Truckee Lions Club 5th Annual Cabbage Bash set for Saturday

Special to the Sun

Residents are invited to the 5th Annual Cabbage Bash hosted by the Truckee Lions Club on Saturday, Match 14.

Come and support your local chapter of the world's largest service organization for its annual St. Patrick's Day Saturday at 5:30 p.m. at the Community Arts Center on Church Street.

Tickets for the fundraiser are $40 per person. This includes all you can eat corned beef with all the trimmings cooked by master chef Carlo Casagrande, assistant chef Gordon Regert and the Lions crew.

Once again, Irene Brown's secret recipe for Irish Soda Bread will be served. You can enjoy an elegant sit down dinner served by the local Girl Scout Troop 692, who are also preparing a delicious chocolate mint dessert.

The seniors from Sober Grad Night and the Truckee High School Athletic Department will provide setup and cleanup for the event. Your tickets includes an evening of dining, music and a chance to win one of the four $250 cash door prizes, as well as one raffle ticket for the many great raffle items offered by our local merchants and our neighbors in the Reno area.

The no-host bar offers drinks for $1 — yes that's right, $1 drinks.
