Deborahs 100 Gift - Rancho La Puerta Learn about our health and safety protocols.

Deborah’s greatest gift is your friendship

She respectfully requests no other.
Should you wish to acknowledge her milestone with a tax deductible donation, the

Deborah Szekely 100th Birthday Fund

is newly established to plant trees throughout the Tecate community in her honor.
Her heart’s desire is to purchase a water truck, a cost of $80,000 or more, to ensure that the trees thrive and cast their protective shade over the community that has given her so much.
