13Jul2012 Lydia Tillman on Dateline NBC July 13th
Casa Mono's former Wine Director, Lydia Tillman, was the victim of an unspeakable act of violence on July 4th, 2011. Her story is going to be featured on this week's episode of Dateline NBC, Friday night at 9 pm.

She bravely escaped a burning building after being subjected to agonizing assault and arson. Her courage is truly an inspiration. Because of Lydia's strength, she has saved many others that this could have happened to. Lydia deserves the best chance possible for a new life, and we can help by assisting with her medical and personal bills.

The Tillman family is grateful for any gift to help cover those costs and to help Lydia rebuild her life after losing all of her personal belongings in the fire. You can contribute through the link below.
