A bunch of gentlemen's clubs around town, like Larry Flynt's Hustler Club, Roaring 20's, the Condor, Centerfolds, Little Darlings and more are hosting the SF Fire Fighters' Toy Program to collect holiday goodies for kids.
On Saturday, November 20th, the toy drive kicks off its ongoing collections at these clubs through December 19th. Bring a new, wrapped toy or monetary donation and you'll receive free admission to the club of your choice. Dancers will also be giving lap dances for charity all night long.

This Friday, November 12th, amFAR's black tie San Francisco Fall Gala sweeps through the Four Seasons Hotel to honor local luminaries and philanthropists John and Marcia Goldman, as well as SF Symphony conductor Michael Tilson Thomas, all of whom have given their time in the fight against AIDS.
