Kudos & Kindness: Thank you for supporting McKenzie

Thank you for supporting McKenzie

We would like to thank everyone in South Lake Tahoe for donating and coming out to an evening for McKenzie Rose Eckman.

The fundraiser to help her fight acute lymphoblastic leukemia was held on March 1 at the American Legion Hall. It was a success way beyond anything we could have imagined.

This community is one big giant heart, the local merchants gave endlessly to the point where we almost had too many items to auction off and we also had a ton of excellent door prizes.

Jessica Biagini at Lira’s was able to get Lira’s to donate the bulk of appetizers. We also had food donated from Danny at Lake Taco, as well as several people who brought potluck items.

A special thank you to Casey Rise, who ran the silent auction, as well as some of her classmates drove up from Reno to assist with the events that evening.

Our efforts that night alone brought in $18,141, with countless other donations deposited into the McKenzie Rose Eckman account at El Dorado Savings, which is still accepting deposits

This would not have been possible without this entire community coming together.

Thank you.

All the coworkers at Meek’s Tahoe/Meyers
