An Elegant Affair – Tahoe City November 17 2017
For over forty years the Tahoe City area has kicked off the holiday season with An Elegant Affair!
Just like turning your clocks back in earlier this month, on the Friday evening before the week of Thanksgiving, the official kick-off of the year-end holiday season will start and in our area its the annual Elegant Affair.
It’s one of those annual charity | fundraising events that I look forward to each year. There is just something about getting dressed-up and running into old friends, neighbors and past clients that reminds me of how thankful I am to live in such a beautiful place.
Throw in a variety of wines to taste, and appetizers made from some of the North Lake Tahoe areas best area restaurants and catering companies and I’m ready to get into the holiday mood and season in the North Lake Tahoe area.
This year the 41th Annual Elegant Affair event will happen today, Friday, November 17, 2015 beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the Boatworks Mall in downtown Tahoe City, California.
The North Tahoe Boosters organization puts on a wonderful evening of tasting fine wines, beers, and gourmet appetizers to raise money for the North Tahoe High and Middle School Athletics.
There is also a silent auction and 100% of the events proceeds will go to support the North Tahoe Boosters and their programs.
You many not know, or appreciate the hard work and effort that the North Tahoe Boosters Club does to support Tahoe’s local sports programs, but as school budgets have been cut back, many costs fall back onto the students and their families.
The North Tahoe Boosters Club helps cover the costs for many items like uniforms, equipment, travel expenses, and without their financial support, many programs would just not happen.
If you take a moment to remember what it was like to be in middle, or high school and how important those after-school programs were to you, you’ll know why this is a sell-out event.
This is your opportunity to be a part of helping others have those same types of experiences by supporting this excellent fund-raising event.
In addition to the after-school programs, the NT Boosters also give out annual scholarships to seniors who have participated in sports at North Tahoe, so their support of the local Tahoe youth occurs on many levels.
This annual event, An Elegant Affair, is held inside at the Boatworks Mall on both levels with wine, beer, and local restaurants setting up tasting stations around the mall.
Holiday wear is encouraged and black tie is optional, but the truth is, in Tahoe City resort holiday wear can include jeans and a favorite sweater! Don’t let the dress code keep you from showing up at this great, local event!
I’ve attended this event over the years, and it’s always been a lot of fun.
For those of you still looking for a reason to go to this years’ wine tasting event, don’t forget the silent and door prize (wheelbarrow of wine)? Bring your checkbooks, or cash because you’re going to find some great silent auction items to bid on. What could be more fun than wine tasting and shopping at a silent auction and all for a great cause?
This year the event organizers will have many local Tahoe–Truckee restaurants, along with wineries and breweries. If you love wine tasting and are looking for a way to kick-off your holiday season while supporting a good local organizations this is the event for you.
