More than 175 attend Lake Tahoe School Crystal Ball
Lake Tahoe School hosted its annual Crystal Ball on June 6 at the Chateau at Incline Village. More than 175 guests attended the gala, which is the private school’s largest fundraiser.
Themed “Reach for the Stars,” the black-tie event began with a champagne reception overlooking the Chateau’s championship golf course and a silent auction.
Guests were treated to dinner and musical performances by students, followed by a live auction. Immediately after the ball, guests admired eye-catching taxidermy as they mingled at an after-party featuring a scotch and tequila tasting and hand-rolled cigars.
Among the attendees were Gene Pretti, who was honored for his service as the Chairman of the school’s Board of Trustees, and his wife, Alison.
“A fantastic evening was had by all,” said Catherine Markwell, who co-chaired the gala along with her husband, David, and Marcia and Mario Valente. “My favorite partaside from the amazing taxidermywas seeing all the wonderful teachers from the school being honored. We are blessed with a fantastic school and community.”
Auction items included a seven-night Costa Rica vacation at a luxury Exclusive Resorts estate, NBA All-Star Stephen Curry’s autographed game-worn sneakers, and VIP tickets to the annual Oscar de la Renta fashion show benefiting the League to Save Lake Tahoe.
