This past Monday, the first annual “Art of All Things” was held on the West Shore of Lake Tahoe. The dinner/auction was held at the West Shore Café and raised over 200k for the Tahoe Fund.
The Tahoe Fund is an environmental non-profit that’s just about to celebrate their first year of operations. Proceeds from the dinner/auction will go towards helping the Tahoe Fund achieve its ultimate goals. The Tahoe Fund’s primary goal is to raise money from the private sector, and partner with public agencies to support the recreational and natural resources of the gem of the Sierra, Lake Tahoe. The Tahoe Fund has several other goals, including but not limited to supporting environmental restoration projects, building and maintaining local bike paths and parks, and facilitating interpretive programs.
The invitation-only event was sold out, and featured eco-fashions, art for sale, fine wines, fine dining, as well as a host of politicos and other members of the greater Tahoe community wishing to support positive measures for Lake Tahoe. The green event was focused as a zero-waste event, and also featured cuisine from five of the most well known chefs from the Reno/Tahoe and Bay Area.
Among the notable guests in attendance for this extraordinary evening was Senator Dianne Feinstein from California, Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval, California Governor Jerry Brown, Tahoe Summit Host Art Chapman, and Squaw Valley’s own Andy Wirth. Local photographers Keoki Flagg and Hank de Vre were also in attendance, having donated some of their fine works of art to the auction.
