TRUCKEE, Calif. — Mark your calendars for the 10th annual Downtown Truckee Wine, Walk & Shop slated for Saturday, Oct. 5, noon-4 p.m. Wine lovers, food connoisseurs and dedicated shoppers will once again indulge in delicious food samples paired with fine vintages as they shop and stroll in historic downtown Truckee.
The Downtown Truckee Wine, Walk & Shop has become a flagship event, bringing crowds of locals and out-of-towners to enjoy gourmet food and wine while wandering through boutique shops. For $45 ($40 in advance) per ticket, attendees will receive an anniversary commemorative wine glass, event program and map to participating venues, and five tickets for food tastings (additional food tickets may be purchased for $2 per ticket).
A fine selection of wines and beers from more than 30 different wineries and breweries are available to sample, each placed in participating venues in the heart of downtown Truckee.
During the past nine years, the Downtown Truckee Wine, Walk & Shop event has donated more than $25,000 to local nonprofit organizations. Past partners include Tahoe SAFE Alliance, Girls on the Run, and Sierra Senior Services. An important component of the event is to support area nonprofits.
This year’s Downtown Truckee Wine, Walk & Shop nonprofit partner is the Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe. Founded in 1994 by a group of committed volunteers, the Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe has become a driving force in animal rescue and adoption for the Truckee region.
HSTT is dedicated to saving and improving the lives of pets through adoptions, community spay/neuter services and humane education programs, and was recently voted as the Best Non-Profit in the annual Best of North Tahoe & Truckee awards.
A grand opening of the new HSTT animal shelter will take place Sat., Sept. 28, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. at 10961 Stevens Lane, off of Stockrest Springs Road in Truckee. For more information on The Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe and how to become involved with the organization visit www.hstt.org.
