CVI Wins Best of Nevada, Austinpalooza Announced, July Events, More

Carson Valley Inn is Best of Nevada! It's True!!! Carson Valley Inn was voted Best Casino in Nevada by the print readers and online followers of Nevada Magazine! We are thrilled and offer our sincere "Thank You" to all who made this happen! Here's how it was explained to us: Statewide there are three "Best Casino" winners: one for Reno/Sparks, one for  the metro Las Vegas area and one for the entire rest of the state (including Tahoe and Carson City) - and that's the category we won! Pretty good honor considering how many casinos there are around the state outside of Reno and Vegas!

A Peak at Our July Promotions: The details for our July promotions went "to the printer" earlier this week and we'll have more in next week's blog posting. As a heads-up, there is a special promo next Wednesday, July 2: Earn 125 points that day and receive a free USA T-Shirt while they last, plus you keep the points!

$100,000 for the Boys & Girls Club Last Weekend! What an incredible team: The Eddie Money Concert audience, the Mike Tice Charity Golf Tournament participants, a dozen very generous local sponsors and the Carson Valley Inn – we all teamed up for a most energetic weekend that raised $100,000 for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Nevada Carson Valley Branch! A sincere Thank You to all who helped, participated and dug deep! Eddie Money didn't disappoint - see the short clip from "Take Me Home Tonight" courtesy of our Host Deanna Lucier Ness and her trusty iPhone!

Austinpalooza in TJ's Coral on August 16th to Benefit Austin’s House!  The CVI is proud to be teamed up with GE’s Bently Nevada to sponsor the fourth annual Austinpalooza to benefit Austin’s House, a vitally important emergency children’s shelter.  Lee Rocker, formerly of The Stray Cats, will headline the event starting at 8:30 p.m.  A string of local bands will precede Lee including Lavish Green, Metal Echo, the Bootleggers, Seymour’s Trick Back and The Engineered Disaster.  All-Day tickets (on sale now) with in-and-out access are $25 for adults and $15 for children age 12 and under . . . and all proceeds from the ticket sales go directly to Austin’s House. The event will run from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. Drinks will be available for purchase all day and food will be available for purchase after 5 p.m.

Blood Drive this Coming Tuesday: United Blood Service is conducting their annual All American Blood Drive this coming Tuesday, July 1 here at the CVI. The Bloodmobiles will be in our west lot from noon to 6 p.m. and you can just show up or, better yet, schedule an appointment by calling 800-696-4484 or click here to schedule online. All donors are entered into a drawing for two tickets to the B. J. Thomas Concert in TJ's Corral on Thursday, July 10th.

Old Olds? Ok, feeble attempt at humor. It's actually the National Antique Oldsmobile Club and they are holding their 2014 National Meet here in the Carson Valley over the next few days. Look around the CVI and the area for over 50 pre-1950 Oldsmobiles and Olds enthusiasts from all over the country! Our thanks to local residents Doug and Kathy Hone (that's Doug's Olds on the left) for putting this event together over the past 24 months - their efforts are benefiting the entire community as the group tours around the area Thursday and Friday before the Saturday judging at CVI.
