Queens to honor members May 2

TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. — Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation (TTCF) recently announced their annual Queen of Hearts Women’s Fund dinner.

“I believe the Queen of Hearts Women’s Fund is making a significant impact on the lives of so many people in the North Tahoe region, and I look forward to the upcoming dinner.
