Soroptimists International of Tahoe Sierra will host its annual fundraising event, Elegant Evening Saturday at Harrah’s Tahoe.

The evening includes a seated multiple-course dinner, silent and live auctions, raffles, music and dancing. Party-goers, dressed in their finest evening wear, will be treated to an extravagant desert bar, a special cocktail hour with wine and vodka tastings, and music by The Soul Experience, featuring Trey Stone.

“Because the dessert bar has been displayed so beautifully, we’ve had people hit that during cocktail hour,” event organizer Lisa Huard said.

With more than $65,000 in donations, live auction items include vacation rentals in various parts of the world, a paddleboard and an entire orthodontic procedure donated by Rick Parigini Orthodontics.

Businesses or groups may purchase tables of 10 for the evening at no additional charge and receive advertisement before, during and after the event.

All money raised during the evening benefits education and service opportunities for women and children in the entire California and Nevada South Lake Tahoe community.
