HERO helps Bread & Broth

Harrah’s/Harveys’ HERO members who volunteered at Bread & Broth’s dinner on April 28, came prepared to work hard and make sure that the evening’s diners were warmly welcomed, served heaping portions of barbecue roasted chicken and given “bags of food” and “leftovers to go” before they left.

HERO is an employee based program at Caesars Casinos which encourages employees to participate in charitable events within their community. Fortunately for Bread & Broth, the Harrah’s/Harveys’ HERO members choose to host a B&B’s “Adopt a Day of Nourishment” sponsorship. “It was so much fun. We would all do it again,” said Stephanie Bartholomew, a Harrah’s/Harveys’ games supervisor.

In addition to Stephanie, the fun and friendly HEROs volunteers included Cindy Walker, Steve Campbell, Randy Sumner and Jackie Andrews. They particularly enjoyed working the serving line and had smiles for the guests. Bread & Broth would like to thank and compliment Caesars for encouraging their employees to make a positive impact and help meet the needs of their community by participating in charitable events, such as feeding the less fortunate through B&B’s meal program.

Thanks to ice arena, Van Oleson for supporting special needs students

I’d like to thank the South Lake Tahoe Ice Arena, especially Van Oleson for hosting my special education classroom from South Tahoe Middle School on April 22. Our classroom of students with Special Needs had the opportunity to skate during a quiet time; before it was opened to the public. Many of our students had never been on ice skates before. We discovered some hidden talents in our exceptional children. Kristin Oleson is a Buddy in our classroom and she was instrumental in making this special event happen.

Thank you again, Van Oleson, for supporting our classroom from South Tahoe Middle School. How lucky we are to have the support of fine businesses like yours in our community.
