Event has New Orleans theme

People who want to go to New Orleans – and who doesn’t this time of year, what with snow, ice and spells of pea soup fog – and at the same time support students at an innovative, college-preparatory Christian high school, should reserve Feb. 26.

On that night the Sierra Lutheran High School Association will sponsor its third annual dinner dance and silent auction, “An Evening in New Orleans,” with proceeds going toward scholarships for talented and deserving students. This year the event will take place at the Plaza Convention Center, 221 E. 9th Street, Carson City, otherwise known as Rue Bourbon or Bourbon Street.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. with the silent auction, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Dinner and dessert will be served from 6:30 to 8 p.m. and music and dancing will be on tap from 8 to 10 p.m. Dress is semi-formal and tickets cost $36 each. Emerald-level tables for eight can be sponsored for $400 and gold-level tables for eight are $500. Reservations are limited and will be honored as received. Reservations must be received by Feb. 20. For tickets and more information call the school at (775) 782-0060.

Everyone is encourage to wear dancing shoes so they can swing to the tantalizing tunes of the 17-piece Tahoe Dance Band. They also should bring their appetite so they can enjoy Southern hors d’oeuvres as well as entrees such as Creole beef tri-tip and stuffed Cornish game hen and delightfully decadent desserts from the Sugar Plum Bakers in Genoa. Attendees are reminded not to forget their wallet so they can bid on silent auction items such as a stay at cozy Incline Village cabin, fine painting by local artists, and the bountiful gift baskets donated by local merchants, which will also be offered for sale.

In addition to funds raised through this and other means, Sierra Lutheran High School draws support from Bethlehem Lutheran Church, Sierra Lutheran Church and St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, all in Carson City; Hilltop Community Church in Jack’s Valley; and Trinity Lutheran Church and Grace Community Church in Gardnerville.

The school opened in August 2002 and offers quality teaching along with a unique broad-based curriculum, which challenges students to use their God-given gifts and talents to become productive, literate and faithful citizens. Though currently based in Minden, a 47-acre parcel of land in north Douglas County is being considered as the site of a future permanent campus.
