To Our Community,
It is with great disappointment that Soroptimist International of South Lake Tahoe has been informed that its partnership with Edgewood Tahoe, during the annual American Century Celebrity Golf Tournament, has come to an end.
Since the very beginning of the tournament, now 28 years ago, Soroptimist and Edgewood have enjoyed a mutual partnership that had allowed our members to run, staff and serve the patrons of the Celebrity Golf Tournament through the food concession tents. We have taken great pride in this role, volunteering over 2,500 hours per year and raising valuable funds that go back into our community.
Under the previous Edgewood management, Soroptimist has been a trusted and valued partner. We have served countless hot dogs and beverages over our tenure, worked thousands of volunteer shifts and enjoyed a relationship that entrusted us to manage as an important facet of guest services.
Our volunteers have been responsible with staffing each shift, managing inventory, cash flow and supplies for the concessions. It is a relationship in which we have taken a great amount of pride and we are grateful to have so many fond memories from over the years. It has also evolved into one of our biggest fundraisers of the year, as a portion of the proceeds from the concessions were donated each year towards our community grants and scholarships. We thank all of the community volunteers who have offered their time and talents to participate in this event with us throughout the years including our sister club Soroptimist International of Tahoe Sierra.
Soroptimist International of South Lake Tahoe’s mission is to serve women and children in our community. We regret that Edgewood, under new management, no longer sees value in continuing our partnership and supporting our mission.
We have so enjoyed serving you, our community and visitors, during the golf tournament over the years. The camaraderie along with the love, work, sweat and tears poured into running the concessions will always be remembered by our members and will be a part of our club’s history.
With gratitude to our community, visitors and friends,
Soroptimist International of South Lake Tahoe
