TRUCKEE, Calif. — Rubicon Pizza, in the Village at Northstar California, selected the Tahoe Truckee School of Music as its 2015 nonprofit of the year.

Throughout the year, Rubicon diners were given the option to “round up” their dinner bill, with the funds going directly to the Tahoe Truckee School of Music.

The culmination of the fundraising efforts was a recent all-you-can-eat event at Rubicon, where the staff donated its evening shift to provide an incredible pizza, pasta and salad bar dinner, along with live music by Joaquin Fioresi and raffle prizes.

“My heartfelt thanks goes out to the Villaman family, GM Carissa Savitsky and the entire staff at Rubicon Pizza for the tremendous support they gave us all year long,” said Ben Martin, director of the Tahoe Truckee School of Music. “Their $12,000 contribution allows us to provide a music education for students who would have otherwise had none.”

The nonprofit Tahoe Truckee School of Music has a mission of providing a music education as well as performing and recording opportunities for everyone in our community regardless of their financial resources. They have schools in Truckee and Tahoe City and have been serving the community since 2009.
