Westall Real Estate Shows Gratitude for Firefighters and First Responders

Lake Tahoe Wildfire

Westall Real Estate Shows Gratitude for Firefighters and First Responders

To express our appreciation for firefighters fighting on the front lines of the Caldor Fire and to thank them for saving Lake Tahoe homes, Dave Westall and his team provided 100 lunches from Tahoe Fuller’s sandwich shop last week. Hearing about the heroic efforts of all first responders and firefighters, we wanted to do something to lift their spirits during their breaks and fuel their souls with some hearty, healthy food and support from our local community. It was important to us to honor the sacrifices they have all been making to protect Tahoe families, homes, and our wildlife.
Lake Tahoe WildfireFor a little cheer to enjoy after the fire is put out, we partnered with Riva Grill who provided first responders with gift tokens for a frosty Wet Woody or other drink of choice at any of the Tahoe Restaurant Collection’s iconic establishments including North Lake Tahoe’s Gar Woods and Caliente, Truckee’s Bar of America, Riva Grill in South Lake Tahoe, or their latest new opening of Sparks Water Bar in Reno, NV.
We were very grateful for our other Tahoe City friends, Mike and Meghan Polite, the sibling duo owners of Tahoe Fuller’s who were able to execute this within a few days of our request. Not only are they some of the tastiest sandwiches in North Lake Tahoe they also have of the best sweet treats like gooey chocolate chip brownies, PB&J chocolate cups, and unforgettable lemon bars.

We’d also like to give a huge shout out to Harrah’s Lake Tahoe Hotel & Casino and the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office who made it possible for us to set up our event and help spread the word.
