Community

ChristinaTahoeRimtrails_smSpin Game employees are fortunate enough to be living in the Biggest Little City in the World, a city full of culture and diversity. In Nevada’s early days, men traveled to the Silver State to strike it rich, today Reno is known for its for world-class entertainment, gambling, and its close proximity (45 miles) to Lake Tahoe. This amazing location puts Reno close to 18 ski resorts and 50 golf courses. In the past few years large companies have decided to make Reno their home to take advantage of the state’s desirable tax structure. What do we think is the best part of Reno? The 300 days of sunshine!

We are dedicated to our community by supporting a variety of programs throughout the Truckee Meadows that focus on arts and culture, education, environment, and health and human services.

Spin Games LLC and affiliate Sunshine Tahoe proudly supports the following organizations: Art in Bloom, Bear League, Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful, Pony Express-Nevada Division, Reno Chamber of Commerce, Reno Rodeo, Tahoe Family Solutions, Tahoe Rim Trail Challenge, Trails & Vistas, Truckee Donner Land Trust, Truckee Historical Haunted Tour, University of Nevada, Reno, Reynolds School of Journalism.

BEAR League

The BEAR League is a completely volunteer; community based not-for-profit organization in the Lake Tahoe Basin, Truckee and beyond, committed to keeping bears safe and wild in their natural habitat. Too many bears now believe they can roam neighborhoods and even come into individual homes, as this is what they have been told by humans reacting inappropriately during bear encounters, which often results in the death of a bear. Spin Games is proud to help educate those living in or visiting the beautiful Sierra Nevada.
