Raffle planned for corned beef feed
The Tahoe Douglas Rotary Club is busy preparing for its 34th annual St. Patrick’s Day Wine Tasting and Corned Beef Feed. Doors for the Irish party will open at 6 p.m. at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe Special Events Center. The fund-raiser features an incredible silent auction with great products from local retailers and gift certificates from local restaurants.
Admission is $40 per person and includes wine tasting and a complete Irish buffet dinner. Tickets are available from any Tahoe Douglas Rotary member and at the Lakeside Inn & Casino cashier cage, Paradise Timeshare on U.S. Highway 50 in South Lake Tahoe, Colonial Bank on Kingsbury Grade, Wells Fargo Bank on U.S. Highway 50 in Stateline, Selective Accommodations and Hot Springs Spas in Round Hill or by calling Chris Probert, ticket chairman, at (775) 588-2018.
The St. Patrick’s Day Wine Tasting is the Rotary Club’s major source of funds to provide for college scholarships and donations to local nonprofit organization. Last year, proceeds from the event allowed the service club to donate $10,000 in academic scholarships to 12 local high school seniors and another $25,000 to community programs that benefit everyone at Lake Tahoe. Additionally, with thousands of dollars in matching funds from Rotary International the club helps support people around the world, including victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attack.
Any individual or business that makes a donation valued at $100 or more will receive two complimentary VIP passes to the event worth $80. All donors will be listed in the program and on the Web site http://www.tahoe-rotary.com. Print ads for the event will direct wine tasting guests to visit the Web site in advance of the auction to get familiar with the donated items. To make a donation and for more information call Michael Bluto at (7750 588-2697.
