The Leather Masked Ball ® is the premiere annual dance party and charity event in South Florida’s Leather Community. Featuring beats by DJ Alex Ferbeyre. The venue varies each year.
The Leather Masked Ball ® was founded in 2006 and is produced by a local group of dedicated volunteers from Leather Men’s Brotherhood. Ticket sales and the funds donated go to various charities.
Whether you’re a hard core Leather Man or just a little Leather-Curious and like to wear leather because it makes you feel sexy, we want you to come and enjoy yourself. If you don’t have leather this is a great excuse to get some. Or just wear one of our Leather Masked Ball ® T Shirts and you’ll fit right in.
You’ll enjoy great music and entertainment while surrounded by some of the hottest Leather Men on the planet. Cool is stuff for sale in the Silent Auction. All are welcome and you don’t need to wear a mask.
