“The New Investment Vanguards: Professional Athletes And High Net Worth Individuals’ Role in Community-based Investment”

Canon Capital Partners today announced that it will convene a stellar panel to discuss the role of professional athletes and high net worth individuals in community-based investment during its inaugural Canon Investment Symposium. The forum will be held on Wednesday, July 12, 2006 from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. The panel-focused luncheon, which will coincide with the 2006 ESPY Awards, will take place at The Ritz-Carlton hotel, 4375 Admiralty Way in Marina Del Rey, California. Ronnie Lott, NFL football great and managing member of HRJ Capital, and Billy Hunter, Executive Director of the National Basketball Players Association, are among the panelists who will discuss this timely topic.

The forum is an opportunity for Canon Capital Partners to leverage the expansive network we have developed to drive critical discourse in the important area of community-based investing. "We are really excited about Canon's inaugural Investment Symposium," said President and Chief Executive Officer Nathaniel "Trae" Byrd, III. For Canon, this inaugural symposium represents the convergence of a number of factors central to who we are as a company and as individuals.

Canon's end goal is to facilitate a forum that will lead to coordinated action amongst the attendees on existing CBI opportunities and to foster discussion that will lead to the creation of new community-based investing.
