Team Ponte
Keeping the pace for the kids of Rancho Damacitas
Welcome to Team Ponte's fundraising headquarters. Thank you for your interest in helping to bring hope to abused and neglected kids in Southern California. As our 3rd annual race, Team Ponte members will walk and run in San Diego's Rock and Roll Marathon, Half-Marathon and Relay Race on June 5th to raise much needed funds for Rancho Damacitas, a Temecula based 24-hour recovery home for abused and neglected kids.

Located just 3 miles from Ponte Winery, Rancho Damacitas houses 36 children who have been removed from their homes due to abuse or neglect. Since the recession began, Rancho Damacitas has had to reduce staff members to avoid cutting any programs directly related to the kids. They are one of the few remaining children's recovery homes in southwest Riverside county.

Your donation will help Rancho Damacitas meet their monthly financial responsibilities which feed and clothe the children, pay the staff and fund the children's academic and social needs, to name a few.

We appreciate your donation more than you know. Thank you for making a difference in a child's life.
