Deborahs 100 Gift - Rancho La Puerta

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.

Rancho La Puerta purchased a water truck with the help of your generous donations. With a capacity of 3880 gallons, it will be used to fight fires and water trees we will plant in Tecate.  That leaves our nonprofit Fundación La Puerta without the need to spend donation money on this essential equipment and Deborah’s dream has wheels!  Stay tuned as we partner with schools and neighborhood parks to prepare the ground for planting.
