Dan was introduced to the leather community at the Bound South Leather Masked Ball in Ft. Lauderdale. Over the past several years, he has done volunteer work with Cross Roads Food Bank and Volunteer Broward, donating his time and energy to help at numerous fundraising events. For the past four years he has spent his Thanksgivings passing out dinners to needy families who could not afford to celebrate the holidays. Professionally, Dan has worked as a fraud investigator for a national bank helping locate fraud rings both locally and internationally and is now working as the Director of Marketing for Broward Institute, a Ft. Lauderdale based rehabilitation center and nursing home.
Come help Dan raise much needed money so he can go to Chicago and represent Florida at the International Mr. Leather contest. His benefits are on Saturday May 16th at Ramrod from 10 pm to 2 am and on Sunday May 17th at Jackhammer T from 8 pm to midnight. Dan will be raffling off baskets, have silent auction items, etc.
