The holidays are right around the corner, and the South Lake Tahoe Cancer League is ready with its annual Famous Name Candy Sale. This year they’ve added a sure-to-please new cookbook with fantastic recipes, all from local cooks. Many of the recipes have never been shared before.

The candy store is located at 1052 Emerald Bay Road, South Y Shopping Center between Raleys and Kmart. The store will open Nov. 14 and will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily through Dec. 23 or until all the candy is sold. The candy also will be available at most of the businesses where it has been sold for the past several years. For locations call (530) 542-6292.

The Cancer League is a local nonprofit, volunteer organization offering help and assistance to cancer patients who are permanent residents of the South Lake Tahoe area. Varied service programs are available to cancer patients without cost. Included are transportation to medical facilities, locally and in Carson City and Reno; scholarships to local college students specializing in medical fields; and monetary grants.

Funding for programs is made possible by the candy and cookbook fund-raiser and gifts and contributions received from individuals and businesses. These funds are retained locally and used only for services to help local South Shore cancer patients.

The South Lake Tahoe Cancer League motto is “Friends Helping Friends from Glenbrook, Nev., to Emerald Bay, Calif.” The message center phone number is (530) 573-1703.
