Celebrate fund-raiser gala at Mulligan’s

Special to the Tribune

Celebrate the third annual “Hollywood Gala” fund-raiser March 11 at Mulligan’s Irish Pub. For the past two years this costumed event has outgrown its previous venues and Mulligan’s has generously donated its Irish Pub as the location for this year’s festivities. The fun begins at 4 p.m. and lasts until 7 p.m.

While costumes are optional, most attendees dress as their favorite film character. Tickets are $17, which includes admission, live music, costume contest, dancing, raffle prizes, appetizers and wine. A great assortment of wonderful prizes and gift certificates will be given away. Tickets are available at the South Lake Tahoe and Tahoe-Douglas chambers of commerce.

Live music will be provided by Awsum Pawsum, a group that is known for its versatile music styles and ability to please most any crowd. This wild American road band will present a lovely evening of beautiful music with Ms. Riskey, Sam Lighting on guitar, delta slide, banjo and mandolin. Ernest Wayne provides bass, comedy, vocals and emcee and Larry Damas is on harmonica.

In past years, the “Hollywood Gala” has featured Mae West, Charlie Chaplin, Ricky Ricardo and Lucille Ball, Marilyn Monroe, Zoro, The Wizard of Oz gang and many others decked out in their most outrageous “celebrity” costumes mingling with the packed crowd.

Come dressed as your favorite film star and help make the second annual Lake Tahoe Film Festival a success. During the film festival weekend, April 6 through 8, venues from one end of the South Shore to the other will turn to the business of film as thousands of movie buffs flock to Lake Tahoe.

For information on the film festival call (530) 577-7770.
