“This event is free to the public, and is designed for people who haven’t done crossfit before,” a news release said. “Staff members will also be participating in this WOD (workout of the day). This is a fundraiser, and as such we ask everyone to help us raise money for this amazing organization. By donating $80, you can possibly save a life through early detection breast cancer screening. By raising $80 via the fundraising page, you will receive a Barbells for Boobs ‘support team’ T-shirt to wear proudly.”

Tahoe Regional Planning Agency Governing Board meets Wednesday, Oct. 28, at 9:30 a.m. in its board room at Tahoe Regional Planning Agency, 128 Market Street, Stateline, Nev.


A new record of more than $50,000 was raised during the recent Boys & Girls Club of Lake Tahoe Golf Tournament at Edgewood Tahoe. All of these proceeds will directly support the year-round operations of the Boys & Girls Club of Lake Tahoe, ensuring a safe place for local youth to learn and grow.

“The club currently has 479 members and the amount of money raised today will help us expand our life enhancing programs and continue to support the youth of our community,” said Jude Wood, Boys & Girls Club of Lake Tahoe’s executive director.

While supporting local youth and having a great time doing it, 120 golfers got their last chance to play Edgewood for the 2015 season. Players enjoyed a gourmet buffet breakfast, beverages throughout the day, on course competitions, dinner, raffle prizes, and the chance to bid on over 30 silent auction packages.

“We really couldn’t have asked for better weather,” said John Marchini, Boys & Girls Club of Lake Tahoe board member and volunteer at this year’s tournament. “It was an all-around great day, the ultimate ‘fun’-draiser!”

The new record was established with the help from Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course and dozens of supporters, businesses and individuals. Edgewood donated the course and food and beverage for the event so all proceeds went directly to the Boys & Girls Club.

The Grand Prize provided by Diamond Resorts International, a week anywhere in the continental U.S., was claimed by Lucy McLaughlin.
