One of our wonderful Master Gardener Volunteers sent us this email announcement about an upcoming Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful fundraiser and we thought we’d pass on the information to you all!
Just want to let you know that there’s a really fun fund-raising event coming up the evening of Thursday, November 3, for Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful. KTMB is a non-profit organization supported by individual and community donations that plans, coordinates, and organizes many valuable community programs, including some you may have participated in, such as Truckee River Clean-up Day, the Litter Index, and Phone Book and Christmas Tree Recycling, and Community Recycling (maybe you dropped off your old TV or computer at this type of event this past Saturday). These are just some of the many community programs KTMB puts on during the year to create a cleaner, more beautiful region for us to live, work and play in. We think very highly of this organization. So much so that Cliff is a past President of the organization, and I’ve been a volunteer for them for 10+ years.
The event is called Laugh for a Good Cause and the venue is the Catch A Rising Star Comedy Club in the Silver Legacy Casino in Reno. For the really low $20 admission charge (a portion of the ticket price goes to KTMB) you get to enjoy a great comedy show with headliner Tim O’Rourke, whose credits include playing ‘Tim the Bartender’ on the “Drew Carey Show” and numerous writing gigs. There will be free appetizers, and a silent auction with exciting things to bid on and win. Doors open at 6 p.m. with the comedy show starting at 7:30. More info and ticket purchase is at http://ktmb.org/blog/laugh-good. I also have tickets for sale, so if you’d rather save the PayPal fee, buy your tickets from me.
Hope to see you there! And bring your friends, relatives, co-workers and anyone else you might know! 🙂
