Phengaroune Family Fire Relief 2017

Chan is one in a million.  He has the ability to befriend everyone he comes in contact with and has a huge bond with his coworkers.  He is the kind of friend, coworker, husband and father everybody wants by their side. He has always done what it takes to help and support everyone around him whether it was of a monetary nature or just by lending an ear when you needed it.  He is one of the best husbands and father there is, always placing his family above everything.

During the Santa Rosa fire Chan awoke to the smell of smoke thinking it was a neighbor's fireplace and went back to sleep only to be awakened minutes later by a neighbor letting him know they were being evacuated from their Coffey Park neighborhood. Without hesitation Chan collected what meant the most; his wife Thyda, two children Liam 4 and Amaya 2 and the family pets only to learn soon after that everything left behind was completely destroyed. 

Instead of giving in to despair Chan did the only thing he knows; pushing forward and insisting on keeping things as “normal” as possible for his family. He returned to work so that he can get his family back into a home. For his coworkers and friends he has always shown love and support and we would like to assist him.

This fundraiser has been organized by friends of Chan. Please join us and consider donating to directly support him and his family, who are dealing with the devastating effects of the Northern California fires.
