Wyndham Vacation Ownership hosts dinner

Bread & Broth’s mission is to feed community members who are struggling with hunger. Thanks to the tremendous support of individuals, organizations, churches and businesses from the Lake Tahoe South Shore community, B&B has been providing nutritious meals to anyone who attends our dinners for over 25 years. Our “Adopt A Day of Nourishment” program is just one way our sponsors can support our program and feed up to 130 meals for just $250.

A frequent sponsor for B&B’s meals is Wyndham Vacation Ownership, who hosted the Adopt A Day dinner on March 30. “Wyndham sponsors and volunteers for four Adopt A Days a year,” said Sue Harley, a Wyndham recruiter. “We love being able to give back and support the needs of our community.” Because of the additional generosity of Wyndham, the dinner guests were given toothpaste and shampoo/conditioner samples to supplement their food filled giveaway bags provided by B&B and local stores.

Helping the B&B volunteers with the dinner event, Sue Harley was joined by fellow Wyndham associates Jacob Garcia, quality assurance; Kelly Osiow, administrative assistant and Cassie Hamilton, marketing. This great group of sponsor volunteers worked diligently to give back to those in need and make the evening a great experience for the evening’s diners. B&B would like to thank Wyndham Vacation Ownership and its employees for their efforts to help those in need in our community.

Easter Ham Bingo

Lucky game winners took home 21 hams at the Easter Ham Bingo night sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Tahoe Sierra. Ruth Denno won the final Black Out game and a spiral ham for her holiday table. Additional prizes of Easter baskets, stuffed animals, and chocolate bunnies were awarded to delighted players. Kiwanis sends a big thank you to Grocery Outlet for discounting the cost of the hams and a big ‘thank you’ to Heavenly Village Cinema for donating the popcorn.

Mr. Gene Matteucci’s fourth-grade Sutter’s Fort Project will receive the proceeds from the Easter Ham Bingo event. Because of the generosity of these businesses and sponsorship from Action Watersports/Camp Richardson, Deanna Brothers, D.D.S., Richard Thomson Insurance Brokers, and Jean Dart, and from the participation of friends and neighbors in playing the bingo games, Kiwanis Club of Tahoe Sierra was able to provide additional funding for the students’ field trip. Kiwanis thanks each of you! Mr. Matteucci appeared in 1800’s-style clothing to tell the crowd about the Environmental Living Program at Sutter’s Fort which his Tahoe Valley Elementary School children will soon attend. Ham Bingo takes the help and support of many community members including media coverage by KTHO, KRLT, KOWL, My21 TV, KKFT 99.1 FM, KCMY 102.5 FM, the Tahoe Daily Tribune and the Lake Tahoe News. The club appreciates the talent of George Alm, popular master of ceremonies, Rich Dart, skilled Bingo master, and all the other hard-working Kiwanians and all the bingo players, friends and family who made this event a success.
