Twisted Toyland 2011

On Saturday December 17, SIR Alan and I helped alongside our club brothers and sisters of Panther L/L, at Twisted Toyland.  Twisted Toyland is a local event here (see below for history) that happens every December to benefit the Atlanta Community Foodbank.  They have TONS of BDSM vendors along with raffle prizes and great demos.  Plus its just a heck of a lot of fun.  SIR Alan certainly left his fair share of bite marks and bruises on willing recipients, and we also got asked to do a Dirty Santa scene on stage LOL.  All in all we had so much fun and I am already looking forward to next year.  If you’re ever in Atlanta in early December be sure to check it out for sure.

For ten years the metro-Atlanta alternative lifestyle community has helped raise money for those less fortunate at Twisted Toyland. The giving tradition continued this past weekend as a record total of 503 people enjoyed the Twisted Toyland™ festivities at the Jungle Club. That included the 67 volunteers, chili makers and sweet treat bakers and 20 merchants with their 38 staff workers.   
This year the Atlanta Community Food Bank is the recipient of the $3500 net profit raised from admission, food sales, raffle tickets and the Erotic Candy Cane Contest. 
The Atlanta Community Food Bank currently distributes nearly two million pounds of food and other donated grocery items each month to more than 700 nonprofit partner agencies in 38 counties in Metro Atlanta and North Georgia. The Food Bank also operates several community projects to aid childrens education, community building, technical assistance and advocacy efforts. For every dollar spent, 94 cents (including the value of all donated food) goes directly to services in the community. 

Twisted Toyland™ began in 2001 as Atlanta Fetish Flea Market. by Elegant, slave to Master Archer. It was planned as a small vending event to raise medical funds for bob harris, boy of Papa Doug Harris (founder of the now defunct Sanctuary Atlanta). Boy bob died of AIDS before the event but funds raised from the 75 shoppers were put towards his medical expenses. Twisted Toyland has grown each year and various charitable organizations and individuals have benefited from the event.
Plans for Twisted Toyland™ 2012 are already underway.
