Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with Rotary

Staff Report

The Tahoe Douglas Rotary Club will host its 33rd annual St. Patrick’s Day Wine Tasting and Corned Beef Feed on March 17.

The fund-raiser will take place from 6 to 10 p.m. at Harveys Resort & Casino Convention Center. Everyone is welcome to join in the fun of a traditional Irish dinner featuring corned sirloin beef and cabbage with all the trimmings and sample generous pours of premium California wine from 12 different wineries. Live music for listening and dancing will be provided by Al Moss and the Riptides, one of Lake Tahoe’s favorite party bands. It’s a full evening of St. Patrick’s Day celebration.

The event features a large silent auction with more than 100 accommodation packages to cities across the United States and Puerto Rico. Some of the fabulous destinations featured are Hawaii, San Francisco, Napa Valley, San Diego, La Jolla, Santa Monica, Scottsdale, Denver and Orlando. Other great prizes include a full season ski pass at Heavenly Ski Resort, skis, snowboards, golf packages at Edgewood,Genoa Lakes and Sierra Nevada golf clubs, paintings, sculptures and more than 50 local dining certificates. There also will be raffle prizes featuring local restaurants and retailers.

The St. Patrick’s Day Wine Tasting is the service club’s major fund-raiser to provide for college scholarships and donations to local non profit organizations. Last year the proceeds from the wine tasting allowed the club to donate $10,000 in academic scholarships to 13 graduating seniors at George Whittell High School and another $15,000 to local community programs that benefit everyone at Lake Tahoe.

The ticket donation is $35 per person and reserved tables of 10 are available for $350. Seating is guaranteed but everyone should get their tickets early because the wine tasting is always a sell out. Tickets may be purchased at the Lakeside Inn & Casino cashier cage, Sierra Bookshop at the South “Y’ Center, Colonial Bank on Kingsbury Grade and Selective Accommodations and Hot Springs Spa in Round Hill. They also may be obtained by calling Bill Ottman, ticket chairman, at (775) 588-3121.
