Thank you to all who contributed to the success of the “Thank You, Firefighters Benefit Dance” Aug. 9 at the Horizon Resort Casino Sequoia Ballroom. More than $4,200 was donated to the South Lake Tahoe Fireman’s Association to honor their efforts saving lives and property during the Angora fire.
In addition to the 17-piece Tahoe Dance Band and Marcia Sarosik’s “Lake Tahoe Shining Stars,” others who volunteered were Judy and Paul Jensen, co-chairs of the silent auction, and committee members Pam Massman, Jonquil Peterson, Ken Sands and Don Welton. Ruth Smith, Phylluis Iannetta and Marilyn Beeler helped with admissions.
