Heavenly Ski Patrol sponsors fund-raiser
Heavenly Ski Patrol will sponsor a fund-raiser to benefit the Amber Bauer Medical Fund and Special Olympics of South Lake Tahoe on Feb. 28.
The event will take place from 7 p.m. to midnight at the Horizon Casino Resort Sequoia Ballroom. Admission is $10 in advance and $15 at the door and includes three door prize tickets. Tickets may be purchased in advance at the Heavenly Ski Patrol First Aid Station at the foot of the Tram in California and at the Stagecoach bar in Nevada.
Entertainment will be provided by The Trey Stone Band and snacks will be supplied by the Horizon Casino Resort. Beer and wine as well as soft drinks and water will be supplied by local distributors.
Everyone is invited and must show ID to prove they are 21 years of age and over for beer and wine. Winners of door prizes must be present, but it is not necessary to be present for the grand prize.
The grand prize is a full season pass at Heavenly Ski Resort. Thousands of dollars in door prizes such as skis, boots, binding, poles and hotel and casino packages including shows, dinners and room accommodations have been donated by local and international sponsors.
The primary beneficiary Amber Bauer is a 25-year-old resident of South Lake Tahoe. She has a disease called diffused systemic sclerederma, which is an auto immune deficiency disease. She was diagnosed last year and is extremely grateful for the involvement of the Heavenly Ski Patrol. She begins intense treatment in Washington state in March.
The other beneficiary is the Special Olympics, South Lake Tahoe chapter. They were greatly affected by the patrol’s donation last year, so they were chosen to be included again this year. As always, this is to also help with the Heavenly Ski Patrol’s continuing hill safety training and education program.
