A Toast to 3 Area Charities: Giving Back

Cinnamon Shore Wine Auction Dinner Helps 3 Groups Doing Noteworthy Work in South Texas ~

On Sat., March 25, 2023, the first annual Cinnamon Shore Wine Auction Dinner is dedicating all proceeds to three, highly deserving charity groups. Featuring premier wines from small-batch winery Dakota Shy of Napa Valley, this exclusive evening invites 35 couples to experience highly rated wines paired with a special tasting menu at Lisabella's, along with one-of-a-kind auction items. (Check Ticket Availability Now). 

 Meet the three charities selected for the inaugural evening of food, wine, bidding fun, and more!

Helping Hands Pantry

Housed in the Community Presbyterian Church in the heart of Port Aransas, this pantry benefits Port Aransas families with emergency food and local school children with food assistance.

It serves clients in need by providing food twice a month, meeting the needs of families who qualify and serving the school community with meals and food-assistance at school events.

New Life Refuge 

Based in Corpus Christi, this dedicated ministry provides specialized, long-term, therapeutic care in a home setting to victims of childhood sex trafficking in South Texas. Its three-pronged approach features the Refuge, a facility where young people live and recover; Awareness through Education, helping the region understand the problem of sex trafficking in Texas; Partnerships, working with other ministries and churches to provide prayer and other support.

A total of seven homes are planned from the Home of Hope campus, serving 42 residents in need of care. The education arm has reached 18,000 people, sounding the alarm and soliciting aid for these children in need.

The Purple Door

Serving a 12-county area of South Texas, this Corpus Christi-based non-profit offers free services to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.

For 45 years, the non-profit organization has served as a women's shelter with confidential aid to women in need of a place to stay, counseling, legal services, and more. It educates the community, as well, with campaigns such as Teen Dating Violence Awareness & Prevention Month in February and other presentations, seminars, and pop-up discussions sessions about this sensitive topic.
