Sugar Bowl Resort will kick off its annual lakefront dining series at Donner Summit’s Lake Mary on July 18.

The Lake Mary Cabin Dinner Series will hold 13 outdoor dinners on the shores of private Lake Mary, with a portion of each evening’s proceeds benefiting 13 local nonprofits, including the Truckee Donner Land Trust, Sierra Avalanche Center and the Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe.

Chef Alan Davis serves his celebrated French-inspired California cuisine paired with a selection of wines, and featuring homemade desserts. The menu includes entrees like Dungeness Crab Linguini, Grilled Spice Rubbed Quail and Pan Seared Alaskan Halibut. Menu prices range from $24 to $36 for main dishes and $7 to $12 for appetizers, including Duck Prisciutto Tart, Pan Seared Diver Scallops, soups and salads.

Dinners are open to the public 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Reservations are highly recommended. Lake Mary is located next to Sugar Bowl Resort, and offers a secluded setting and high-alpine vistas.
