Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Cinco de Mayo Golf Committee has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Annual Cinco de Mayo Golf Classic, which would have been held on Friday, May 7, 2021. Although we cannot enjoy our usual day of golf, food, drink and camaraderie, we hope you will consider making a cash donation to the Cinco de Mayo Golf Committee in 2021.
Napa County and California Human Development have done an outstanding job of keeping our migrant farmworkers safe and healthy in the past year, but it has come at a cost. In addition to utilizing funds to retrofit the Centers to allow for social distancing during the pandemic, the County and CHD have had to limit the population of the Centers to 50% capacity. Because the rent from farmworkers represents 50% of the Centers’ operating revenue, this reduced population has resulted in a significant reduction in our income.
We are aware that many businesses and people in Napa Valley are struggling with the effects of the pandemic and resulting economic downturn, and we sincerely hope that you, your employees, and businesses have remained healthy, viable and safe. If you are able, we hope you will find a way to donate to the Cinco de Mayo Committee this year.
Please note that Cinco de Mayo Golf, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and our Tax ID# is 46-3707917.
We hope to see you again in 2022 on the links at Silverado, but in the meantime, thank you for your consideration. For the hundreds of people who continue to use our Farmworker Centers each year, it makes a world of difference.
The annual Cinco de Mayo Golf Classic is the only fundraising event in Napa Valley to be exclusively dedicated to the needs of migrant farmworkers. It provides funds for a number of vital projects at Napa County’s three publicly owned Farmworker Housing Centers that are not covered in the County’s Farmworker Housing operational budget. These include items such as capital building repairs, commercial kitchen equipment, beds, lockers, landscaping supplies, as well as health and social services including work assistance and leadership training. Migrant farmworkers pay $13 per night to stay at the Centers, which includes a shared room and three meals per day except Sunday, hot showers and laundry facilities. Each Center has 60 beds. The Cinco de Mayo Golf Classic is organized by the Napa Valley Farmworker Committee and Cinco de Mayo Golf, Inc. and made possible through the generous underwriting and longtime support of many individuals, corporations and organizations.
