Leather Knights begin another year of fundraising with a New Year’s party, and you’re invited

Jason Kloss

On Monday night, Leather Knights distributed checks from several events held during the year to AIDS Services of Dallas, Resource Center Dallas, Youth First Texas and AIDS Interfaith Network.

Jason Kloss, president of Leather Knights, said he’s having a New Year’s party and asked us to help him invite the community.

“All I am asking of my guests is to consider bringing a donation to benefit either the Food Pantry or AIDS Services Dallas-Hillcrest House,” he said. “They prefer daily hygiene products (toothpaste, soap, toilet paper, razors, deodorant) or non-perishable food items (canned goods, pasta, condiments).”

Kloss said the party will feature an open bar and any tips to the volunteer bartenders will benefit AIN. Any other donations will also go to the beneficiaries.

The party starts at 9 p.m. on Dec. 31. E-mail Jason for directions.

FREE TICKETS: Home & Garden show featuring Joey Green —who just added these useful tips

In the hard copy of the Dallas Voice out today, I talked with Joey Green, who will appear at this weekend’s Home & Garden Market Show. He’s famous for giving new life and multiple uses to household products. Stuff like polishing silverware with toothpaste, teabagging your wooden floors, you know. I asked him about items that may be found in most closets of LGBT peeps. You know how creative we can be with Crisco, Saran Wrap and of course, condoms. No? Just me?

I got an e-mail late Thursday in which Green followed up with a couple more items that probably make our shopping lists at times. So just remember when you dole out the big bucks for quality lube, that you’re also saving because it doubles in another way. His additional suggestions are after the jump.
