Foundation benefit at "Ernie’s Night"


Ernie’s restaurant is supporting the Lake Tahoe Community College Foundation with an American favorite — hamburger, fries and a homemade milkshake. Paul Bruso, owner of Ernie’s, is donating all the food and his staff will donate their time to host an “Ernie’s Night” from 5 to 7:15 p.m. Feb. 26.
