Tesoro Winery in Old Town Temecula, CA, is known for their spirit of giving and community participation so it’s no surprise they are once more reaching out to help those in need.
On Sunday, March 21, 2010, from noon to 4:00 PM, special $8 tastings will be offered. All tasting fees and 10 % of wine sales for the day will be donated to Catholic Charities San Bernardino/Riverside Homeless Prevention Services.
Co- owner Buzz Olson invites guests to stay on past 4 PM to, “Enjoy a spirit filled performance and a glass of wine with special musical guest and personal friend Tom Booth (composer/musician/ recording artist) at 5 PM.”
We’ve been very blessed to be able to keep a roof over our heads and our winery doors open during this terrible downturn in the economy. It’s a miracle, really and we are grateful” shares Kimberly Olson, co-owner of the winery. ” We feel strongly that we should give back what we have received, so we decided to have a whole day devoted to the less fortunate in our area that are struggling to keep their homes. So we’re sharing the wine and hoping to help.”
The causes of homelessness come in many different colors. Loss of job , low income , an increasing cost of living, lack of family and/ or community support, and mental illness, in tandem or separate, present major challenges to obtaining permanent housing.
Catholic Charities San Bernardino/Riverside , celebrating their 30th anniversary in March, works at the root levels of homelessness to transform the lives of men, women and children. In addition to receiving shelter, residents work with case managers to address and overcome the factors contributing to their homelessness. Through counseling, education, job training and support, those who were once homeless prepare for independent futures.
No reservations required.
