BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - Eighty people got to enjoy a nice Christmas dinner Saturday evening, all thanks to a Paradise Facebook group and a Chico restaurant.


Friends from “Paradise Adopt-a-Family” and “Umwined Kitchen & Bar” hosted this event.


Kids got a free toy and guests could eat a variety of items including a turkey, mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce.


The organizer says a friend named “Jack” had all this food left so they decided to reach out to the owner of “Unwined.”


“I reached out to ‘Unwined.’ Frank the owner of ‘Unwined’ was gracious enough to cook all the food and host all the families. And from that, a bunch of people started jumping and donating skateboards and toys and clothes, so this turned out to be a huge event and it’s been amazing,” said April Kelly, the organizer and a Camp Fire survivor.


The event ends at 7:30 p.m.

A fire weather watch has been issued from 1pm Monday to 11am Wednesday in the Valley and foothills due to dry and gusty conditions. We'll warm up next week but next weekend is looking much much cooler and wet.
