Savor the Flavor a success


The 13th annual Savor the Flavor fundraiser on March 8 at Genoa Lakes Golf Resort raised over $22,000 that will go back into the community.

Soroptimist International publicity chair Bronwyn Mason and event chairperson Brenda Cristanelli confirmed the event's success by noting the 280-plus attendees left laughing, smiling and promising to do it again next year.

"We wish to thank everyone who attended the event, sampled wines from 36 wineries and tasted the broad range of food provided by ten restaurants and eateries. The silent auction had 60 items generously donated by the business community," stated Rosann Turigliatto, this year's president of Soroptimist International Carson Valley. "We could not have hosted this event were it not for our many sponsors, who generously provided their services and time to make this event a success this year."
