Thank you for participating in our first ever Farm to Table Dinner

Our first-ever chic Farm-to-Table Dinner, in partnership with Squaw Valley Institute (SVI), was certainly an unforgettable evening. Held on the lakefront terrace of the North Tahoe Event Center in King’s Beach, renowned, local celebrity chefs Darren Weston Wyatt Dufresne and Glenn Simpson created a beautiful seven course meal paired with wine for more than 100 guests.
This one-of-a-kind experience was a partnership venture from two organizations who both work to build a stronger community. “As a leader in conservation, connection and communication, we relish the opportunity to partner with other prominent organizations on engaging our communities to give back to the Sierra in the hopes that future generations will be able to enjoy this wondrous playground like so many of us do,” said Jenny Hatch, Executive Director of the Sierra Nevada Alliance. SVI is the newest member group of the Alliance and brings with it an influence of culture, arts, education and community.
Special thanks to Matt Reardon, Executive Director of SVI for his leadership in planning the event. Also, huge thank yous to our incredible chefs for donating their time and talent, and to our food and beverage partners, Tahoe Food Hub, Bella Grace Vineyards and Tahoe Blue Vodka. And thank you to Keoki Flagg for showcasing and donating his breathtaking artwork throughout the conference and Farm-to-Table Dinner. Last, but certainly not least, thank you to our hard-working, dedicated volunteers for making the evening the success that it was. We couldn’t have done it without you, and it was an amazing way to celebrate the Alliance’s 25th Anniversary!
