Special to the Tribune

Tahoe Youth & Family Services will be accepting donations from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at its office and drop-in center at 1021 Fremont Ave. in South Lake Tahoe on April 23 as part of the 'Give Where You Live Day of Giving Challenge' put on by the El Dorado Community Foundation. The party will then move to the Loft at the Blue Angel Café located at 1132 Ski Run Blvd. from 5 to 8 p.m. Guests are encouraged to grab a bite to eat at the café, and then come upstairs to learn about the programs of Tahoe Youth & Family Services.

The evening at the Loft will also feature live music by local band, Taking Root, and a raffle featuring prizes from area businesses, including gift certificates to MacDuffs Public House, tickets to Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival, and to the Reno Aces. Raffle tickets cost $10 each and are available for purchase all day on the 23rd at the Fremont office and drop-in center and at the event. Participants will use the tickets to bid on prize packages of their choice, and the winners will be announced at 7:30 p.m.

Tahoe Youth & Family Services is just one of 70 non-profit organizations taking part in the second annual Give Where You Live Day of Giving Challenge in El Dorado County. More information on the work of all the local non-profits can be found on the El Dorado Community Foundation website at http://www.eldoradocf.org.
