Tahoe Fund to receive proceeds from Alpenglow Sports’ speaker series
It’s not too late to register for the fourth event of the 2020-21 Alpenglow Sports Winter Speaker Series and support the Tahoe Fund. Scheduled to take place at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 4, the free live streamed event will feature a presentation by professional skier Ingrid Backstrom followed by a live raffle that includes coveted outdoor gear. Tickets for the live raffle are available for purchase upon registration for the free event, with proceeds benefiting the Tahoe Fund.
An eagerly anticipated winter storytelling tradition for North Lake Tahoe’s adventure community, the Alpenglow Sports Winter Speaker Series attracts over 4,000 attendees annually and has successfully generated more than $50,000 per show for local nonprofit organizations. The Tahoe Fund is the beneficiary of the Feb. 4 event.
Backstrom, a professional skier of international fame, will present “Little Big Mountain Skiing,” showcasing a few of her best trips and ski lines. She will also share how she has continued to manage her ski career while becoming a mother.
“The Tahoe Fund is honored and humbled to have been selected by Alpenglow Sports as one of the nonprofits benefiting from its successful winter speaker series,” said Jim Porter, Tahoe Fund board member. “Over the past 15 years, Alpenglow has done a phenomenal job sharing the inspiring stories of athletes in our community and beyond, while motivating people to give back to organizations that keep our community moving forward. We are thrilled to be part of this event and grateful for the support.”
Alpenglow Sports will give away over $10,000 in outdoor gear during the live broadcast. Everything from skis to jackets and other outdoor swag will be part of the raffle giveaway, with entries starting at just $5. Event registration is free and available online at https://www.alpenglowsports.com/winter-speaker-series/.
