and his team (Dave Barker, Devon Lee, Brian Dushan) captured first place with a score of 65. Team Runway Gentlemen’s Club (William Hovi, Mike Gillette, Clint Smith, Jeremy) also shot a score of 65, and was awarded second place. Controversy ensued upon announcing the results, as it was discovered that Team Brown Blankfeld Group (Joel Stellzner, Harvy Blankfeld, Scott Rotheiser, Darryl Dempsey) shot a 61 yet failed to calculate their score and sign their card. (A tough lesson learned about signing your score cards!!)
The Executive Staff of the Sin City Chamber of Commerce, having taken all accounts into consideration, declared a three way tie for first and each team had their names engraved upon the cup. The Chicken Ranch Cup, designed by Desert Logo, is a 20 pound ‘loving cup’ imported from Europe that will be proudly displayed at the Leghorn Bar located inside the Chicken Ranch Brothel in Pahrump, NV.
On September 1, 2007, Las Vegas golfers competed for the first ever Sin City Chamber of Commerce Scores Las Vegas Sin City Cup.
Nisha Sadekar, Colin McDougal, CEO of Thunderball, Mike Dobbyn, Guinness World Record Holder for Longest Dive (551 yards), and Paul Casper (2006 SCCC Golf Classic Winner and 2007 SCCC Chicken Ranch Cup Winner) took home first.
