The 17th annual Vino y Chocolate was a festive gathering of many community members with such a purpose. Dozens brought children’s gifts and gathered at the Waterfront events center in Lakeside, CO to benefit the Latina Safehouse of Denver.
Along with delicious wines, pastries and food attendees were treated to an array of exquisite table settings each uniquely designed for the holidays. Several of the tables were part of a silent auction to help raise funds.
The event was hosted by Romaine Pacheco, Sr. Alicia Cuaron and the Teamsters Local 455.
Latina Safehouse works to meet the needs of Latina Domestic Violence victims by removing barriers through culturally and linguistically competent services through advocacy and education.
