We are thrilled to announce the 12th annual edition of our highlight event of the year and a true landmark gathering of wine enthusiasts in DC.
The Annual Charity Wine Tasting is an excellent opportunity to contribute to our fundraising efforts while enjoying Argentina’s best wines, including award-winning traditional Malbecs, fruity Torrontés, and hearty Cabernet Sauvignons, paired with delicious hors d’oeuvres from Pampa’s Fox Catering. As every year, the event will feature access to a raffle drawing to win the reds, whites, and rosés you will fall in love with!
The proceeds from this event will be used to repair and reconditioning of the Day Center Hogar de día Calzada, which is part of the National Program “Un Niño, Un Futuro” (One Child, One Future,) initiative managed by the NGO CILSA ONG Por la inclusión.
This day center is located within the soup kitchen La Sonrisa de los niños, Rafael Calzada, Buenos Aires.
The program “Un Niño, Un Futuro” was born in 2001 due to the critical economic situation. Through its day centers, it provides a space for education, recreation, and support for children and teenagers from low-income families, with or without disabilities. The purpose is to raise awareness of their rights, and to create a space of belonging and comprehensive learning. More than 1,100 children receive daily attention and support in 31 day centers throughout the seven cities where CILSA is operational: Rosario, Santa Fe, Córdoba, Buenos Aires, Mendoza, La Plata, and Mar del Plata.
Nowadays, Hogar de día Calzada receives some 70 children per day in two shifts, morning and afternoon. The premises are in precarious conditions, reason for which the project includes the improvement and repair of the ceiling, kitchen, bathroom, play room, and exterior bars, in addition to the purchase of equipment. The estimated budget is ARS 297,001, and the project is expected to be completed between November 2019 and March 2020.
Join a great cause by buying your tickets today and prepare for a taste of Argentina!
