Greenhouse Project Update
The fifth annual Concert Under the Stars that benefits TGP was a huge success thanks to the hard work of dedicated volunteers and supporters of this great cause. With deep gratitude special thanks goes out to NV Energy and Carson Tahoe Hospital for their sponsorship of the event and to Gold Dust West who comped the rooms for the band. Thank you also to all the attendees, to Cafe at Adeles for providing the site and support staff and to John Procaccini who coordinates the venue. It was a great night! TGP is already planning for next year’s concert date….July 9 or 10. Will keep updates coming.
Our greenhouse manager Ray Saliga has been hired by UNR to manage multiple greenhouses. This is a great career move for him but he will be missed. He will be part time with TGP until Nov 1 but we are thrilled that our assistant greenhouse manager Americorp hire, Camille Jones, has accepted to take Ray’s place. She as Ray did will leave her own footprint on the project and TGP looks forward to more great progress ahead.
Save the date…..The Celebrity Chef Harvest Dinner is Monday November 11(Veteran’s Day). Chefs Charlie Abowd and Mark Estee will partner for this delicious evening at Cafe at Adeles. Some wonderful silent auction items will be available for bidding. More to follow.
A great way to help TGP is to be a 2014 flower basket sponsor and keep “Beauty in a Basket Bloomin”. The flower basket sponsorship campaign for 2014 will begin the last week of September. Sponsorship forms will be available online or at Cafe at Adeles.
