April #sipsupport beneficiary

During the month of April CUCINA is supporting Promises2Kids as our #sipsupport beneficiary. For every bottle or carafe of CUCINA private label wine sold during April, CUCINA will donate $1 to them!

Promises2Kids is a leading nonprofit organization originally founded over 30 years ago as the Child Abuse Prevention Foundation of San Diego County. Since 1981, Promises2Kids has responded to the needs of foster children and the fight against child abuse and neglect in San Diego County.

Promises2Kids annually provides over 3,300 current and former foster youth in San Diego County with the tools, opportunities, and guidance they need to address the circumstances that brought them into foster care, overcome the difficulties of their past, and grow into healthy, happy and successful adults. Promises2Kids supports these children through our four core programs: Polinsky Children’s Center, Camp Connect, Guardian Scholars and Foster Funds.

The Polinsky Children’s Center was designed as an emergency shelter to better care for these children in need of a loving and nurturing place to heal.

Camp Connect reunites brothers and sisters who are separated from each other while in foster care. The monthly camp activities are often the only opportunity siblings have to spend quality time together.

Guardian Scholars supports our foster youth who wish to obtain a university, community college, or trade school education. This vital resource provides students with the financial assistance and support to fulfill their dreams of attaining higher education.

Foster Funds includes money for The Something Special Fund, The Birthday Club and various Community Drives to collect items school children need throughout the school year.

Festa Della Donna is March 8

Festa della Donna is celebrated in Italy on March 8th, also International Women’s Day. Each year CUCINA urbana and CUCINA enoteca Del Mar acknowledges this special occasion with a month-long celebration. We feature unique food and beverage selections, special events and the sale of our signature yellow t-shirt – all to raise money for the Center for Community Solutions.

History of Festa Della Donna

This civil holiday was born as a political event, and over the years blended into the culture of many countries. In some celebrations, the day had since lost its political flavor and become simply an occasion for men to express their love to the women around them.

Women’s Day has its roots in two events that took place outside of Italy. On March 8, 1857, a strike by garment workers in New York led to the formation of the first women’s union in the United States. Sixty years later Russian women led a strike calling for “bread and peace” during the horrors of World War I and the Russian Revolution. Then in 1945, the Union of Italian Women declared that this special date, March 8, should be set aside to celebrate womanhood across the country.

In Italy on the 8th of March, the symbol of the day is the yellow mimosa and expression of female solidarity. The exact origin of the custom is lost, but it is said to have started in Rome after World War II. Men began giving the mimosa to their partners, friends and co-workers. Families gave these blossoming branches to their significant others, colleagues, mothers and sisters. The scent of mimosas filled the air and reminded everyone not only of the day’s significance, but also that spring is near.

While men show all their love for women, society as a whole remembers the importance of women, their contribution to the betterment of our society and their sacrifices. On this day, all celebrate their achievements. Cultural demonstrations and political rallies remember the fights women have to endured for their rights and what is still left to do in order to provide every member of society, male or female, equality.
