TAHOE CITY, Calif. and#8212; It takes a village they say, and the Tahoe League for Charity is just part of our local village helping to raise money for local student scholarships and grants for nonprofits. Saturday afternoon, July 10, the League held its annual and#8220;Win for Charityand#8221; fundraiser at the idyllic setting of the exquisite Dollar Point lakefront estate of Linda Nelson Davis. The weather was glorious, the garden was in full bloom and the tables on the lawn were whimsically decorated with sand pails filled with potted plants and pin wheels, which whirled when summer zephyrs blew.

Approximately 130 casually dressed guests, many of them longtime locals, milled about the lakeside lawn perusing the silent auction tables or relaxed at lakeside tables socializing with friends. Personal chef Marlies served up tasty tidbits while live music emanated from the deck. The event raised a tidy sum (organizers were still tallying figures at press time) which the League will award to worthy local causes. During the past 10 years this great organization has raised more than $200,000 for our mountain community.

Some of those attending the winning event were Sandra Bors, Marge and Bob Hartsfield, Sue and Dave Elliot, Bobbie and Bob Dolton, Ann Pridgen and Lisa Dobey of the Truckee Tahoe Community Foundation, Joan and Bob Clark, Karen and Bernd Bremer, Ellen and Hugh McBride, Ellen and Gil Magnani, Marie Sluchak, Nileta and Dick Morton, Ruth and Larry Schnabel, Mary Ellen and Keith Vogt, Joan and Sky Richardson, Patti and Gary Boxeth, Margaret Lewicki, Robin Dworkin, Jenny Birch, Cindy Semmons, Laurie and Chip Larson, event chair Pat Castellucci, Nancy and Gene Mooring, Joyce Grunauer, Jeanne and Don Davis, Pat Lucas, Christina Van Dyck and Shirley and Don Hale.

Tidbits

An exclusive, first time ever opportunity to enjoy cocktails inside the West Shore’s Ehrman Mansion and a sit down twilight dinner on the lawn overlooking the lake will take place Sunday evening, July 18. A display of historic cars, live jazz piano and many guests dressed in period attire will invoke a Gatsby-like atmosphere at the mansion, now a Sierra state park. With funding for California state parks currently in jeopardy, this fundraiser will benefit our area’s state parks. If you would like to attend hurry and call 583-1017. Tickets are still available. New girl in town: Celeste Lynch at Shag Hair Studio next to Zano’s is offering a half price hair cut special through the end of summer for men, women and children to introduce herself as a new hair stylist to Truckee. Call (530) 414-0617 to make an appointment.
