“In 2005, a small group of community volunteers, Las Madrinas (The Godmothers), gathered to organize the 1st Rebozo Festival; a benefit event established to raise funds for Ventura County non-profit charitable organizations focusing on the cultural, social and educational needs of the community. This unique cultural event promotes the rich heritage of our area by highlighting the colorful Mexican rebozo (shawl) as our theme.

“Thanks to the generosity of our many sponsors and supporters, we have raised thousands of dollars each year for numerous worthy non-profit organizations in our local area.  Past recipients include the Heart 2 Heart Program, Inlakech Cultural Center, United Farm Workers Freeze Relief Fund, the Oxnard College Women’s Re-entry Program, the Ventura County Chapter of Parents of Murdered Children, Educational and Employment Resources Development/Café on A, Central Coast Alliance United for a Sustainable Economy (CAUSE), and Centro Mujer. Other notable recipients include the performing arts programs (Mariachi classes) for the Oxnard Union High School District and the United Way Community Action Fund.”
