This is a fund raising campaign for Musicians in Sonoma County who lost literally everything.  And there are a LOT of them.   I am a musician here in Sonoma County and play in 2 bands (The Zins and The Melt ), and I can tell you these folks REALLY need your help.  They lost everything.

My name is Jeff Stevenson and I'm the CEO of VinoPRO here in Santa Rosa (my linkedIn profile is here )and I have been running my company here for over 10 years and probably worked with many of you all at Netscape, NetManage or VitalSigns or helped you when I was the founder and president of the Porsche Racing Club  several years ago and now I'm asking for you help.  I can promise you that literally EVERY  dollar you donate will go to these folks and help them get back on their feet.  It will buy them new equipment so they can earn their living again.  It will buy gas so they can get to thier gigs.  It might even buy them a burger or two because they have to eat...

I had a major stroke in April, and I can't work more than a few hours a day, but I'm happy to spend my rehab time helping as many of these folks as I can.  Please donate NOW!!

I tried to find a 501c non-profit for this purpose, but there just isnt one.  This is the next best thing.

Below is just one of these devastating stories told by Luis Garcia in his own words.

Before fire

After fire

Luis' story and more pictures.  Luis Garcia and his wife lost EVERYTHING

This amazing drone video gives you a sense of the massive scale of the destruction to Luis' neighborhood.  It looks like a nuclear bomb went off.  Street after street of complete and utter desolation.  

I've been evacuated twice now, once Monday and again Tuesday.  The nightmare isnt over yet. It's going to take several years and the support of people like you for us to rebuild these lives. 

Please donate anything you can, even if it's only $25 like my mom did.  It's something and it all adds up and it will make a difference.

We all appreciate it immensely.
