Silent Auction Items Needed

It’s that time of year again, and the 15 Association anniversary dinner is rapidly approaching.  Once again we are asking for donations for our Silent Auction which is taking place at the dinner on Friday, February 24th. We are looking for donations of leather goods, S&M gear, or pervertables in general.

So clean out your closet and see what there is to donate!  It all goes towards keeping The 15 up and producing the fine parties we all love so much.

If you have anything you would like to donate, contact Dustin via email at dly44boy1dr@yahoo.com or call him at 415-259-7020.

We thank you all for your support.
