Sonoma State University will be hosting two unique fire recovery events to take place on Aug. 3 and Aug. 4 in Weill Hall. The events will be centered around the sharing of individual and communal stories related to the devastating 2017 North Bay fires, capping off with a performance on Saturday by legendary country artist Brad Paisley and acclaimed actress Bonnie Hunt.
Since the expenses of the weekend events are being covered by generous donations from community sponsors, 100% of the ticket revenues will go to the Resilience Fund, a long-term relief fund overseen by the Community Foundation Sonoma County. The funds will be dedicated to first-responders who suffered losses in the fires, including the many who lost their homes while helping others.
Friday, Aug. 3, 2018 – 7:30 pm
Sonoma County author, educator, and noted storyteller Brandon Spars will host “Thicker Than Smoke: An Evening of Community Storytelling”. The evening will feature 10 or more local individuals sharing a variety of tales, both heartbreaking and inspiring, of what transpired during those horrific hours of Oct 8 and Oct. 9 when the fires swept through the region.
Saturday, Aug. 4, 2018 – 7:30 pm
Join us for a benefit concert at Weill Hall + Lawn featuring country music superstar Brad Paisley and his co-host acclaimed actress Bonnie Hunt. The evening will include several local stories interwoven with music.
