First Responders BBQ / Fundraiser

May 20 at 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

This Saturday, May 20, Tahoe Expedition Academy (TEA) will host a first responder appreciation BBQ at the Tahoe Vista Recreation Area. This event will serve two purposes: to appreciate the many men and women in the Tahoe and Reno areas who have chosen this line of work; and to raise money for C.O.P.S. (Concerns of Police Survivors) and the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation to support these men and women if tragedy occurs.


More details appear below:


  • What: First Responders BBQ and Fundraiser
  • When: Saturday, May 20, 2017; 10:00 am – 3:00 pm PT
  • Where: Tahoe Vista Recreation Area (located at the intersection of Highway 28 and National Avenue in Tahoe Vista, CA)
  • Who: First responders and the community
  • Why: To appreciate first responders and raise funds for two organizations: C.O.P.S. (Concerns of Police Survivors) and the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation


To better understand men and women in roles of service, TEA’s 5th-grade teacher felt that it would be beneficial to connect with local first responder agencies (police, fire, and EMS). The students were astonished at how often they have risked their lives for the safety and comfort of civilians and were so moved that they decided to host an appreciation and fundraising event.


Purchase barbecue tickets or send donations directly to Tahoe Expedition Academy, 8651 Speckled Ave., Box 1272 Kings Beach, CA 96143.
