By Sydistic

'Tis the season of giving. The Christmas holiday is a time of family and of friends. It is also a time giving and helping out those in need. This has always been a fundamental foundation of Leather Uniform Club of Las Vegas (LUCofLV) since its founding in 1998 and today it still is. Yes LUCofLV does raunchy things, sexy things, I’m going to be telling this story twenty-years-later things, but that is not the only thing that the club is all about. At the end of the day the members are human and it’s that human side that is often times driven to help others. For whatever the individual reasons are members of LUCofLV have a want and/or need to help out in the local community.
