The Tahoe Douglas Rotary Club is busy preparing for the 37th annual St. Patrick’s Day Wine Tasting and Corned Beef Feed. The best Irish party of the year will take place March 18 at Harrah’s Convention Center. Guests will enjoy a complete Irish buffet dinner in addition to premium California wine from 12 different wineries. This lively fund-raiser features an incredible silent auction with more than 200 donated items including great products from local retailers and gift certificates from all the best restaurants.

“We are lucky to live in such a beautiful place with so many generous citizens. The community really supports our fund-raising efforts. Special thanks to Embassy Suites Lake Tahoe Resort for providing nearly 100 accommodation packages to fabulous hotels across the United States. Any individual or business that makes a donation valued at $200 or more will receive two complimentary VIP passes to the event worth $90. All donors are listed in the program and on our Web site: Your customers will notice and admire your contribution,” said Conrad Buedel, Tahoe Douglas Rotary member.

The St. Patrick’s Day Wine Tasting is the service club’s major source of funds to provide for college scholarships and donations to local nonprofit organizations. Last year, the proceeds from the Wine Tasting allowed the club to donate $12,000 in academic scholarships to eight local high school seniors and another $31,500 to community programs that benefit everyone at Lake Tahoe. The ticket donation is $45 each and reserved tables of 10 are available for $450. People are encouraged to secure their tickets early because this excellent party is always a sell out.

The Tahoe Douglas Rotary Club is very grateful to the entire Lake Tahoe community for their kind support.

Anyone who would like to make a donation may call Clay Warnock at (775) 588-1884.
