Fundraiser tonight benefits schools

A fundraiser for the Zephyr Cove Elementary and Kingsbury Middle schools in Douglas County to raise money is slated for tonight.

The event includes dinner, silent and live auctions, door prizes, raffles, live entertainment and dancing. In its 24th year, the Annual Spring Auction Fundraiser raised $38,000 last year.

The money helped fund needs for the elementary school including janitorial/cleaning equipment, library enhancements, sound system for the multi-purpose room and indoor games for weather related indoor recess.

Money also helped Kingsbury Middle School with purchasing physical education equipment, art supplies, vacuum system science lab equipment, supplies for the health nurse and field trips and assemblies.

The event begins tonight at 6:30 p.m. and is expected to last until 11:30 p.m. at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe. Dress is semi-formal and tickets are $45 at the door.
