The Bucks Motorcycle Club (www.bucksmc.org), based in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, has announced that its 36th annual Santa Saturday® (which is a registered trademark, exclusively the property of Bucks MC), an extremely popular function, billed as "the oldest and largest East Coast leather charity event," will take place on November 28, the Saturday of Thanksgiving Weekend, beginning at noon, at Paradise, the club at the Empress Hotel in Asbury Park, New Jersey, the venue in which it took place for the first time last year. Previous Santa Saturdays® have been held in New Hope, Pennsylvania, but the enjoyable fundraiser's loyal adherents-hundreds of leathermen and women and bears, from the tri-state area and beyond-ensured that it was a success at its new location as well.

Santa Saturday® consists of a benefit auction-usually of leather items, Christmas items, artwork, gift baskets, and hotel and guesthouse stays-and a show-featuring singers and drag entertainers-from 1 to 6 p.m., with food and beverages, photos with a leatherbear Santa, and leather vendors' wares available. Admission is a $15 donation. The event usually raises more than $20,000, and past Santa Saturdays® have netted over $425,000 for such organizations as Center House of Asbury Park, an AIDS services organization; the Bucks County Area Agency on Aging; Check-Mate of Monmouth County; and the AIDS Community Alliance.

Paradise (www.paradise.nj.com) and the Empress Hotel (www.asburyempress.com, 732/774-0100) are located at 101 Asbury Avenue, a block away from the boardwalk, the beach and the Atlantic Ocean. The host hotel is offering a special room rate, as it did last year, to those attending Santa Saturday®, so mention that when making a reservation. The cost is $189 for just Saturday night, or $290 for Friday and Saturday nights.

"Come join us for what has proven to be a great day," invite Bucks MC President Nikk Kriss, Road Captain and Co-Chair José Reyes, and Vice-President and Co-Chair John Ramos.
