Boys & Girls Club of North Lake Tahoe names Northstar ‘Partner of the Year’

Special to the Sun

Boys & Girls Club of North Lake Tahoe named Northstar California Resort Echo “Partner of the Year.”

Through cash and in-kind donations of more than $75,000, the resort worked with the Boys & Girls Club to support thousands of youth and teens.

“We are truly grateful for the continued support and partnership with Northstar California Resort Echo,” said Mindy Carbajal, executive director for BGCNLT “We’re thrilled that the collaborative effort has helped to inspire kids throughout our community.”

BGCNLT provides assistance and enrichment to youth and teens year-round.

In the Club’s Powder Hounds ski program, members were able to ski and ride Northstar as well as receive instruction and rental equipment.

“My son had snowboarded a few times before Powder Hounds, but really started loving it after spending time with the Northstar instructors each Sunday,” said Maria Sandoval, Club parent.

During summer, Northstar provided transportation for more than 300 youth to and from nine field trips, including visits to the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival and Wild Island Water Park.

“It’s a great honor to help one of our community’s most important foundations achieve their goals of creating opportunity for so many local kids,” said Bill Rock, chief operating officer and senior vice president of Northstar California Resort. “The positive impact that the Club provides for youth is simply immeasurable.”


The annual Kids First Fundraising Breakfast is scheduled for Saturday, May 10, 10-11:30 a.m. at the Tahoe Truckee Regional Airport, during which BGCNLT will recognize its partnership with Northstar California Resort Echo.

Community members and supporters will also attend the event in order to further the Club’s achievements.

Those interested in attending are invited to R.S.V.P. by calling the Club at 530-546-4324, or by emailing Ali Stoner, annual gifts coordinator for BGCNLT, at
