The Animal Coalition of Tahoe has scheduled its third annual Summer Business Fair from 5 to 8 p.m. May 18 in the Horizon Casino Resort Sequoia Ballroom.
The event provides a chance for the community and local hospitality staff to learn about the many summer offerings from Tahoe-area businesses. Front-line hospitality staff and concierges will be admitted free one hour before the general public. Tickets for the general public are $10. Plus, receive $1 off admission for each empty ink jet or laser printer cartridge returned at the fair.
Area restaurants, recreation companies, public agencies and other businesses will give out information about Tahoe’s summer fun. There will be raffles, a silent auction, music and a no-host bar. The theme for decorations will be camping and outdoor recreation at Lake Tahoe.
Businesses can support the event and get exposure to the hundreds of attendees by purchasing a display table or donating an item for the raffle or silent auction. Restaurants that supply food at their tables will receive a complimentary table.
ACT is a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization that holds this annual fundraiser to continue and expand its animal welfare programs, including a spay/ neuter voucher program and the Animal Shelter Renovation Fund. Profits go to help animals in the community with 10 percent going directly to the El Dorado Animal Control shelter.
