No joke, the Cadillac Ball raises serious dough

Courtesy of Vicki Kahn/Sierra SunAndrew Cross invited Betty Scott to join the coveted "Cross wine tasting corner" at the Rotary event.

It’s been a tradition in Truckee for 29 years. Every fall those industrious Rotarians who get fined when their names appear in the Sierra Sun put on a party like no other in Truckee to raise some serious bucks.

Only it’s really in Squaw Valley ” at the Resort at Squaw Creek to be exact. Anyway, the event last Saturday took its cue from a very funny late night TV show and titled this year’s event “Live From Truckee, The 29th Annual Cadillac Ball.”

Over 400 spiffed-up guests paid top dollar to attend the club’s major fundraiser that had an extensive silent auction, a short and sweet live auction, a $10,000 grand prize drawing (congratulations ), stand up comedy entertainment, a three-course dinner, and dancing to the live music of “Mercy Me.”

Congratulations to live auction winners (who will be flying via private aircraft to Vegas along with friends), (who will be saying “Aloha”), (who finally has a fairly decent wine collection), and and (who will be dining with their guests at Truckee’s finest dining establishments).

And just because the Rotary Kitty needs some plumping up until the final figures are tallied for the evening’s take, here’s a list of some of those who were in attendance and who will be laughing all the way to the club’s bank:
