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.
What a winter 2018/19 is shaping up to being, and despite the snow days and the traffic and the endless shoveling, we are still lucky to live in such a beautiful and adventurous place. And that makes it even more vital that our local children get the same access to fun and adventure that our tourists do.
In March we will begin sign-ups for the summer and 2019-2020 school year. Our membership fees have not increased for three years as we feel strongly that the Club should be offer high quality programs and be affordable for all families. Over those three years we have worked hard to raise additional funding to cover our costs. We started the Tahoe Brewfest, applied for endless grants and looked for support from our ever generous community.
