O’Dette Mortgage Group (OMG) recently hosted an amazing fundraiser opportunity for non-profits in the Truckee/Lake Tahoe Community. Local Realtors were given the chance to donate, then OMG matched the final number and each donor put in a vote for which of the 18 local non profits would receive the funds, with the final winner being Truckee Trails.
On Tuesday evening there was a great party hosted at Fifty/Fifty where the check of $4000 was passed along to Truckee Trails. They plan to use the money for environmental feasibility studies and preparation for the final stages of the Legacy Trail connecting Regional Park to Glenshire. Currently there is work being done to add 3/4 of a mile to the trail which will complete the summer 2010 stage but there are still about 3 miles to go so any funding towards the project is greatly appreciated.
Truckee Trails is an amazing foundation and I had the privilege to meet a couple of the women working with the project. To learn more about this and other Truckee Trails projects and events check out their website.
