Best of Tahoe Chefs, Friday, June 1st at The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe

We will be paying special tribute to Chef Chris Banovich who lost his battle to cancer this past November 2017. Chris was best known for his incredible ice sculptures which were showcased at our annual Best of Tahoe Chefs events. 100% of funds raised from Best of Tahoe Chefs benefit patient and family programs at the Gene Upshaw Memorial Tahoe Forest Cancer Center. What are patient and family programs? Transportation, hotel lodging, wigs, massage therapy, grocery vouchers, individual counseling and acupuncture are just a few of many of the programs and services we are able to offer free of charge, thanks to the money raised from our Best of Tahoe Chefs community generosity. You can click on any of these services on our website to make a donation that will directly benefit a cancer patient.


10th Annual Gene Upshaw Memorial Golf Classic, July 8 & 9, 2018  

Once again, Schaffer’s Mill Golf & Lake Club is the official Presenting Sponsor and host for this years’ event. The 10th Annual event proceeds fund quality medical care for patients and their families, sustainability and advancement of medical technology, and funding research in areas such as pancreatic cancer and traumatic brain injury. Sponsorships and Golf Slots typically sell-out 3 to 4 months in advance so if you don’t want to miss this opportunity to participate in a great tradition in Tahoe, reserve your spot online today!  

Enjoy the party of the year (no golf experience required)! You don’t have to be a golfer to enjoy a great party at the Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe. Tickets are $175 each, which entitles guests to incredible food, silent and live auction, and opportunity to rub elbows with the greatest sports legends of our time.
