TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. — The Sierra State Parks Foundation invites you to attend a fun-filled, first-time event, on Saturday, Oct. 4, 4-6:30 p.m. on the Tahoe Gal.

A “star-studded” evening blends comedy, elegance and ogling some famous West Shore sites on a paddleboat excursion and cocktail party along Tahoe’s West Shore “Hollywood style.”

Guests will walk the red carpet to board the boat at 4 p.m. sharp, receive a glass of champagne and be treated to a unique tour. This is a signature event fundraiser to restore the historic marine railing system at the south boathouse at Sugar Pine Point State Park. SSPF has secured a $40,000 matching grant for this project and has high hopes of meeting that goal very soon.

The evening includes the satirical humor of your tour guide, long-time resident, Ed Miller, as he reveals never-before-told Tahoe fables, while viewing the magnificent homes and landmarks from the Lake between Tahoe City to the great Hellman- Ehrman Estate at Sugar Pine Point.

The champagne will continue to flow as you enjoy the jazz saxophone of Remmel Wilson and 1950’s Hollywood-inspired appetizers.

The Tahoe Gal will offer a signature martini that night and their cash bar will be available to guests.

“Tahoe Elegant” attire is strongly encouraged, and a “parks experience” live auction will be held.

Ticket price for the evening fundraiser is $75 per person. Space is limited to 75 guests, purchase tickets at http://www.SierraStateParks.org or by calling 530-583-9911.

In addition, SSPF will be drawing the winning raffle ticket for an exclusive dinner party for 24 inside the historic Hellman-Ehrman Mansion, valued at $8,500. Raffle tickets are $100 and a limited number of these tickets are still available.

The mission of the Sierra State Parks Foundation is to provide critically needed financial and professional support to the Lake Tahoe-Truckee region state parks for education, interpretation, restoration, and cultural and environmental preservation, consistent with the mission of California State Parks.
