Hard Rock Hotel & Casino donates $29,310 to Tahoe Fund
STATELINE — On Thursday, Jan. 14, the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Lake Tahoe presented the Tahoe Fund with a donation of $29,310 to help restore and improve the Tahoe environment in front of the iconic guitar sculpture outside of Lake Tahoe’s newest hotel and casino. The donation came from $1 donations from hotel stays during the resort’s first season of operation through a program called Green Bucks.
“Hard Rock Lake Tahoe is a great addition to our community,” said Tim Cashman, chair of the Tahoe Fund Board. “It is terrific to have their support in our efforts to preserve this wonderful mountain environment. We are so thankful they chose to join more than 20 other businesses in the region who are adding dollar donations to their guests’ bills to support Tahoe.”
Green Bucks is a partner program between the Tahoe Fund and the Truckee River Watershed Council that aims to harness the passion of visitors and residents to help care for Lake Tahoe’s extraordinary environment. Through Green Bucks, local businesses allow guests to add donations to lift tickets, hotel rooms, golf rounds and meals.
“It is a real pleasure to present this check to the Tahoe Fund,” said Jon Park, who, together with his brother David, owns the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Lake Tahoe. “Our family has called this area home for generations. It is important to us to continue to contribute to the community in a positive way, and this includes protecting its natural environment.”
Founded in 2010, the Tahoe Fund inspires the private community to support environmental projects that will improve lake clarity, enhance recreation and inspire environmental stewardship in the Lake Tahoe Basin. Tahoe Fund donors have provided funding for more than a dozen projects including watershed restoration, new bike paths, state park improvements, and environmental education initiatives.
The Tahoe Fund welcomes donations of any size to help sustain the organization and the extraordinary natural environment of the Lake Tahoe Basin. Information about the Green Bucks program and the Tahoe Fund is available at http://www.tahoefund.org or by calling 775-298-0035.
