History of Santa Saturday®
Santa Saturday® originated in New Hope, Pennsylvania and is the the oldest and largest East Coast leather charity event. The Buck’s Motorcycle Club has been hosting this charitable event for 40 years. Money raised goes to local charities. Santa Saturday® is a sanctioned event by the Atlantic Motorcycle Coordinating Council.

On October 31, 1972, The Bucks Motorcycle Club was born in New Hope, Pennsylvania. We are an organization whose fraternal atmosphere provides men of the leather, levi, and motorcycle interests with the opportunity to enjoy mutual fellowship through various social activities. In addition for over 40 years the Bucks MC has held our annual charity event, Santa Saturday®, which draws over one thousand individuals raising funds to benefit HIV/AIDS and other local charities. The Bucks MC is a “not for profit” organization.
