Tickets Going Fast for Wine Tasting

Staff reports

Touted as the best Irish party of the year, the Tahoe-Douglas Rotary Club’s 33rd annual St. Patrick’s Day Wine Tasting and Corned Beef Feed is March 17. The event will take place from 6 to 11 p.m. at Harveys Resort & Casino Convention Center.

Everyone can join in the fun of a traditional Irish dinner featuring corned sirloin of beef and cabbage with all the trimmings. They will have an opportunity to sample generous pours of premium California wine from 12 different wineries and dance to live music by A Moss and the Riptides. It’s an evening full of St. Patrick’s Day celebration.

The highlight of the fund-raiser is a large silent auction with more than 100 accommodation packages to cities across the United States. Some of the fabulous destinations featured are Hawaii, San Francisco, San Diego, La Jolla, Scottsdale, Denver, New York, Miami, Ft. Lauderdale and Orlando. Other great prizes include a full season ski pass at Heavenly Ski Resort and Sierra-at-Tahoe, skis, snowboards, paintings, sculptures, more than 50 local dining certificates and golf packages at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course, Genoa Lakes and Sierra Nevada. There also will be raffle prizes featuring local restaurants and retailers.

Proceeds from last year’s St. Patrick’s Day Wine Tasting allowed the Tahoe-Douglas Rotary Club to donate $10,000 in college scholarships to 13 graduating high school seniors and another $15,000 to local community programs that benefit everyone at Lake Tahoe.

The ticket donation is $35 each and reserved tables of 10 are available for $350. Seating is guaranteed but very few tickets remain. The wine tasting is always a sell-out, so act fast. Tickets may be purchased at the Lakeside Inn & Casino cashier cage, Wells Fargo Bank at Stateline, Colonial Bank on Kingsbury Grade, Selective Accommodations and Hot Spring Spas in Round Hill and by calling ticket chairman Bill Ottman at (530) 541-3121.
