North Tahoe Events
“Pretty Faces,” an all-female ski and adventure sport film takes place on Dec. 3 at Tahoe Mountain Sports in Truckee
The evening is presented by Patagonia and TMS with all raffle proceeds and a portion of event-night store specials going to the Tahoe Food Hub, a non-profit organization working to build a regional food system for North Lake Tahoe.
On event night attendees will not only enjoy the film, snacks and drinks, there will be storewide savings and special deals on women’s specific apparel, footwear and gear. With the holidays approaching this is a great evening to take care of gifts for the adventure-minded people on your gift list.
Free and open to the public, the Pretty Faces film was created by professional skier Lynsey Dyer to offer young girls role models and inspiration to explore the outdoors. The film also highlights the pioneer athletes of women’s adventure sport while showcasing Mother Nature in all her glory.
The screening of the film is another event where TMS, Patagonia and the Tahoe Food Hub have partnered to further each other’s missions of engaging the local community and to give back during this holiday season.
“Tahoe Mountain Sports was our first community partner when we launched in November 2012,” said Susie Sutphin, director of Tahoe Food Hub. “Each year we look forward to partnering with them on a community event to help share our mission with more people and engage them in our service work to build a sustainable foodshed for North Lake Tahoe.”
The Tahoe Food Hub works to increase access to nutritious, ecologically grown food by creating a network of regional farms within 100-miles of North Lake Tahoe and connecting them to restaurants, small grocers, schools and hospitals. The organization is also exploring ways to grow food locally using four-season growing techniques at its Sierra Agroecology Center in Truckee. For more information check out tahoefoodhub.org
