Excelsior Motorcycle Club held its annual Trim-a-Tree party, at the Eagle NYC, on December 7 and the festive, well-attended event brought Excelsior members and guests, including many titleholders, both local and from out of town, to the Eagle. Trim-a-Tree 2018 benefited New Alternatives, which assists homeless LGBT youth.
There were raffles for gift baskets, gift certificates, theater tickets, and drink tickets. Attendees could have their Polaroid photos taken with Leather Santa Thom Kam, Mr. Eagle NYC Leather 2019. There was entertainment by bear and cub dancers Danny Jimenez, Mr. Fire Island Bear 2017, and Bam Bam, Mr. New York Unlimited Cub 2018. Representatives of all the leather clubs present were invited to trim the tree.
