"This need is directly addressed by the non-profit Tahoe Fund," said Amy Berry, CEO of the Tahoe Fund, which for a second year is the Tahoe Summit Organizing Sponsor. "Our goal is to engage people and organizations with a passion for Tahoe and raise the money needed for environmental projects in the Tahoe Basin. The message at the Summit from our elected leaders will motivate people to become involved in the efforts to improve and enhance the recreation and natural resources of this incredible lake."
The 2-year-old Tahoe Fund has raised more than $700,000 in private pledges since last year. The Tahoe-based organization is holding its second annual Summer Dinner this Sunday at Edgewood Tahoe's Historic Friday's Station to honor its Founders Circle donors who have pledged to financially support the Fund and its goal of providing funding for conservation, recreation and stewardship education projects at Lake Tahoe.

At last year's event, Brown used a different S-word than the one he more recently uttered: "We want to build stuff, and we want to plan. If we plan too much we are never going to build anything. And if we build too much we are not going to have very good plans."
