Kudos & Kindness

A big heartfelt thank-you to the Boys & Girls Club of Lake Tahoe for their thrilling ’50s sock hop. This mammoth production with more than 50 of our children made me both laugh and cry.

Special kudos for director and choreographer, Ashleigh Petrell, (former Idol contestant, soon off to Broadway); club director Karen Houser; and of course Jerry, the ever-smiling “Club Custodo.” We appreciate so much all you do every day for our children.

Community, please support this very special club, especially with their occasional fundraising events. Hats off, you all deserve a standing ovation.

Dental supplies are appreciated

The South Lake Tahoe Women’s Center would like to thank Dr. Park’s Dental Office for their generous donations of children’s toothbrushes, adults’ toothbrushes, and tubes of toothpaste. For an individual struggling through the hardships of an abusive relationship, every item makes a difference.

Improving the emotional, social and economic needs of women and families in our community by assisting in every way we can to help them live healthier, violence-free lives, would not be possible without the support of caring individuals and businesses like Dr. Park’s dental office.

South Tahoe came through for family

This letter is long overdue. The Silveira family would like to thank the Elks Club and the entire community for its support when our daughter, Faith, was stricken with meningitis in July 2005.

We would like to express our deepest gratitude to X-Ray Olsen (this guy can cook) and other Elks for sponsoring a spaghetti dinner in January to help raise funds to keep us going and cover medical expenses when we really needed it. We also thank KRLT radio for all the air time they provided to promote the spaghetti dinner fundraiser.

Our family would also like to thank not only our friends, but the people of the community whom we didn’t even know who showed up to show their support for us as well. When someone asks me how I can live in such a small town, I point to this and say, “You can’t get this kind of love in the big city.”

Faith is home and is slowly recovering. She is starting to speak and slowly regaining mobility in her limbs. Again, thank you all for everything.

Reversing roles made event fun

The South Lake Tahoe Women’s Center would like to send a heartfelt thank-you to Freshies Restaurant for sponsoring a “Trading Places” fundraiser on April 25 to raise awareness and money for the Women’s Center’s child abuse, sexual assault, domestic violence, and basic needs programs.

This fun event, in which the wait staff and cooks switched places, was a great success thanks to the generosity of Freshies and the many people who purchased meals at the restaurant.

The ongoing support from individuals and businesses, such as Freshies Restaurant, enables the Women’s Center to provide assistance to community members in need of information, advocacy, counseling, emergency shelter and many other services.
