Women’s center gala set for Sept. 12
August 29, 2009
South Lake Tahoe Women’s Center is holding its 10th annual Sunset Gala by the Lake fundraiser on Sept. 12, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at a lakefront home provided by Dr. Sean Degnan.
Attendees will enjoy fine wines, appetizers, desserts, classical guitar and Polynesian dancing.
A silent auction will feature products, services and art donated by local businesses and individuals.
The auction will also feature four round-trip Southwest Airlines tickets and one week at a three-bedroom, three-bath condo overlooking the marina in Puerta Vallarta.
The event is sponsored by: Harrah’s and Harveys Lake Tahoe, Barton Health, Wells Fargo Bank, El Dorado Savings, Merrill Lynch, Coldwell Banker Select Real Estate, South Lake Tahoe Optimist Club, South Tahoe Refuse Company, CrossFit Lake Tahoe, Dr. Patricia Ferraro, Dr. Thomas and Deana Jarrett, Greg and Jean Bergner, and an anonymous donor.
Last year, South Lake Tahoe Women’s Center served 2,303 victims of abuse in the community – one in every three clients was a child. The fundraiser will help the center continue offering services and support to adult and child survivors of violence in the community in the face of more than $200,000 in reductions in state funding for its programs.
