An Elegant Affair – Tahoe City, November 21, 2014
Each year on the Friday evening, the week before the Thanksgiving Day holiday weekend, the Elegant Affair has been held in Tahoe City, California.
It’s one of those annual charity events that unofficially kicks off the holiday season for me in the North Lake Tahoe area.
This year the 38th Annual Elegant Affair event will happen on Friday, November 21, 2014 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. As school budgets are cut back, many costs fall back onto the students and their families. The North Tahoe Boosters Club covers the costs for many items like uniforms, equipment, travel expenses, and without their financial support, many programs would just not happen.
While it has been a few years since I was in school, it hasn’t been so long that I don’t remember how important those non-class programs were to me. This is your opportunity to be a part of helping others have those same experiences by supporting this fund-raising event.
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 with wine, beer, and local restaurants setting up tasting stations around the mall on both the first and second levels. Holiday wear is encouraged and black tie is optional, but the truth is casual wear, including jeans is okay too! So 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 I can tell you it’s a wonderful evening. It’s fun to dress up and see old friends, meet new people and between the wine tasting, enjoying an array of interesting appetizers from local restaurants, don’t be surprised if you find yourself swaying, or dancing to the music that will be playing in the background.
For those of you still looking for a reason to go to this years’ wine tasting event, did I mention shopping? Don’t forget to bring your checkbooks 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 twenty-eight (28) local Tahoe-Truckee restaurants and twenty-two (22) fine wineries and two (2) 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.
