Kiwanis Oktoberfest benefits families

The Kiwanis Club of Tahoe Sierra raised a stein or two, and approximately $15,000, during its fifth annual Oktoberfest celebration last fall. The money will help children in the community who lost homes in the Angora fire.

KRLT/KOWL, the Entertainer, Tahoe Mountain News, Rip N Willies Ski Shop, the Tahoe Daily Tribune, South Shore Motors, Taylor Creek Auctions and Nixon’s Heating and Plumbing sponsored Oktoberfest.

“If you lost your home in the Angora fire and need some assistance in replacing items such as sports equipment, instruments and books, or maybe you just need help with paying for league sports registration, dance classes or other uncovered costs related to your children, contact us,” said Kiwanis member Angie Keil.

“We may be able to assist you with $100 to $200 for each child, birth through college, depending on the number of responses we receive.”

Submit your name, children’s names, address, contact number and your “wish list” to the Kiwanis Club of Tahoe Sierra, P.O. Box 13666, South Lake Tahoe, CA 96151, by Feb. 29. Information is confidential.

For more information, call Angie Keil at (530) 573-0298 or Phil Blowney at (530) 541-2722.
