Dan Hickman Starting Over Fund

On Monday October 9th at 9 am, Dan Hickman, his wife Michelle, and two kids quickly packed up their car and left their Calistoga, CA home. Dan and his family were lucky to escape the North Bay wildfire, but unfortunately their house was completely destroyed. 

Dan Hickman is my friend and someone that I've worked with for several years as the Area Director of Revenue for Auberge Resorts. Losing his home is hard enough, but Dan is now facing the possibility that the properties he manages could be in danger.  

I'd like to ask for your help , whether it's a financial donation or a meal, to help Dan and his family rebuild. Thanks in advance for your generosity - I know this community has been so great at helping victims of the wildfires. If you have any other suggestions for how you can help, please contact me through GoFundMe.

As an FYI, I will be withdrawing funds the week of 10/16/17 and will give the check to Dan and Michelle personally.
