As you may be aware, on the morning of June 27, 2011, Dixon’s Apple Orchard, exclusive growers of the Champagne Apple, and a beloved New Mexico tradition since 1944, was devastated by the Los Conchas Wildfire. The family home, storage facilities and essential equipment were destroyed.
A about a month ago we recieved a call from someone that wanted to help, to do something to help this family. That call started what seems like another wild fire. Individuals, community groups and businesses are coming together to create a fundraising benefit to help a really wonderful family.
Come join us Saturday, August 27th from 12pm to 6 pm at La Tienda for the Benefit for the Mullane Family, owners of the Dixon’s Apple Orchard. Click Here for a google map to La Tienda.
This will be a fun family day for everyone. There will be a Raffle and Silent Auction, put-put golf, horseshoes, games, classic cars, bike rodeo, horse rides for the littler kids, food and drink, music, clowns, yoga, spinning classes, and so much more.
