Save the Basin


There's no dedicated helicopter for Lake Tahoe and the surrounding area. As you can imagine, this would be instrumental in saving the people and places we LOVE from wildfires.

On Wednesday, March 23, 2022 – at our annual company meeting, Shari Chase spontaneously called everyone to action to commit to raising funds for this cause. Between donations from our Realtors and team, plus donation matches from Chase Cares and EKN Development Company the group revitalizing the Tahoe Biltmore we generated $100,000 to contribute towards the cost of needed infrastructure. 


More donations are needed. If you would like to contribute,
please donate online at


Or  by mailing a check with the memo "Helicopter Fund" to:

Tahoe Douglas Fire Protection District
P.O. Box 919
Zephyr Cove, NV 89448


We would love to track our collective effort. If you donate please email your receipt to [email protected]
