23rd annual Cadillac Ball tickets on sale

DARIN OLDE, Sierra Sun

Tickets are going fast for the 23rd Annual Cadillac Ball on Saturday Nov. 11, the Truckee Noon Rotary Club’s biggest fund-raiser of the year.

“The event is one of biggest fund-raisers in Truckee,” Rotary Club President Eric Sutton said.

The Ball includes a five-course meal from the Resort at Squaw Creek, The TK Party Band, dancing, entertainment by Shakespearean actor Steve Coniglio, a silent auction and raffle.

This year, the top prize in the raffle is a new Subaru Legacy, donated by Gold Rush Subaru, the Truckee Noon Rotary Club and the Subaru Corporation.

All of the money generated by the event goes to support community projects, such as the Truckee River Legacy Project, a pedestrian trail along the Truckee river.

Last year the event grossed roughly $75,000.

“Revenue from the event comes from the silent auction and raffle ticket sales, not from the dinner,” Chairwoman Gail Alderson said. “We charge only what if costs us to put the dinner on.”

There are 600 dinners sold each year at $100 per person. The event has sold out the last three consecutive years.

Donations from the community include vacation packages, gifts from local merchants artists and business people.

“There is approximately $20,000 in prizes,” Sutton said, “but most people don’t come for the prizes, they come for the party This event has grown with the community and I think that’s why it is successful.”
