Tahoe Mountain Resorts Foundation (TMRF), a nonprofit dedicated to enriching the Truckee and North Lake Tahoe communities, realizes organizations rely on outside funding to operate, especially now. In its ongoing efforts to find innovative ways to help local nonprofits, Tahoe Mountain Resorts Foundation hosted this year’s Charity Golf Classic. Including this year’s event, TMRF in conjunction with East West Partners, raised nearly $400,000 for The Boys andamp; Girls Club of North Lake Tahoe.“Generous contributions, like those received from TMRF and East West Partners, keep our programs alive. We cannot be more thankful,” said Isabelle Rodriguez Wilson, executive director of The Boys andamp; Girls Club North Lake Tahoe. “Everyone should get involved to help support our community. This can easily be done by buying a raffle ticket for the Lake Tahoe Dream Home Raffle.”
At the next early bird drawing for the Lake Tahoe Dream Home Raffle on Saturday, Nov. 7, a separate drawing will take place awarding the “Refer-A-Friend” winner $5,000. Future Refer-A-Friend drawings will be awarded a total of $43,200. For the next 15 weeks, $200 will be awarded weekly to two lucky winners who have referred friends.
