6th annual TCF Tahoe Fall Fest a great success

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — On Friday, Oct. 21, over 100 guests gathered at The Chateau for a Black and White Masquerade Bash to support Tahoe's Connection for Families. This was the 6th annual Tahoe Fall Fest, TCF's largest annual fundraiser.

The previous five Tahoe Fall Fests had a Western theme, and this year's co-chairs, Kristen Scheuer and Jessica Nordby, decided it was time to dress up the event and add a new twist. New guests and those who have attended for years embraced wearing masks and black and white attire.

"We are so pleased with how the evening turned out! We wanted our guests to have a blast while raising money for such a valuable cause," shared Scheuer. "We are extremely grateful for all the help and donations folks shared to make this event so successful!"

Table sponsors included the Hardie, Nordby and Scheuer families, and PDL BioPharma. VIP ticket holders were the Karwa/Benediktsson and Watts families.

In addition to awesome sponsor and VIP support, over 100 donations from businesses, families, and individuals were received and were included in the silent and live auctions, raffle, and evening games.

This elegant affair brought many Incline Village guests together, in addition to TCF fans from as far as Southern California, Idaho and New York. Guests enjoyed bidding on live and silent auctions, winning fine wines by playing Joker's Wild, and one lucky winner, Kirk Hardie, won a bottle of scotch as last person standing at the event's black jack table.
