Casa de Amparo

Casa de Amparo

The San Diego Opera is a major cultural institution in Southern California and Monte De Oro wanted to do its part to support such a leading cultural icon.

Monte De Oro Winery, one of Temecula Valley’s most prestigious vintners, recently donated wine to the San Diego Opera for its annual fundraising gala on January 28 in San Diego. “We donated bottles of wine for the opera’s Wine Raffle,” said Ken Zignorski, Managing Member and General Manager of Monte De Oro Winery. “The San Diego Opera is a major cultural institution in Southern California and Monte De Oro wanted to do its part to support such a leading cultural icon.”    

Additionally, the winery donated a wine tasting certificate for six guests at Monte De Oro Winery to Casa de Amparo in San Marcos, CA. Casa de Amparo is a leader in treating and preventing child abuse and neglect in San Diego County and beyond. The non-profit organization annually serves over 1,000 Casa Kids, from prenatal to 25 years old, as well as over 900 families, through six integrated programs that promote healing, growth and healthy relationships. Though receiving many charity requests during the year, all of which cannot be filled, Monte De Oro does look to help local charities involved with the unfortunate consequences of child abuse and neglect. Casa de Amparo is such a charity in San Diego County, as is The Barbara Sinatra Children’s Center in Coachella Valley.
