The Shane McConkey Legacy Gala
Join Bonfire for a Studio 54-themed Gala evening to raise money for the Shane McConkey Foundation, Make-A-Wish and the Truckee public school district. Shane McConkey was a pro skier, a geek, a goofball, a movie star and a guy who believed we could make the world a better place. Most of all, he cared about protecting our children, animals and the planet. Since 2011, the Shane McConkey Foundation has donated over $80,000 to local and national charities to continue his legacy.

Making At Risk Kids Risk Takers
Join Bonfire in supporting Wender-Weis Foundation for Children and Fit Kids at a fun-filled, activity-driven family event at Stanford Stadium. Athletes, coaches and nutrition experts will be on hand to teach kids the importance of exercise and healthy eating habits all while having a blast.
Wender Weis Foundation for Children (WWFC) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to improve children's self-esteem and self-confidence. We strive to do this by funding existing programs, and creating new programs, that provide children living in underserved communities with the gift of encouragement and self-confidence. When children believe in themselves and have others believe in them, they are able to develop the emotional, social, and physical skills that allow them to lead healthy, motivated, and inspired lives.
Fit Kids' mission is to promote a healthy active lifestyle among children in underserved communities through high quality youth and fitness programs and nutrition tips. By offering increased opportunities for physical activity among children, we hope to inspire an early love of sports and fitness that will serve as the foundation for a healthy way of life.
