The Leather Archives and Museum announced today that CLAW (Cleveland Leather Awareness Weekend) donated $8,000 to the Leather Archives following the CLAW 2013 event. The CLAW Nation Silent Auction at International Mr. Leather 2013 raised an additional $4,000 for the LA&M. Since its inception in 2002, CLAW has donated over $75,000 to the Leather Archives and Museum and has raised over $460,000 in charitable funds nationwide.
Curator of Etienne Art Exhibit at CLAW 2013 and Operations Director of the Leather Archives and Museum Jeffrey Storer said "CLAW has been an important part of the growth of the Leather Archives over the past decade. CLAW celebrates Leather history and culture through its dedication to erotic art and by hosting the Leather Hall of Fame ceremonies."
