Thanks for supporting FISH


I would like to thank all the attendees and volunteers who participated in the first Celebrity Waiter Luau to support the FISH Family Dining Room coming soon to the Gardnerville Ranchos. Our guests enjoyed a Hawaiian buffet, music, dancing, waiter games, trying our special Tanked FISH drink while tipping their waiters and buying raffle tickets to get this project rolling. The celebrity waiters did an awesome job taking care of and entertaining their tables. The waiters were: Bill Chernock, Dan Aynesworth, Dave Brady, Chad Shepherd, Jason Tolman, Jim Wheeler, John Fisher, Katherine Lima, Kimi Cole, Laurie Harden, Laurie Hennessey, Nancy Epstein, Bill McCready, Jim Beilstein, Renea Louie, Rex Baggett, Ron Pierini and Suzanne Colyer. Raffle prizes were provided by Genoa Lakes Golf Course, Carson Valley Inn, Dr. Eric S. Park, PJ’s Restaurant and Saloon, Jean Scott, Carson Valley Golf Course, Carson Valley Country Club, Debbie McFadden, Jim Flynn and Doubletree Orlando, Chart House Restaurant, Napa Sonoma- Reno, Sierra Ski and Cycle Works, Tep’s Villa Roma, David Walley’s Hot Springs Resort and Spa, Mike Writes, and Ski Run Marina. Beautiful tabletop flower arrangements were donated by Smith’s grocery store. Thanks also to volunteers Judy Davis and Steve Peache, our talented musician Doug Lubushkin, our passionate speaker Frankie Shy and a special thanks to Marie Stokes for her input and ideas and for the wonderful venue she and her staff created.

Thanks to everyone for having a heart for our community and working together for the good of those who need a “hand up.”

Hope to see you next year.
