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.”
