Feet will blaze at annual ball
It’s heating up again as the Lake Valley Firefighter’s Association gets ready to present its 39th annual Firefighter’s Ball beginning at 8 p.m. March 2 at Harveys Resort & Casino Emerald Bay Ball Room. Must be 21 years of age to attend.
Tickets are $15 if purchased in advance and will be $20 at the door. They are available at Lake Valley Fire Stations No. 5, 6, and 7, Alpen Sierra Coffee Co., Lira’s Market, Pazzaz, Raley’s at the “Y” and Crescent V Center and Rude Brothers Bagel House.
The event will include $1 draft beers, silent auction, raffle prizes and Art Thomas, former Oakland Raider, sports artifacts. Each ticket includes a two-for-one entree special to be used the night of the ball at Beacon, Chevy’s, Edgewood, Fresh Ketch, Greenhouse, Mama’s Red Tomato, McP’s Irish Pub, Midnight Mine, Passaretti’s, Rockwater Tavern & Steakhouse and Tudor Pub and Dory’s Oar
Headlining this hot affair will be South Shore’s own Cool Black Kettle. With a unique combination of rock and cool sounds, CBK promises to get down and heat things up as they have for the past few years in and around Northern Nevada and California. Between the band will be Jeff Kaufer from Music Magic, rockin’ the house and giving away free stuff. Among the prizes will be 2001-2002 season ski passes from Heavenly, Kirkwood and Sierra-at-Tahoe ski resort. The grand prize will be accommodations and airfare for two to Hawaii compliments of Edelweiss Travel and the Firefighter’s Association.
The fund-raiser will provide much needed revenue to the Lake Valley Firefighter’s Association for the purchase of training aids, rescue and firefighting equipment and public education programs. In line for purchase this year is some high tech, state-of-the-art extrication equipment and emergency medical equipment. The association also will be starting a scholarship program for a local high school student pursuing a fire fighting career. A portion of these funds go to local charities and continuing education for the group of volunteers who play an important role in keeping the Tahoe Basin a safe place to live, visit and enjoy.
