Dotty Hardberger CA Fire Survivor


      Late in the night, on October 8th, fire swept through Santa Rosa, CA with such intensity and speed that entire neighborhoods were leveled.  Our friend Dotty Hardberger's precious home was reduced to smoldering rubble.  Dotty's traumatic loss leaves her badly shaken and without so much as a washcloth to her name.  Now she needs to rebuild her life.  With an overwhelming number of tasks ahead, Dotty is taking an unpaid leave of absence for a couple of months from her long time job as art director at Mezzetta. 
      Please help her through this bridge period, as she tries to find housing, furniture, transportation, and peace of mind.  Monetary donations of any amount are greatly appreciated.

      Dotty has been my sweet, kind and selfless friend for 35 years, since the early eighties in San Francisco.  Now it is my turn to give back to the woman who has always been the first to offer help and support.  Funds donated will go into a GoFundMe account that Dotty can withdraw from at her own discretion. 
      Please help me get the word out by sharing this post on your Facebook page!
