Father's Day feed at the Cuff for Lambert House

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Staff Writer

Each year, the Seattle Men in Leather host a Chili Feed at the Cuff Complex on Father's Day to raise money for Lambert House, a center for LGBTQ youth that encourages empowerment through the development of leadership, social and life skills.. The event has become a tradition for the Cuff Complex and the Men in Leather, who are happy to provide support for this good cause.

"This year's Chili Feed, held from 4-8 p.m. last Sunday, was a huge success - fun was had by all," said Seattle Men in Leather President Toby "TJ" Noon. "The chili, both meat and vegetarian, as well as the other fixings were made from scratch by Cuff Complex owner Randy Fields."

This year's Chili Feed went exceptionally well, thanks to the support of the community, with the Seattle Men in Leather raising nearly $750.

It's easy to see why this event is so well received - it's easy on the wallet. A meager $5 buys you a bottomless bowl of chili; cheeseburgers were $4, and chilidogs went for $3.

The money raised at the Chili Feed will support the various programs, events and activities at Lambert House. All proceeds went to Lambert House.

TJ said the Cuff Complex management and staff always do all they can to help give back to and support the community. He said over the years the Cuff has always helped the Seattle Men in Leather raise money for their various beneficiaries over the years.

"Lambert House has been one of our beneficiaries for many years," TJ said. "We try to show our support for various groups in our community, but Lambert House has always been an important one for us to support - LGBT youth are our future."

Lambert House is a safe environment for Queer youth ages 22 and under and is located at 1818 15th Ave. on Capitol Hill. According to the house's website, approximately 25 youth visit each day. The drop-in center has a full kitchen, living room with a pool table, a stereo, a library with Queer books, TV, and board games. The Lambert House drop-in center is open Monday through Friday 4-9:30 p.m. For more information about Lambert House, visit www.lamberthouse.org.

"As president of Seattle Men in Leather, I would like to personally thank Cuff Complex owner Randy Fields, manager Dan Daniels (a.k.a. Puppy), head of security (Daddy) Jeff Henness and the Cuff Complex staff for their ongoing and continuing support of not only Seattle Men in Leather and their many beneficiaries - but for their support of our community as a whole," said TJ.

"The Cuff Complex has been Seattle Men in Leather's home bar since they opened 16 years ago," said TJ.
