The third annual Tahoe City’s Farm to Table Dinner will take place on Tuesday, July 9, 2013. Championed by Douglas Dale, this year’s event will feature the freshest, locally and sustainably grown foods prepared lakeside at Commons Beach.
Chefs Lee Kresy of D’Lish Catering, Jonny Roscher of Za’s, Scott Yorkey of Jakes and Allison Sayles of Sugar Pine Cakery also lend their talents to the evening, which has become one of Tahoe City’s signature summer events.
Tahoe City’s Farm to Table Dinner was started in 2011 in a collaboration between Douglas Dale and the Tahoe City Downtown Association to help raise funds for the Tahoe City Farmer’s Market’s relocation studies.
“We’ve really grown the event in the last two years, its become something people look forward to every summer,” Said Christin Hanna, a member of the Board of Directors of TCDA who has helped the event since its inception.
This year’s funds will go to support Tahoe City Downtown Association, Tahoe Youth Ballet, and the Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation.
Founded in 2004, the Tahoe City Downtown Association (TCDA) is a non-profit organization comprised of local merchants, property owners, associations, professionals, and community members who share a mission to enhance and promote a vibrant and prosperous downtown center for residents and visitors.
Tahoe Youth Ballet was founded in 2009 by Christin Hanna to enrich the cultural and educational fabric of Lake Tahoe by establishing a professional level ballet company where young, local dancers and dance students collaborate with professional dancers, choreographers and master teachers from around the country to share classical and contemporary dance within the community and beyond.
Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation connects people and opportunities, generating resources to build a more caring, creative, and effective community. With a long-term goal of securing discretionary resources from many donors to meet changing community needs, TTCF has been building philanthropy in North Tahoe through its work with donors, nonprofits and communities for more than a decade. Established through the vision of William Hewlett and the commitment of community leaders throughout the region, the Foundation serves thousands of people who share a common passion for the Truckee Tahoe region.
