Earlier in the day, Mayor Butts and Snoop Dogg, along with the city council members, passed out turkeys to nearly 800 families at the Forum.  Mayor Butts credited the smooth functioning of the event to the assistance of his Sr. Assistant Melanie McDade, who coordinated the giveaway.  “The event was a picture of Inglewood at its best…community, charity and fellowship.  I want to thank Snoop, MSG and the Forum for working with the City to make this a happier Thanksgiving for 800 families.” said Mayor Butts.
