Horizon Casino Resort will host a reunion today to celebrate the property’s history.
Opened originally in 1965 as Del Webb’s Sahara Tahoe, the property was known for its location, views of the lake and top-notch performance list for the showroom, a press release stated. Elvis Presley himself was a regular performer in the intimate showroom from 1971-76, according to the release. The property was rebranded in 1983 with a western theme and became the Del Webb’s High Sierra Hotel. In 1990, it became a Columbia Sussex property and was once again rebranded as the Horizon Casino Resort.
Anyone who was a former executive, employee, customer or fan is invited to the reunion, which will be held poolside at the Horizon Casino Resort. Guests are asked to bring any old photos, T-shirts, souvenirs and memorabilia to share.
The reunion will take place from 4-8 p.m. Tickets cost $20 and include a dinner buffet and entertainment. They can be purchased at the door. A cash bar will be available as well. For more information, visit www.prentertainment.net.
