Cheers for Charity spring success at Petra
Special to the Sun
TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. — Once again this spring, Petra Wine Bar and Shoppe in the Northstar Village opened its doors to local not-for-profit organizations.
Cheers for Charity is an event concept created by Kali Kopley, one of the owners of Uncorked and Petra. The concept utilized Petra’s kitchen, wines and unique space during the shoulder season to give back to the community. Petra hosted the organizations’ guests for an evening of dinner and wine tasting for the all-inclusive price of $40 per person, with 50 percent of the proceeds and 10 percent of the wine bottle sales from that evening are given back to the support the community.
Petra’s signature dishes were served alongside a Chardonnay from the Loire Valley of France and a Pinot Noir from Willamette Valley, Ore. to create wonderful dining experience. After dinner everyone gathered on the patio fire pit for s’mores, and to celebrate a casual evening of fundraising.
This spring The Tahoe City Rotary Club, North Lake Tahoe Truckee Leadership, Tahoe Youth Ballet, and Tahoe City Downtown Association benefited from a fun evening of dining and wine pairing at Petra.
Christin Hanna of Tahoe Youth Ballet said, “Petra’s intimate, elegant setting hosted a wonderful evening that brought together our organization’s integral supporters over a delicious food and wine pairing. Tahoe Youth Ballet is truly grateful for their support.”

There is such a thing as loving a place to death, and with the growing masses visiting Lake Tahoe every year, overtourism is a top issue.
