Soroptimist International of Carson Valley invites the community to have a drink, sample some food and support local women.
Their 17th annual Savor the Flavor event is 6 p.m. Saturday at Genoa Lakes Golf Resort.
"It's always nice at the club," chairwoman Rosann Turigliatto said. "There will be lots of wine, beer, food, music, and everybody can have a good time."
Tickets are $40 at the door, or $35 in advance at Battle Born Wine, Carson Valley Chamber of Commerce, Genoa Country Store, Nevada State Bank, Tahoe Ridge Winery, and US Bank.
Guests can wander upstairs or downstairs sampling food by Killer Salsa, Best BBQ, Genoa Cattlewomen's Association, Hamdogs, Papa Murphy's, Genoa Lakes and others. Wine will be provided by local distributors such as Tahoe Ridge Winery and Battle Born Wine.
Music will be provided by DJ Bill McClain and Vargas and Martin will play guitar.
For $5 a ticket, guests can enter drawings for 100 pulls on a Megabucks slot machine plus dinner for two and a one-night stay at Carson Valley Inn, or they can try their luck at winning a wheelbarrow of liquor.
There will also be a silent auction with prizes including spa baskets, dinner gift certificates and a stay at the Hilton in Huntington Beach, Calif.
"It's an assortment of things," Turigliatto said. "Whatever businesses want to donate."
Proceeds from the evening's ticket sales, silent auction and raffles support the women and children in the Valley through community grants, scholarships and awards to help women improve their lives through education and career advancement.
The Soroptimists donate regularly to Abbey Crossing, Backpack Buddies and Boys & Girls Club of Carson Valley. They also give monthly cash donations to student achievers from Douglas and Sierra Lutheran High Schools.
