Join us for a Virtual Evening filled with Excellent Wines and Gourmet Charcuterie Foods from our own amazing Temecula Valley – our First Annual 1-hour virtual fundraising event.

Each participant will receive a custom Charcuterie and Wine Box two days before our event. On the night of the event, simply join us on Youtube. This evening promises to be exciting and just plain fun.

In one hour you will learn how to create your own amazing charcuterie tray by Chef Leah DiBernardo with E.A.T. in Temecula. Pairing that will be a conversation with Mick Wilson of Wilson Creek Winery, COO and Sommelier certified winemaker on how to pair your wine to your own personal palate. And no virtual evening would be complete without some magic. You will not only be entertained by Chicago’s finest Master of Trickery Magic but you will be given a first-hand lesson in a card trick that you can amaze your own family at the Thanksgiving Table this Year!

With Covid changing the landscape of fundraising we are encouraged to see so many people participating in year-end giving. The programs at CMOH and Rancho Damacitas are looking to make this year one in which our citizens in need will be helped and supported. Expect to be amazed!

This will be a fundraising event that is no cost on the front end but this time of year our needs are great and we need your help!

We Need Your Help

2020 Champions Fall Classic Event continues to build momentum. More leaders and organizations are stepping forward to join this community event and to provide assistance to struggling single moms and families in our community.

As a major part of the event, community groups and churches have been asked to join in the effort. Pastor Rick Malec, Temecula United Methodist Church and Garry Parker, Educator and Water expert, will chair the Church and Community Committee and will encourage others to plan and conduct activities throughout the weeks leading up to the community celebration of giving on November 21, to raise money that will support vital needs in our community.

Pastor Malec said, “The goal is to get people of all ages in the community to organize and create fundraising events to support Rancho Damacitas and Community Mission of Hope.”

Garry Parker commented, “We just need to have you contact us so we can assist you in planning and conducting your activity. Your participation is important and you can be assured that your effort will make a difference.”

We all have been challenged during the last 8 months. However, to the most vulnerable, these additional hardships have hurt them the most. The 2020 Champions Fall Classic Event will allow everyone an opportunity to participate and make a difference. We will have a community celebration of giving on Saturday morning, November 21st at the Promenade Mall in Temecula from 10am – 2pm. The festivities and fun will provide an opportunity to acknowledge and to celebrate the caring spirit of our area.

We will include your event in our website 4kidsfirst.org calendar. Everyone can be a champion so stay in touch for updates and event details. Everything you do will be helping struggling families and children in our community.

The Start of the Champions Classic Weekend Race ... and they are off

Rancho Damacitas is excited to announce the 2020 Champions Fall Classic Weekend. In this new environment, Rancho Damacitas is still working to make a difference in the lives of their current clients and the community of families they support.

Chris Close, President of Murrieta Development and Chairman of Rancho Damacitas Children & Family Services, announced today the very exciting plans for a fall full of activities. “The past months have been very challenging for us all and the plan is to include everyone in our effort to raise support for many of those who have suffered the most.”

Rancho Damacitas has been active in the Temecula Valley for 38 years helping children and families as they struggle with life challenges to bring hope and opportunity to imagine a better future.

For the last six years Rancho Damacitas has hosted a successful fundraising luncheon called the Champions Luncheon to raise support for the 100% donor supported service. The 12 acre campus in Wine Country originally used for Foster Youth was adapted to become Empowerment Village to provide housing for struggling single mothers with young children as they work to get ahead in a healthy way. In addition, the local charity has a home for Emancipated Foster Youth, as well as, a Scholarship Program called the New Heights Scholarships to support Former Foster Youth and the struggling moms residing at Empowerment Village.

Julie Ngo, past Chairman of Rancho Damacitas will be leading the charge as Chairman of the multi day, multi community events. Ngo said ”this is so exciting to see things coming together. There will be other activities throughout the weekend of November 20-22, 2020, culminating with the Virtual Champions Event on November 20, 2020. We expect many activities and events throughout the fall by businesses, churches, youth groups and families. We will be releasing more details regarding events throughout the fall of activities and fund raisers. All proceeds will go to benefit Rancho Damacitas.”

Ngo continued, by saying  “the need to be appropriate and safe has required some very creative thinking so the annual Champions Luncheon will be virtual and take place at several sponsored homes in and around Riverside County. All events will adapt to required state and local standards.”
