When asked what it meant to host such a benefit, this is what Brenda Zarate had  to say: There is nothing that touches my heart more than children in need of a loving home. Helping them achieve this dream is the reason that motivated me to co-chair this meaningful event for Family Builders.” 

Guests enjoyed a selection of superb wines from Beyond the Label and Out in the Vineyard and were also treated to delicate hors d’oeuvres, Choco Vogue gourmet chocolates and Chantal Guillon French “macarons”.

We thought if would be appropriate to share this quote: “You have not lived, until you have given something to someone who can never repay you” ~ John Bunyan

You have given and must be proud Brenda Zarate, Jorge Maumer, Alan Morrell and Victor Vargas. Well done!

Special thanks to Luxetigers and Drew Altizer .
