Cosby shows will benefit charities

Harveys Casino Resort recently announced that the proceeds from four Bill Cosby shows on June 5 and 6 would be donated to the Boys and Girls Club of Lake Tahoe.

In making the announcement, Kevin Servatius, senior vice president and general manager of Harveys, stated, “Harveys has long supported the Boys and Girls Club of Lake Tahoe because it is a great organization that serves the children of our community. It is a safe, positive place for our kids.”

The Boys and Girls Club of Lake Tahoe services more than 100 children each school day at the South Tahoe Middle School with programs for youths from ages 6 to 18. Additionally, the club has run successful summer programs for the past five seasons.

Dr. Mark Zacovic, the president of the Board of Directors of the Boys and Girls Club, was notified Tuesday of Bill Cosby’s and Harveys’ decision. Zacovic said, “The Boys and Girls Club would like to thank Bill Cosby for his constant support of programs that help children, and Harveys for their continuing support of the community and the Boys and Girls Club. Lastly, we would like to thank all the great people who have and will buy tickets for the shows as they make this all possible. These funds will go a long way to make this community a better and safer place for our children.”

The proceeds from this year’s four shows will amount to $60,000, with the other $30,000 going to Glide Memorial Church and the Pastor Cecil Williams in San Francisco, a charity which Bill Cosby has supported for many years.

Children who are interested in joining the club or would like to know more details, should contact Steve Conway, Boys and Girls Club executive director, at (530) 542-0838.

Tickets for the shows are still available through Harveys Box Office at (702) 588-2411. Shows will be in Harveys Convention Center on June 5 and 6 at 7 and 10:30 p.m. Tickets are $39.50.
