On behalf of Durk, Sharp and everyone at Tom of Finland Foundation, we want to offer our most sincere and heartfelt thanks to everybody who helped make TOM’s Bar 2012 – the Daddy’s Day fundraiser at the FAULTLINE – one of our most successful fundraising efforts of the year. The entire FAULTLINE staff was at the top of their game providing our guests with the best service in LA. We cannot forget our dedicated (and sexy) Volunteers who went above and beyond the call of duty to insure that Tom’s legacy will live on in the hearts of hunky men (and friends of the arts) everywhere. Speaking of which, those two yummy studs with Cousins Maine Lobster Truck can butter my buns anytime they want. Hmmm, hmmm good!
PLEASE COME OUT AND HONOR TOM

HONOR YOURSELF AND CELEBRATE
“Tom asked me not to have a funeral but to have a party—like a scene from his artwork—people coming together and having a hell of a good time. We created a celebration— the first ‘TOM’s Bar’ in 1992, which has become a Tom of Finland Foundation annual event honoring Tom.”
I wanted to show Gays they can feel happy together. I wanted to tell them they have a right to enjoy life in their way – Gays being together feeling happy, being proud of who they are.
—Tom of Finland
