Taste of Tahoe to support fight against cancer

The inaugural Taste of Tahoe, coordinated to support the fight against cancer, support the community and the success of local restaurants and businesses, kicks off May 9 to 15 at Edgewood Tahoe’s Brooks Bar.

Brooks Bar will donate 10 percent of sales throughout the week to the South Lake Tahoe Relay for Life and the American Cancer Society.

Taste of Tahoe will feature one local restaurant each week for the weeks leading up to South Lake Tahoe Relay for Life on August 7. The focus is to raise money for the fight against cancer while having great food, drinks, entertainment at local restaurants. Each restaurant sponsor is making a donation to the American Cancer Society for the week it is featured.

About 30 local businesses are sponsoring Taste of Tahoe to strengthen the community’s contribution to Relay for Life and the American Cancer Society. Taste of Tahoe is a concept developed by a few local business owners to increase South Lake Tahoe’s involvement and contributions to the local Relay for Life event.

“We hope that everyone will grab his or her friends, family, coworkers and neighbors to get out of the house and enjoy a great time while supporting an even greater cause,” says Matt Wiggins, owner of Corporate Nevada. “If you’re going to eat anyway, why not also support the health and vitality of our community alongside others who care too?”

Taste of Tahoe is meant to be a win-win for everyone who participates.

“Almost everyone knows someone who has been impacted by cancer, so it’s a cause that’s close to many of us,” said Erik Watada, State Farm Agency owner. “But we also think South Lake Tahoe benefits from activities like the Taste of Tahoe weeks and the Relay for Life event that bring us together again as a true community.”
