TRUCKEE, Calif. — Soroptimist International of Tahoe Donner held its 48th Annual Wine and Restaurant Faire on June 10 at Coyote Moon Golf Course. The fundraising event netted over $40,000 to be used for scholarships, grants and community projects.

SITD thanks their sponsors, members, and attendees for making this possible. The rain did not discourage the 300 attendees who enjoyed food tastings, and wine and beer from local restaurants, wineries and breweries. The silent auction tables were packed with multiple bids.
