INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — The Boys and Girls Club of North Lake Tahoe and Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe recently announced that Wine on the Water ­— a sold-out event for the last five years —­ will be returning to Lake Tahoe on June 12.

The food and wine tasting event on the resort’s beautiful cottage green features various wines from more than 25 vineyards, food tastings from local restaurants, wine-themed games, and a noteworthy silent auction.

All profits from the event — historically more than $50,000 a year ­—go directly to the Boys and Girls Club of North Lake Tahoe to support youth development programs.

“The Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe’s support for kids in our region is incredible. We are so thankful for this event and for all the people who participate in it each year,” said Mindy Carbajal, Chief Executive Officer of the Boys and Girls Club. “Funds raised at Wine on the Water are instrumental in supporting Club programs that impact and change kids’ lives.”

Happening June 12 from 1 to 5 p.m., the event is sponsored by Oliver Luxury Real Estate, Dolan Lexus and Kissino Authentic Italian.

Tickets are now on sale at WineontheWater.org. Prices are $200 for VIP admission and $100 for general admission. Tickets are limited and early purchase is encouraged.

“We are extremely proud of our partnership with the Boys and Girls Club of North Lake Tahoe and of the Wine on the Water event,” said Fred Findlen, General Manager of Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe. “This event has become something North Lake Tahoe looks forward to every year and gives the resort a fantastic opportunity to support an important and meaningful local organization.”
