Tahoe Youth & Family Services first annual “Taste of the Carson Valley” provided participating restaurants an opportunity to share their tastiest bites and signature cocktails with very special ticket holders. Friends of Tahoe Youth & Family Services boarded the Hilltop Church bus and left the driving to David. Thank you to JT’s Basque Restaurant, the Carson Valley Country Club, Cook’d, Sonney’s Barbecue Shack, and The Overland managers and staff for their generosity and support of Tahoe Youth & Family Services. Our gratitude goes to ABE Printing & Copy Center for all event printing, all the business donations for raffle items and our silent auction Valley and Lake packages. Special thanks to Daphne Hillyer of Carson Valley Medical Center for water on the bus and enthusiastically selling an entire roll of raffle tickets in five hours!
Lisa and Todd Whear are the heroes of the night, selling the most tickets for the event to friends and family. Finally, special thanks to Courtney Moore for her design and publicity work attracting restaurants and potential ticket holders to the event. Kudos to our MC at the Overland competing with the San Francisco 49er playoff game, Board Member David Stevensen. Board members DeAnna Imelli, Michael Millwork, Judy Breza and Cheryl Bricker acted as hosts at the restaurants. Fundraising proceeds will find their way to our clients receiving counseling and supportive services. Thank you for turning an idea into a fun and profitable evening!
