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.

St. Clair & Community Come Together For Local Cancer Support

The annual St. Clair Winefest was held the first weekend in October, with proceeds benefiting Deming & Luna County Cancer Support for the seventh year in a row. 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, transportation assistance, and general cancer awareness.

This year’s Winefest donation was $9,300.04, almost $4,000 more than last year’s donation of $5,433. Major growth is attributed to the community support that has grown every year since its inception.

“It’s awesome to see how giving the Deming community is,” noted Ray Trejo, Board President of Cancer Support of Deming and Luna County, “We appreciate St. Clair putting this great event together.”

Each year since 2010, we at St. Clair have paired with the organization to donate the proceeds from the annual Winefest, which has become a destination for those looking to have a great time while supporting a great cause. The largest portion of the fundraising stemmed from the Silent Auction, which is full of donated items from local businesses. We also donated admission fees, pink ribbon sales, and vendor fees for the good of the cause.

“It’s amazing to see the support from all the local businesses that donate to the silent auction,” said Joanna Costilla, Patient Advocate from Deming & Luna County Cancer Support. “We’re extremely grateful to St. Clair for hosting this event and the generous amount of work they put into donating to help those in need. We’re also grateful to the community who continually supports the organization and our local cancer warriors.”

“This year we were determined to make this event bigger and better than ever,” said Naomi Morales, St. Clair Event Coordinator. “The community came out in support and had a great time.”  

Reach out to Deming & Luna County Cancer Support at (575) 546-4780 for donations or support. They are located inside the renovated train depot at 217 N Country Club Rd.

Roadrunner Food Bank and St. Clair Winery Working Together to solve hunger

Donation coincides with “Hunger Action Month”

Left: Wally Verdooren, Roadrunner Food Bank’s Chief Development Officer Right: Florent Lescombes, St. Clair Winery Vice-President

Las Cruces, NM – A yearlong effort that started as a desire to help a local cause has paid-off in a big way for a
local New Mexico food bank—and in turn, many New Mexicans in need. St. Clair Winery announced a donation
of $8,328 for the local non-profit, Roadrunner Food Bank, though a unique partnership. The announcement
comes just in time for “Hunger Action Month,” which is a time for Americans to stand together and take action
to fight hunger by donating or volunteering.
Through the partnership, formed in early 2016, St. Clair Winery pledged to donate $1 per bottle sold of their
new release wine, ‘Bistro Red.’ The Roadrunner Food Bank logo is prominently placed on the wine label to help
raise awareness around the issue of ‘food insecurity’ in New Mexico, and show the monetary support provided
for the cause.
“We distribute five meals for every dollar,” said Wally Verdooren, Roadrunner Food Bank’s Chief Development
Officer, “this means over forty thousand meals are made possible through this gift, and we thank St. Clair
Winery for it.”
In Dona Ana County alone, Roadrunner Food Bank supplies many known food pantries such as Casa de
Peregrinos, El Caldito Soup Kitchen, Salvation Army and many others who contribute toward the initiative to
solve hunger in New Mexico. And it doesn’t stop there.
“We have soup kitchens, shelters, churches and other affiliated distribution partners in every county in New
Mexico,” explained Verdooren. “In addition, we do an average of 150 mobile food pantries per month, where
we bring a traveling food pantry to areas in-need, both big cities and rural areas alike.”
Roadrunner Food Bank’s mission complements the deeply embedded family-values and community mindset of
St. Clair Winery and its founders.
“Our goal was to find a way to make an impact locally,” said St. Clair Winery Vice-President, Florent Lescombes.
“We chose to partner with the food bank specifically because they impact those in-need across the entire state.”
Melody Wattenbarger, president and CEO of Roadrunner Food Bank said, “Partnerships like this one help us
extend our ability to reach more of our hungry neighbors. As one of the hungriest states in the country, every
dollar we raise helps in our mission to end hunger.”
Each of the St. Clair Winery locations in Deming, Albuquerque, Farmington and Las Cruces have the Bistro Red
wine available for purchase. Many New Mexico grocers—who are also Roadrunner Food Bank contributors, such
as Albertson’s, Fiesta Foods, Toucan Market, and others—are also retailing the uniquely labeled wine.
