Family Support Council’s dinner dance and radio-thon coming up

Staff reports

The Family Support Council of Douglas County will once again hold its biggest fund-raiser of the year, the annual dinner and dance, on the evening of March 7.

This year’s theme for the dinner/dance, auction and radio-thon is “Celebrating the Music of the ’60s,” a retrospective gala with great food and dance for all supporters of the non-profit agency to enjoy.

Period dress is not required but is encouraged.

“The Ravens,” a Bay Area band that consists of a medical doctor, three attorneys, an archeologist, paramedic, fireman and sound engineer, will bring back the music of the ’60s in stellar fashion. Outside of their prospective professions, music is their passion and they have performed at many charitable functions, weddings and dances.

The dinner and dance will feature a silent auction, no-host cocktail hour, dinner and drawing for prizes at the Carson Valley Inn. The festivities will begin at 6 p.m. Tickets are $40 each, with raffle tickets available prior to and during the event and a Leonard Ludel diamond as the door prize.

The menu is a surprise, but dinner will be served family-style, and Judge David Gamble will entertain guests with his quick wit as the auctioneer.

KGVM is again donating air time to the annual radio-thon from 9 a.m to 4 p.m. in the lobby of the Carson Valley Inn. Guest speakers are scheduled to assist with the auctioning off of many great prizes.

Radio and silent auction items include tickets to Disneyland, overnight lodging at Sorensen’s Hope Valley Resort, Embassy Suites, the Horizon and the Fantasy Inn at Lake Tahoe, numerous meals at some of the most outstanding restaurants in the area, a round of golf at Northstar and tickets to shows, a soaring ride with Soar Minden, and a three-month family pass at the Carson Valley Swim Center, just to name a few.

Raffle tickets will be available before and during the event, but will not be drawn until the evening’s festivities begin. You do not have to be present to win.

The annual dinner/dance fund-raiser is perhaps the most important event for the non-profit Family Support Council. All funds raised go toward the programs that are offered to the community free of charge.
