Women’s center gala set for Sept. 12
August 25, 2009
South Lake Tahoe Women’s Center is holding its 10th annual Sunset Gala by the Lake fundraiser on Sept. 12, from 5:30-8:30 p.m. at a lakefront home generously provided by Dr. Sean Degnan.
Attendees will enjoy fine wines, Tahoe’s best hors d’oeuvres, 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 roundtrip Southwest Airlines tickets and one week at a three-bedroom, three-bath condo overlooking the marina in Puerta Vallarta for the silent auction.
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 our 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 our community in the face of over $200,000 in reductions in state funding for its programs.
Tickets are $50 and are tax-deductible. They may be purchased at http://www.sltwc.org/calendar.html at at the center, at 2941 Lake Tahoe Blvd. Donations of hors d’oeuvres and silent auction items are still being accepted, and sponsorship opportunities are available.
