INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — Lake Tahoe School is gearing for its annual Crystal Ball, slated for 5:30 p.m. Saturday, June 6, at the Chateau at Incline Village.

The gala, themed “Reach for the Stars,” is the private K-8 school’s largest annual fundraiser. The event will feature silent and live auctions that will include a seven-night Costa Rica vacation at a luxury Exclusive Resorts estate, a vacation package at a historic early 20th-century ranch, and VIP tickets to the annual Oscar de la Renta fashion show benefiting the League to Save Lake Tahoe.

“The Crystal Ball is just the right combination of philanthropic opportunity and just plain fun,” said Ruth Glass, head of Lake Tahoe School. “This special night helps provide so many programs that develop our students into the stars that they are.”

The evening will begin with a champagne reception and a silent auction, followed by dinner and a live auction. Guests will also be treated to an after-party featuring a scotch and tequila tasting and hand-rolled cigars.

“We’re anticipating a sold-out venue,” said Marcia Valente, who is co-chairing the event along with her husband Mario, and Catherine and David Markwell. “There’s a lot of excitement in the community about the ball — it’s the black tie event of the year.”

Individual tickets for the gala are $250; sponsorships are available. More information regarding tickets, sponsorship opportunities, and auction items can be found at
