Spaghetti dinner to benefit Relay for Life


The Boys and Girls Club of Lake Tahoe on March 13 will host the 2008 Kick-Off Rally for the annual Relay for Life event. The rally will take place in the Boys and Girls Club multipurpose room, 1100 Lyons Ave., previously the Al Tahoe Elementary School.

Members of the Boys and Girls Club Leaders of Tomorrow program will serve a spaghetti dinner, complete with bread, salad and beverage for only $5 per person. Proceeds from the dinner will be donated to the Relay for Life event. The official Relay for Life Rally will be conducted from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Community members are encouraged to attend the event, sign up their team and learn about the ways that they can participate in and support this important event in our community.

The Relay for Life will take place Aug. 2 and 3 at Kahle Community Park. This will be the third year the community has conducted a Relay for Life event. According to Denese Dunt, co-chair of the event, the relay raised $120,000 in 2007. The goal this year is $130,000, with a target of 40 participating teams.

Dunt said: “Relay for Life is about our community celebrating those who have survived cancer, remembering those who have lost the battle with cancer, and fighting back by raising funds to eliminate cancer.” Dunt can be reached via e-mail at

The Leadership Team at the Boys and Girls Club of Lake Tahoe will be busy the next several months participating in planning, supporting and fundraising on behalf of the Relay for Life event.
