The California Correctional Institution (CCI) Baker to Vegas Team grilled tacos for a good cause on July 21 at the Bowe Ranch in Tehachapi. The ranch hosted, “Honor on the Mountain,” a barrel racing event with proceeds donated to the Wounded Heroes Fund.
The fund is a nonprofit service organization for veterans and their families affected by the war on terror. The goal of the Wounded Heroes Fund is to help veterans make a healthy transition to civilian life through support and appreciation. All proceeds raised by the Wounded Heroes Fund stays locally to help and support veterans within the local communities.
CCI Baker to Vegas Co-Captain C. Hernandez said that a portion of the proceeds were donated to The Wounded Heroes Fund as well as collecting the entry fees for the Baker to Vegas team.
