North Tahoe Boosters barbecue on Sept. 10

As part of its mission to provide financial aid to the North Tahoe high and middle school athletic department, the North Tahoe Booster Club is once again holding its annual Community Barbecue on Sunday, Sept. 10 at Commons Beach.

The event will ” for the second year ” coincide with the last show of the Commons Beach Summer Concert Series.

The North Tahoe Boosters are committed to helping offset the rising costs of participating in high school sports by consolidating fundraising and distributing money to Laker sports teams for things like uniforms, field fees and equipment.

Since its inception two years ago, the Booster Club has raised over $100,000 for North Tahoe’s athletic programs.

As one of only two annual event fundraisers for the club, the Community barbecue is paramount for North Tahoe athletics.

In addition to generating revenue, the event is also a great way to reach out to the community that is so generous towards its youth.

“It’s a really fun event because it pulls the community together and supports our local athletes,” said North Tahoe Booster Club Board Member Nina Rogers.

On Sept. 10, Sol Jibe will perform for the last show of the summer series ” which has seen large crowds all summer.

The concert is scheduled to start at 3 p.m. and the barbecue will kick off at 1:30 p.m.

The menu will be barbecue type fare ” burgers, veggie burgers, chili, salad, sodas, etc.

In addition to good food and good music, the event will feature a raffle with prizes like $500 cash, bicycles, skis, snowboards, golf, ski passes, golf passes, dinners and more.

The event, like everything the Booster Club does, showcases just how much the community cares about its children.

Local businesses and business leaders donate time, food, supplies and money for this cause.

“It’s great to see local restaurateurs donate so much to this event, and this cause,” Rogers said.

If last year’s event is any gauge, then Commons Beach will be the place to be on Sunday, Sept. 10 starting at 1:30 p.m. What better way to celebrate a great summer and usher in the fall than with great music, good food and community of great people?

According to Rogers, it’s the perfect combination.

“You can eat your dinner and watch a great show,” he said.
