Lake Tahoe, CASierra State Parks Foundation and California State Parks announce a rare opportunity to experience “behind the scenes” at Pine Lodge, the Ehrman Mansion, at Sugar Pine Point State Park on Friday, August 31, 2012 from 5 to 8 pm.  Tickets are $50 per person with proceeds earmarked to provide critically needed funds for maintenance and repairs at Pine Lodge.  Planned projects include an electrical system upgrade, lathe and plaster repair, window repairs and more.

“This is the first event of its kind”, said Heidi Doyle, Interpretive Manager for Sugar Pine Point State Park.  “Guests will view never seen locations, such as the Children’s House.  We’re very excited to partner with Sierra State Parks Foundation for this special evening.”

Guests will be treated to after-hours tours starting between 5 and 5:30 pm.  These leisurely tours will visit areas not normally viewed by the public such as the Children’s House and the mansion’s 3rd floor servants’ quarters.  Following the tour, wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served on the front porch.  Guests will enjoy their food and drink while relaxing on the porch or strolling through the living room listening to piano music.  Docents will be on hand to answer questions and chat with attendees.

Space is limited and reservations are required.  For reservations, please call the Sierra State Parks Foundation office at 530-583-9911.
