Kudos: Embassy suites donates to Tallac

The Tahoe Tallac Association was the recipient of a very generous contribution from the new ownership of Embassy Suites Resort. Mr. Tanaka presented donations to several nonprofit organization during a celebration at Embassy. During the ceremony he stated his great appreciation for the South Lake Tahoe community and the hotel he recently purchased. He is committed to making a positive impact on the community.

The funds donated to the association are earmarked for rehabilitation of historic projects at the Tallac Historic Site. Contributions of donations for the rehabilitation of historic structures give the buildings a longer life for continued public enjoyment. Over the past 10 years the Tahoe Tallac Association has received two grants from the Dextra Baldwin Foundation for rehabilitation projects on the Dextra Baldwin and Anita Gibson cabins. The association’s success in raising funds for the Valhalla Boathouse is well known. Besides $212,000 in funds that the association lobbied Congress fro and received, the association raised an additional $260,000 through grants, fund-raising events and the generosity of businesses and individuals in the community for the completion of the Boathouse Theater. Embassy’s contribution will help the association continue in its efforts to help the Forest Service make the historic site’s buildings open and accessible for the housing of interesting and wonderful cultural activities for the public’s enjoyment.
