Fortnightly annual fundraiser


Minden Fortnightly Club, the oldest service club in Carson Valley, celebrated its 103rd year with their annual fundraiser auction, “A Sierra Spectacle.”

This year’s event raised more than $18,000, all of which will return into the Carson Valley community. The women of Fortnightly would like to extend their gratitude to all of those who made our fundraiser a huge success.

Because of the gracious support from our community, we will be able to continue our support to several local charities, and the special needs of the CVIC Hall in Minden.

We will also maintain our commitment to Austin’s House, Meals on Wheels, and an outreach program for special needs in our local community.
