Tahoe Fund Organizing Sponsor of 2012 Lake Tahoe Summit

Non-profit's New Private Funding Model for Basin to be Highlighted at Summit on Monday, August 13


By: Tahoe Fund

TAHOE CITY, Calif. and INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. ,August 9, 2012 – The need for more public-private partnerships to complete environmental projects at Lake Tahoe is the focus of the 16th annual Lake Tahoe Summit, which will be held this Monday, August 13 at the Edgewood Tahoe resort at Stateline, NV. The free event will be held 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. and is open to the public.

"This need is directly addressed by the non-profit Tahoe Fund," said Amy Berry, CEO of the Tahoe Fund, which for a second year is the Tahoe Summit Organizing Sponsor. "Our goal is to engage people and organizations with a passion for Tahoe and raise the money needed for environmental projects in the Tahoe Basin. The message at the Summit from our elected leaders will motivate people to become involved in the efforts to improve and enhance the recreation and natural resources of this incredible lake."

Host U.S. Senator Dean Heller, U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein, U.S. Congressman Tom McClintock, Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval, California Governor Jerry Brown and other officials and experts are expected to talk about the issues facing Lake Tahoe and the need for public partnerships with private sources like private citizens, businesses and foundations to accomplish environmental and recreational improvements in the Tahoe Basin.

The 2-year-old Tahoe Fund has raised more than $700,000 in private pledges since last year. The Tahoe-based organization is holding its second annual Summer Dinner this Sunday at Edgewood Tahoe's Historic Friday's Station to honor its Founders Circle donors who have pledged to financially support the Fund and its goal of providing funding for conservation, recreation and stewardship education projects at Lake Tahoe.

Registration at the 2012 Lake Tahoe Summit will begin at 9:00 a.m. at the Edgewood Tahoe resort and presentations will start at 10. Parking will be at the Horizon Casino Resort, 50 Highway 50, Stateline, NV and free shuttles will provide transportation to the nearby Summit venue.

The mission of Tahoe Fund is to restore and enhance the extraordinary natural environment of the Lake Tahoe Basin by building broad support and funding for projects and programs that increase the enjoyment of the region for current and future generations. The Fund focuses grants on the core areas of conservation, recreation and education/stewardship. www.tahoefund.org
