Temecula, CA – Rancho Damacitas Children & Family Services has recently been nominated for three major awards demonstrating its excellent reputation in assisting foster youth in Temecula Valley. Rancho Damacitas is nominated for the 2016 Stars of the Valley CFC Charity Award, and the Temecula Valley Chamber of Commerce’s 2015 Service/Charitable Organization of the Year Award. Two of Rancho Damacitas’ staff – Kristi Piatkowski, Director of Development, and Sarah Bautista, Clinical and Program Director- are also nominated for the Murrieta Chamber of Commerce’s 40 Under 40 Awards.

The Stars of the Valley event is a Golden Globes style benefit that helps to raise money for Charity for Charity, a local non-profit organization that grants wishes to three individuals each year that suffer from a life-threatening illness or traumatic injury. The event also celebrates individuals and organizations that make a difference in their community. The event takes place on February 6th at South Coast Winery Resort and Spa.

The Temecula Valley Chamber of Commerce’s Awards Gala takes place on February 21, 2016 at Pechanga Resort and Casino. In this 50th year celebration, Temecula Valley Chamber of Commerce honors exceptional businesses, charitable organizations and individuals.

The Murrieta Chamber of Commerce’s 40 Under 40 Awards will be held at the Murrieta Spectrum on April 16, 2016. The Chamber started the program to recognize young movers and shakers in the community who go above and beyond to make their communities a better place. Both Kristi Piatkowski and Sarah Bautista of Rancho Damacitas will be honored that evening for their exceptional work with our foster youth.
