TRUCKEE and#8212; The Rotary Club of Truckee recently announced the theme for the 32nd Annual Cadillac Ball to be held Nov. 13, 2010 at The Ritz-Carlton Highlands, Lake Tahoe. The theme of this yearand#8217;s event is and#8220;Shaken, Not Stirredand#8221; a catch phrase of Ian Flemingand#8217;s fictional British Secret Service agent James Bond, and his preference for how he wished his martini prepared.

The always popular Cadillac Ball is attended by Truckee and North Lake Tahoe residents and visitors. The event features a three-course, gourmet, sit-down dinner, live entertainment and dancing. In addition, there will be an extensive silent and live auction, and grand prize raffle for a 2010 Cadillac SRX. Event tickets are available for $150 each. Only 350 event tickets will be sold, so attendees are encouraged to purchase tickets quickly. Raffle tickets are $100 each with discounts on multiple raffle tickets priced at three for $275 or 10 for $800.

All net proceeds from the Cadillac Ball go to charities in the community and international Rotary projects.
