Living in a resort town definitely has an upside when it comes to corporate support. As not only do our local business and organizations help the Club, but often organizations holding conferences and events here in town, also reach out to offer their help. This Spring we have three new organizations, two from out of town, who have chosen to partner with BGCLT for their event.
Have you purchased your ticket to the Tahoe Brewfest yet? Over 1200 other people have and this year’s event is shaping up to be the top of the hops. As well as over 40 breweries, we’ll also be pouring cider, root beer, craft sodas and yes – we gave in – wine! For those of you who don’t like the grain, the Tahoe Pourhouse will be on hand with their unique frozen wine – a perfect refresher for what will hopefully be another hot and sunny day.
Our amazing Events and Fundraising Director Nicole Marsel has been hard at work since last November preparing for this year's Tahoe Brewfest. The magic date is Saturday June 1st and already we have sold over 700 tickets for the event. Last year the Brewfest raised over $60,000 for the Club and our goal is to make it the number 1 Club fundraiser this year.
In 2016, over 17% of children in El Dorado County suffered from food insecurity. This was down from the high of 21% in 2013, but still means that in a class of 30 children, 5 of them are going hungry.The good news is that the Club, and our friends and colleagues at other not for profits, are doing great work to help those children.
