BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - Paradise native and singer Amber Sauer has organized a benefit concert to help aid victims of the Camp Fire.
Even after fleeing the flames herself with her mom, and not knowing the status of their home, she wanted to give back to the community and raise money for victims.
"In situations like this, everyone sort of reverts back to default," Sauer said. "Default for me is what I know how to do and that's music, and that's singing. So I think everyone is pitching in and doing their part and doing what it is that they know what to do."
Sauer got in connection with Chico Sessions about her idea for this event, which is also being sponsored by KZFR 90.1.
"We want everyone to feel comfortable and welcome," she said. "This is literally going to be a place for evacuees to come and get their mind off of what's currently happening and receive some healing possibly."
All evacuees or those directly connected to the effects of the Camp Fire will be let in for free. They will be accepting donations at the door.
Where: Alex Marshall Studios (1095 Nelson Street, Chico)
Doors open at 6 p.m.
Event starts at 7 p.m.
