Ron Greenwood Fundraiser

Master Olivier sent the following about helping a leather brother in need.

The benefit for Ron Greenwood’s medical expenses has been set for Saturday Feb 4th at 10 PM at Club Mavericks in Tulsa OK. Pup Sparky and Master Olivier will be attending so if anyone has something they would like to donate to the silent auction, please email Olivier directly.

 Many of you are out of state, and wondering how you can help. Send any donations, event certificates, etc to Olivier and he will make sure they're all added to the pile. If you prefer to donate directly, the items can go to either Wes Bigfeather on Facebook or to the President of TULSA – www.tulsaleather.com  - The bottom line here is to try and raise as much as possible to ease Ron’s stress at this difficult time. Ron was diagnosed a while back with AIDS induced Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or Lou Gehrig’s disease, which is fatal. His medical bills are piling up and the community is coming together to help this man and his boy Ryan Setzkorn, ABW boy 2005.

Ron has been a member of the Oklahoma Leather community for a very long time and has given of himself tirelessly, its time we step up and help him and his family out in his final days.

What Did You Learn, Dorothy?

by Joe Mannetti – Mr. International Daddy Bear 2009

Going back to LA after a year of living back east was a very empowering experience for me. The Southland was my home for twenty-four years after I made the move there from New York back in 1986. I packed up my bags once again in June of 2010 to start a new chapter of my life in Connecticut just outside of the New York area where I grew up. I felt love on my return to LA, and I am very appreciative that I have friends on the west coast who still remember me. I hope that you will always remain my friends. I know that Los Angeles, California will always hold a very special place in my heart.
