ST. CLAIR AND COMMUNITY COME TOGETHER TO SUPPORT CANCER WARRIORS

Just in time for Christmas, the St. Clair Winery team presented a check to Cancer Support of Deming and Luna County from the proceeds of the 8th annual St. Clair Winefest. The local non-profit provides a variety of support to cancer patients in the community. They also provide outreach services for general education, early detection, screening programs, and general
cancer awareness.


“We provide transportation assistance to cancer patients within Deming and Luna County” explains Patient Advocate, Joanna Costilla. “We have vans that we offer to transport patients to and from out-of-town appointments at no charge. We also have a voucher program that can also help defray the cost of gas for qualifying patients who drive themselves.”


“Year after year, our amazing community comes together to support this local cause,” said Lora Robinson, General Manager at St. Clair Winery & Tasting Room. “We’re grateful we are able to continue to carry on this tradition to benefit local cancer warriors and thankful for the continued support from our guests and employees.”


This year’s Winefest donation was $8,407.10, which has been credited to both attendance and silent auction donations collected from local businesses.

Deming & Luna County Cancer Support can be reached at (575) 546-4780

To show our gratitude to the brave men and women who have served, the participating locations will offer a complimentary meal as a small thank you for their sacrifice.

A special Veterans Day menu with a selection of items to choose from will be available to all active duty military and veterans dining-in during normal business hours on Veterans Day.


“When someone takes the oath of enlistment, the sacrifice they make is immeasurable,” said CEO, Brandon Young. “We are grateful for those who commit to serve
 on behalf of all Americans.”


The special Veterans Day menu includes a selection of the most popular items at each location, not including alcohol or gratuity.
To claim a complimentary meal at St. Clair Winery and Bistro or Hervé Wine Bar, veterans and enlisted service members simply need to show proof of military service. This can include a U.S. Uniformed Services ID Card, U.S. Uniformed Services Retired ID Card, current Leave and Earnings Statement (LES), Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty (DD214), veteran organizations card or by proudly wearing their uniform.

St. Clair Winefest 2018

Cancer Support & St. Clair team up for Winefest

We are pleased to announce the 24th annual Winefest, benefiting Cancer Support of Deming and Luna County for the eighth year in a row.

Festivities are slated for Saturday, October 6th from 12:00-9: 00 pm and continuing on Sunday, October 7th from 12:00-6: 00 pm. Enjoy a large selection of food vendors, arts & crafts vendors, upbeat live music and dancing, a silent auction, tours, cork pulling & grape stomping competitions, fun activities for the kids, and a wide selection of local New Mexico wines and craft beer.

Admission at the gate is only $5 and includes a complimentary wine glass. Free admission is offered to all active-duty military and law enforcement, as well as those with promotional free admission tickets, although donations will be accepted at the gate.

“This event has continually grown to be one of our largest fundraisers,” said Joanna Costilla, Patient Advocate at Cancer Support of Deming & Luna County. “The money raised has a great impact on the lives of many local cancer warriors. When you’re fighting cancer, the last thing anyone should be concerned with is how you’ll afford getting to your treatment.”

We will donate 100% of admission, ribbon donations, vendor fees, and silent auction to the local non-profit. Last year’s donation was a substantial $9,300 which helped offset the cost of travel for many local cancer patients who often attend treatments many miles away.

“We’re excited to be continuing this great partnership,” said Lora Robinson, Tasting Room Manager. “It supports a great, local cause and we really have a fun time with it.”

Live music provided by local favorite “Caliente” will be featured on Saturday evening, with a variety of other popular bands with a great selection of tunes throughout the weekend.
