RAOK: From dinner for his wife to watching the Giants


Bruce Brown is going to see the May 19 baseball game at AT&T Park courtesy of Lake Tahoe News. The San Francisco Giants host the Oakland A’s that day.

He and whomever he chooses to take are going because Brown was randomly chosen as the latest winner of Lake Tahoe News’ Random Acts of Kindness promotion. Based on his Act of Kindness — surprising his wife with dinner — the second ticket may be spoken for already.

It’s free and easy to participate. All you have to do is perform a Random Act of Kindness, witness one or be the recipient of an act. Then tell us about it via a comment at the bottom of this story.

Each day through the month of January someone will be rewarded by a business in Lake Tahoe.

If you haven’t been picked, just keep trying. Winners are picked randomly.

    My grown nephew, Lance Allen helped me empty a huge bin of yard waste into the approved refuse bin for pick-up. I am a single senior woman who has limited capacity for doing hard labor, which needs to be done! He always is happy to help!

    Someone at the grocery store (too shy to get their name) let me go first when they saw I had only a few items and they had a basket full. Thank you!

    After work one day last month, I had just turned onto South Upper Truckee Rd. It was dark and slippery from a bit of snow we had received. A young man, carrying two Lira’s grocery bags, was walking in the direction I was headed. I pulled over and asked if he wanted a ride. I figured he was staying somewhere in my neighborhood. He said he was fine walking. I told him I was concerned with the condition the road was in. He agreed but said he was headed up Meyers Grade. He was from the East Coast and had rented a room at Little Norway via the internet, not knowing the location! I told him to get in and drove him up Echo. He offered money for gas and when I said no he gave me a hug. As Dee wrote earlier, I don’t normally give strangers rides. But it sure felt good to get this young man to Little Norway safely.

    We had a strange occurrence at the office today. We have huge plate glass windows and all of a sudden we heard this big thump and a strange noise. Larry Sabo, a realtor at Paradise Real Estate, went out to investigate and found a very stunned pigeon on the walkway. He took it in his hands and held onto him, brought him into the office and placed him in a dark box to calm down. A few minutes later the bird broke through the box but had blood on his eye, so Larry put him back in the box and took it out to Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care. The bird is hopefully saved because of what Larry did!

    My husband and I are allowing a friend’s son to stay with us while he tries to get through high school. It is very challenging to deal with another mouth to feed and take care of but we feel it is worth the struggle if he grows into a responsible adult.
