You’re a valuable member of our LTCC family, and we want to ensure you have a fabulous experience at our signature event. This year’s event features plenty of comfortable seating. The event will be in a new location, with easy access from the parking lot. The venue will be under the trees on campus by the Coyote Legacy Plaza, with comfortable seating and plenty of shade.
For the VIP party, enjoy low-key acoustic guitar and violin music performed by Milton Merlos, a perfect backdrop for meaningful conversations with college president Jeff DeFranco, his leadership team, and Foundation board members. During the Main Event, the music will shift to DJ background music on a professional sound system throughout the outdoor event venue.
Enjoy an evening under the towering pines on Lake Tahoe Community College’s beautiful mountain campus with music, award-winning California wines, and a sampling of tasty treats from Lake Tahoe and area restaurants. Proceeds from the event directly help students by supporting programs, including the Lake Tahoe College Promise, Student Success Grants, and the emergency book fund.
Sponsors are part of the Coyote family, an exclusive group that values students and the community. Networking with like-minded philanthropists and meeting with LTCC President Jeff DeFranco, LTCC leadership, and the Foundation Board are all benefits of sponsoring Taste of Gold. As is knowing you’re directly helping students succeed in our community.
