STATELINE – With $55,000 in donations, the sold-out crowd at Saturday night’s Elegant Evening had plenty of choices when it came to items to bid on.
Most offerings came in the form of silent auction items, though a few pricy things – like trips to the Caribbean and a full set of braces – went for thousands of dollars in the live auction.
This annual event put on by Soroptimist International Tahoe Sierra raises money that is then given back to the community. Issues affecting women and girls are the emphasis of this service club.
People were decked out in sorts of attire – none of which could be called mountain-wear or Tahoe casual.
This sit-down dinner was followed by a lively dance floor in the convention center of Harrah’s Lake Tahoe.
