Bacon, Boots and Blood (or, "OMG What a success!")

I just returned to my home that smells like the remnants of 30 pounds of cooked bacon and quickly calculated the funds raised from tonights FUNraiser.

The bootblacking, lap dances, drawings and silent auctions raised $1680! The door raised approximately $1502, of which we receive 50%, so $750.

The total raised was $2432 before expenses of $267.51 == $2164.49!! (All numbers are approximate based on final door receipts to be determined by the CSPC)

I consider this a huge success that could not have been done without a large amount of people:

Marfim (for being the FUNraiser extraordinaire)
MissBeccaBee (for bootblacking all night)
Seattle Women in Leather (the food was amazing!)
Raven (I will dearly pay for what happened, at some point)
Diamond Jack (Seriously. The cowboy hat was.... HAWT!)
Opium (Stunningly gorgeous, as always!)

My deep gratitude goes to all of the people, vendors and producers that assisted with providing donations for the event:

Elegant Ashes
Rods by Rane
Twisted Toys
Team Fluffy
Serviam House
Sin in the City
Hammerfell Armoury
Conzept Designs

To my friends, my family, my sisters and all of the attendees: Thank you so very much for making such a great night happen!

Macabre Masquerade

Seattle Women in Leather’s inaugural fundraiser was a magnificent success! On March 28th 2014, SWL hosted the Macabre Masquerade Fundraiser for the Center for Sex Positive Culture. The list of activities and entertainment was endless, but a few highlights include: Roaming Magician, Body Painting, Taro Card readings, Poi Dance performances, A Live Voodoo Doll, Face Readings, 2 Hosted Mocktail Bars, Hors d' vours, Vampire Scene, Silent Art Auction, Activity Tasting Stations galore and even a sexy bead thrower adorned in a top hat! Five months of rigorous planning by the amazing Mardi gras event board: Kel, Mach, Mare, Lola, Pippy and Alyxe, made this event truly spectacular!

A huge thank you to all the volunteers!!!!! We couldn’t have done it without you. It took over 150 volunteer hours to make this vision come to fruition. The set-up crew, the servers, the performers, the tasting station volunteers, the photographer, the tear-down crew, you were all crucial in making this event happen. This event began planning before we opened up membership in January, making this a huge undertaking for a brand new organization, and can I just say: WOW. You women blow me away. The camaraderie, the love and the fun…Great Job Everyone!

In Leather,
Vice President
