After the Angora Fire that devestated our community in the summer of 2007, the South Tahoe Association of REALTORS® created a disaster relief fund, facilitated by the El Dorado Community Foundation, to assist our Realtor and Affiliate members who lost their homes in the fire.  We received generous donations from other Associations of Realtors across the country, as well as from individuals.  At the time that the fund was created, we were required to maintain a minimum balance of $5,000.  Due to the length of time that the fund has been held, we were able to recently convert the fund for more general charitable functions, which allowed us to spend the money remaining from the Angora Fire Disaster Relief on building a bridge over a section of trail in that area, for the use of residents and visitors alike.  STAR purchased and donated all of the materials to build the bridge, and the USFS is donating labor in terms of design and work.
