Lost in Tubbs Fire: Home & Business

Created October 11, 2017

Early on Monday morning, the Tubbs fire ravaged Calistoga & Santa Rosa before spreading to other parts of Sonoma County.  The fires spread so quickly, many residents had no option but to pile into their cars & drive, leaving their homes & businesses to burn.

Lynette & Michael O'Brien were 2 of these residents; Sunday night they were serving their guests their famous Prime Rib at their restaurant, Cricklewood. Cricklewood has been a Santa Rosa favorite for 42 years; but by Monday morning, it was completely destroyed. In addition to this tragedy, this hard-working couple also lost their home; they were only able to save the family cats & grab some clothes before leaving everything behind & driving to safety.

In one night they lost everything, yet Lynette & Michael's first thought was for their 24 staff members who no longer have an income & for their guests in Cricklewood's reservation book who may have no way of knowing their anniversary dinners can no longer take place at the restaurant. I was working with them on Cricklewood's social media pages & was in direct contact with Lynette after the fire; it was truly admirable how selfless & grateful she was when many people would have simply given up hope. Even after suffering deep personal losses, Lynette & Michael cared for others before themselves.

This campaign is to help these Santa Rosa restaurateurs until they can get back on their feet; with no income, their primary concern is for the bare necessities. Any money raised here will help them buy groceries, cat food, toiletries, and carry them until they can find a new place to call home. Their need is immediate and any amount will help greatly. Please consider donating to this deserving couple.
