Tahoe Regional Young Professional’s Winter White Carnival heads to Riva Grill
Winter is coming. Celebrate the oncoming season with Tahoe Regional Young Professionals’ event of the year, Winter White Carnival, which takes Riva Grill by storm for the sixth year Saturday, Nov. 19, from 6-10 p.m. With carnival games, raffle prizes, a costume contest and more, it’s a party you won’t want to miss.
“This year we’re changing up our entire format. Anybody that has come before is going to come this year and experience a completely different Winter White.
“This year we’re calling it the Winter White Carnival. When you arrive you get a goodie bag with some tickets for carnival games,” TRYP North Shore director Brandi Brown said.
While the event still features food, music and dancing, the main twist is the addition of classic carnival games like Plinko and ring toss.
“We wanted to shake it up, and we didn’t want to be like every other event. We thought the carnival idea would be fun to do,” Brown said.
Upon arrival, attendees receive a set amount of game tickets — more are available for purchase in advance and at the event. As guests participate in the various carnival games, they are able to win raffle tickets — approximately 40 prizes will be raffled away throughout the course of the evening.
Deck out in white apparel and participate in the costume contest. The more extravagant, the better! TRYP recommends thinking outside the box and utilizing pop culture references, movie characters and connections to Tahoe — be creative!
“Come dressed in white, enter the costume contest and get ready to play games and have a good time.
“It’s meant to be a night of fun, fundraising for a great nonprofit in our community. The more you dress up and the more you get into it, the more fun it’s going to be,” Brown added.
Winter White Carnival is open to anyone over the age of 21. Tickets are $25 for TRYP members, and $50 for non-members.
The event is a fundraiser for SOS Outreach, a nonprofit that promotes self-confidence, leadership skills and positive decision making in underserved youth.
The night continues with an after-party at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, and TRYP is partnering with Uber and Lyft to safely transfer guests to the second location.
