Community supporters of South Tahoe Athletic Teams have continued to make strides with $9,500 collected for a $15,000 matching fund set up by Tahoe Crescent Partners and Village Center merchants.

Tahoe Crescent Partners and Village Center merchants make up South Lake Tahoe’s new Village Center adjacent to Heavenly Village. The Village Center merchants have pledged $5,000 and the Tahoe Crescent Partners $10,000 for a total of $15,000 that will be contributed dollar-for-dollar via a matching fund donated by local contributors.

Every dollar contributed by the community up to $15,000 will be matched, making for a total of $30,000.

“It is our understanding that with this matching fund and upcoming events, STAT will meet its goal,” said Terry Hackett of Tahoe Crescent Partners. “All of the Village Center merchants who are part of this community are pleased to do their part.”

With the window closing in and a sense of urgency, the $15,000 will be available to match contributions up until Dec. 31.

“This exemplifies the community spirit of the Village Center Merchants and Tahoe Crescent Partners and we are thankful that local businesses continue to step up to the challenge,” said Mark Garratt, STAT president.

“We are pleased with our beautiful new Village Center and the success of our merchants. We know the community will continue to support our fine merchants at the Village Center and will appreciate their participation with the STAT program,” Hackett said.

Support STAT has raised over $160,000 to date toward the $200,000 goal to ensure that 100 percent of sports programs will take place for the fall season sports programs. With the help of the matching fund, the organization is on the way to fully funding the winter programs.

Donations are tax deductible via 501c3 trust and are deposited in the STAT account through the Goal Club/STAT. Checks can be made out and mailed to: Goal Club/STAT, P.O. Box 16903, South Lake Tahoe, CA 96151.
