The Tahoe Truckee Excellence in Education Foundation is offering its 2009 Golfing for Schools card. The transferable pass is only $400 and provides 18-holes of play at seven premiere North Tahoe and Truckee area golf courses.
Golf courses honoring the card include: Coyote Moon, Northstar-at-Tahoe, Old Brockway, Old Greenwood, Resort at Squaw Creek, Tahoe City and Tahoe Donner. Some restrictions do apply; see http://www.exined.org to purchase or for details. There are a limited number of passes available and they will be sold on a first come, first serve basis.
As a benefit for local students, Truckee and Glenshire Elementary School PTOs have come together for A-Deck-Affair, Friday, May 8, from 6 to 9:30 p.m. at the River Ranch Restaurant and Lodge. The event will include casual food, music by local musician Neva and silent/live auctions.
“The community support has been amazing. Everyone is excited for a collaborative effort between the two elementary schools,” says Amanda Friedrichsen, co-chair of A-Deck-Affair. “Without continued fundraising efforts, many programs are likely to disappear and we need the community to help keep them alive,” adds Friedrichsen.
Tickets are available for $30 in advance at Smokey’s Kitchen, Glenshire General Store, Glenshire School and New Moon Natural Foods. All proceeds will go directly to the students. PTOs work to build a sense of community and enhance student’s learning in academics, athletics and the arts. In addition to hosting school-wide events, PTO monies traditionally provide cross-country ski equipment and trips, swimming lessons, assemblies, student performances, nutrition education, art docents, special tutoring services and field trips. And supplementing the amazing Special Friends counseling program.
