Tahoe Baikal Institute to host annual Friendraiser Gala

Tahoe Baikal Institute will host its annual Friendraiser Gala on Friday, June 29, at the top of the tram at Heavenly Mountain Resort.

“This is a classic Tahoe gala event that features good food, great music and dancing, an informative presentation, and highlights our TBI environmental exchange participants from Russia, Mongolia and the U.S.,” Sarah Buck, program director of TBI, stated in a press release.

The 16 international participants of the 22nd Summer Environmental Exchange, representing undergraduate and post-graduate university research programs and professions in their respective countries, will headline the evening, which includes a tram ride to Lake View Lodge at the top of Heavenly and the presentation of the 2012 Dwight Steele Award, Lake Tahoe’s top environmental prize.

Participants, who are selected in a competitive process, spend four weeks at Lake Tahoe doing scientific research, policy and cultural activities, then spend a week in the Mongolian watershed before working for four weeks at Lake Baikal, the world’s largest lake located in Siberia, Russia.

Tickets to the event cost $65 and include the tram ride to the Lake View Lodge. Proceeds will benefit TBI. For ticket information, contact 530-542-5599 or gala@tahoebaikal.org or visit http://www.tahoebaikal.org.
