Corazón de Vida: Dinner and Mezcal to benefit Rancho de los Niños orphanage
June 18, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Join Corazón de Vida for a Dinner & Mezcal Tasting for Rancho de los Niños!
A Valle de Guadalupe orphanage that Corazon de Vida has been supporting shut its doors a couple months ago, leaving 22 teenage girls without a home. Jorge and Ely Fonseca, the directors of nearby orphanage Rancho de los Ninos (formely Casa de Paz), agreed to take the displaced girls into their orphanage. As a result, Rancho de los Ninos has grown overnight from 65 to 87 children. Thanks to very generous donors, money has already been raised to transform an empty shell of a building on the property into proper dorms which will house the girls.
The San Diego Chapter of Corazon de Vida is actively raising funds to help make the dorms fully functional by helping to supply it with all the essentials, from bedding and mattresses, to kitchen appliances, living room furniture, curtains, and more.
Please join Corazoón de Vida in helping to provide a safe place for these girls to sleep!
