Miranda Family Benefit

Wine in 2 Water is partnering with the artist team of Billick Rock Art and Heritage School, as well as the families and friends of the Miranda Family to support the creation of a Miranda Family Memorial bench. You are undoubtedly aware of the tragic accident that took the Miranda family from the only surviving son, Eden.

Please take a moment and read the letter describing the purpose of the bench.

Won’t you please take a moment and make a small contribution to help in the healing of not just a small boy left alone, but his surviving friends, school community, and family that are struggling to understand this tragic event.

Thank You,

Curtis Juran President, Wine in 2 Water

To Whom It May Concern:

The recent Miranda family tragedy deeply affected Heritage Elementary’s students and staff, as well as others in our community. The loss of Stephanie, Jose Luis, Irvin, along with their parents and unborn brother, has been a tremendous blow. We are extremely thankful that our 4th grader, Eden, is recovering so well.

As part of our efforts to heal and move forward, Heritage Elementary is building a memorial bench as a tribute to those who lost their lives. The classes of Stephanie, Jose Luis, and Eden, along with classmates of Irvin at Lodi Middle, will create ceramic pieces to be incorporated into the bench. These pieces will be reminders of the children’s favorite things. For example, Stephanie’s classmates will make butterflies, her favorite creature. We are also inviting first responders and others affected by the tragic accident to participate in the creation of ceramic pieces for the bench. In the spring, the actual bench will be assembled and placed, along with some complementary landscaping, at the front of the school.

Our goal is to raise $4,500, to cover the estimated costs for materials and labor. Any money raised that is over the cost of the memorial bench will go to Eden's trust. The work will be done in conjunction with artist Donna Billick, who previously helped create the Earthkeepers bench and wall mandala at our school. We would appreciate any donation that you would be able to provide to assist us fulfill the dream of this project.


Please join us for an afternoon of music, art and wine and help save children's lives. This Wine in 2 Water event benefits Living Water International by providing clean water wells to children who don't have access to clean water. Please share, join us and help save lives.
