Sunset Soirée at Lake Tahoe’s Tallac Historic Site
If you go ...
What: Sunset Soirée
When: 6-9 p.m., Saturday, July 27
Where: Pope Estate - Tallac Historic Site (1 Heritage Way South Lake Tahoe, Calif.)
Calling all flappers and fast-talking fellas: you’re invited to a swanky soirée in the scenic Pope Estate at the Tallac Historic Site this Saturday.
The Tahoe Heritage Foundation is throwing its inaugural Sunset Soirée — an evening of 1920s glitz and glamour all right on the shore of Lake Tahoe. The event will feature food, dancing, nostalgic games and an opportunity to dress up in your finest ’20s cocktail getup.
Event organizers opted to go with soirée, rather than gala, for one reason: community.
“While a gala is ‘a social occasion with special entertainments or performances,’ a soirée is ‘an evening party or gathering, typically in a private house, for conversation or music,’” states a letter from Tahoe Heritage Foundation leadership.
“When we’re here together at this historic site Soirée, we’re not just having a big party; we’re at home together in our community.”
The event is a fundraiser for the Tahoe Heritage Foundation, which supports preservation, restoration and education in the Tahoe Basin. Every dollar raised Saturday evening will go to that mission.
Board members will be wearing name-tags and explaining their connection to the Tallac Historic Site. It’s hard to beat a fun evening at one of Tahoe’s most beautiful sites. The fact it benefits a good cause just makes it that much better.
Tickets are $55 and available online at bit.ly/SunsetSoireeTicks. Don’t wait if you’re wanting to attend — there’s only a limited number of tickets available. Tickets include music, bubbly and a buffet of local delights.
