The Boys & Girls Club of North Lake Tahoe will host the Ferrari Ravioli Night tonight at the Tahoe Biltmore Lodge and Casino in Crystal Bay to raise funds to support the club's year-round programs.

The event will run from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., and is expected to draw more than 250 guests to thank Dave Ferrari, one of the club's founders and a local community hero, for his many years of crucial work around the North Shore of Lake Tahoe.

Along with playing an integral role in ensuring that Boys & Girls Club of North Lake Tahoe opened its doors to the community 20 years ago, Ferrari has helped in the creation and success of many other community organizations. His contributions to the club and additional community organizations will be celebrated at the event.

"The work that Dave has done for the club and the community has been vast and far reaching. He helped create the foundation on which so many community organizations could stand and have continued to stand on," Mindy Carbajal, the club's chief executive officer, said. "This area would not be what it is today without Dave Ferrari."

Ferrari has offered up his family's secret recipe for a main course of meat and cheese raviolis. Creating the delicious raviolis has long been a Ferrari family tradition and they were even sold at the Ferrari Food Shop in downtown Reno in the 1950s.

In order to ensure the creation of the perfect Ferrari raviolis, Ferrari lead two production days at the Boys & Girls Club of North Lake Tahoe's Kings Beach Site which resulted in the creation of more than 600 dozen Ferrari raviolis for guests to enjoy tonight.
