TAHOE CITY, Calif. — On Nov. 10, Tahoe League for Charity held its annual Grant Award luncheon at the Sunnyside Lodge and Restaurant. In all, $4,000 was distributed to eight grant recipients, awarding each with $500.00.

Awards were granted to Heather Segale, Sustainability Coordinator and Science Liaison for UC Davis and director of the Tahoe Environmental Research Center; Brenda and Marila Ramirez, both representing Big Brothers and Big Sisters of North Lake Tahoe; Sam Loudon, representing the Wylie Animal Rescue Foundation of Tahoe; Stephanie Nistler, executive director of the Truckee Tahoe Humane Society; Eileen Hacker, representing the AAUW Tech Trek program providing middle school girls with the opportunity to attend math and science camps at Stanford and UC Davis; Heidi Allstead, executive director for Project MANA, a nonprofit providing weekly food distributions to homebound community members; Mary Anderson, representing Sierra Senior Services, providing services to aid seniors in our community; and Anne Greenwood and Kay Fox, representing Kings Beach Library.

Each representative spoke in behalf of her nonprofit organization, explaining its mission, projected endeavors and current achievements.

TLC has awarded over $300,000 to the community since its founding in 1999. Each year it is our pleasure to award other non-profits and assist them with their financial needs. 

The Tahoe League for Charity annual holiday luncheon will be held at Jake’s on the Lake in Tahoe City on Monday, Dec. 8. It is open to all members and their guests. For luncheon inquiries and reservations call 530-583-8938.
