North Tahoe’s Most Flavorful Fundraiser Features 30 Food, Wine, and Beer Tasting Stations and a Silent Auction and Raffle  

KINGS BEACH, Calif. – September 29, 2023 – Back for it’s seventeenth year, Passport to Dining promises to be an evening of delicious food, craft breweries, and regional wineries that attendees won’t want to miss. North Tahoe Business Association (NTBA), a nonprofit organization with a mission to improve economic vitality and quality of life, will host North Tahoe’s most flavorful fundraiser on Thursday, November 2, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at North Tahoe Event Center, in Kings Beach, CA. 

Passport to Dining brings together 30 tasting stations offering a wide variety of flavors from restaurants, caterers, wineries, and breweries. While enjoying tastings, attendees can support two worthy local nonprofit organizations by purchasing raffle tickets and bidding on silent auction items and packages. The raffle and auction are recognized as one of the best in North Lake Tahoe featuring Northern California Getaway Packages and many additional valuable items. 

This year, NTBA will donate a portion of Passport to Dining’s proceeds to Tahoe Truckee School of Music, an organization dedicated to offering music lessons, group classes, and performance experiences to students of all ages.

Tickets are $60 and include unlimited responsible tastings. Attendees can vote for the People’s Choice award for best food station. Tickets are available in advance only, and can be found online here on a limited, first-come, first-served basis.   

“Passport to Dining is a super fun and social fundraiser that allows NTBA to showcase and guests to enjoy culinary delights from a variety of tasting stations while supporting two worthy local nonprofit organizations,” said Alyssa Reilly, executive director of NTBA.
