Kudos & Kindness
Thanks to great support by the South Lake Tahoe community, our annual event was a great success. Thank you to local ski and snowboard shops, MontBleu Resort, the many businesses that helped promote our event and all the winter sports enthusiasts who came to our event.
The Heavenly Ski & Snowboard Foundation raised much-needed funds that will facilitate a top-notch, structured coaching program for the children of Lake Tahoe and Western Nevada.
The annual HSSF ski swap was a win-win. Local residents got excellent bargains on their winter gear, and the community retained a beneficial educational and sports activity program for our developing star athletes. Programs such as these help guide our future leaders and provide wholesome educational opportunities.
The HSSF is deeply grateful for the community’s continuing support. Thank you.

Once again, our “Holiday Elves” have outdone themselves. More than 500 handmade items were donated to the Caps for Kids program for Christmas Cheer to distribute. This year’s warm bounty included hats, scarves, booties, handwarmers, slippers, blankets, mittens, doll hats and a bacclava. They were made by people from all around the Tahoe Basin, up and down California, Arizona and Minnesota.
Thank you to Mary Ann, Willa, Raelene, Mardell, Lee, Kylie, Sue, Virginia, Anne, Janice, Jacque, Tasha, Kristal, Penny, Lauren, Toni, Darlene, Cindy, Penny-Quilting Tahoe, Tahoe Douglas Senior Center, Sierra Pine Needles and the handful of anonymous elves who dash in and out without leaving their names. Your generosity and wonderful talents always spread that warm-and-fuzzy holiday spirit year round throughout our South Lake Tahoe community.

Santa Paws 2007 participants and donors weathered unusually cold temperatures to support the annual benefit. It makes us all the more grateful for the $1,100 net raised to help local animals in need.
Big barks for the generosity of American Legion Post 795, Jackie Wright Mobile Grooming and quilter Chris Lancellotti. Wags and purrs to our friends Alicia, James, Jasmine, Jeremiah, Makala, Savannah and Zeth, who helped manage the time and keep pets and people in good spirits. See you next year.
