It was a beautiful day at the Holy Family Parish Hall Saturday, December 2nd as the 19th annual Vino y Chocolate event was celebrated. Table tops were magnificently decorated, food and wine were plentiful and attendees contributed to the abundance of gifts under the Christmas tree.
Vino y Chocolate was founded by Sister Alicia Cuaron and Romaine Pacheco with the intention of celebrating the holiday season with the community while raising money to benefit the Latina Safehouse. Attendees either brought gifts or had an opportunity to make a donation to help the women and children who have sought refuge at the Latina Safehouse.
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.
Many thanks to Sister Alicia, Romaine and all the community members and sponsors that support this event every year.
