Sonoma Jet Center Fire Relief Fund
Sonoma Jet Center, a premiere aviation services company, is located in the heart of northern California’s Sonoma and Napa wine country. Recent wildfires, fueled by unusually high winds and low humidity, have spread rapidly through much of northern California.
Sonoma Jet Center has grown to have over 40 amazing team members and countless customers that we consider our airport family. As of now, at least three of our team members experienced total loss of their home and belongings. In an effort to help these colleagues and our airport family, Sonoma Jet Center has started a fundraising campaign to support their rebuilding efforts. The picture on this page was taken yesterday and is the remains of one colleague's house in Santa Rosa.
Please consider joining us and donating to this cause. Sonoma Jet Center is committed to supporting our community.

Owners of Sonoma Jet Center
In order to start distributing the funds, gofundme requires me to disclose the following:
(a) I own Sonoma Jet Center. Three employees and one tenant lost their homes in the recent Sonoma County Wildfires and are the beneficiaries of this fund. They include Ron Cassero, Tim Kelly, Evin Pelosi, and Kevin Ward.
(b) Because gofundme either doesn't allow multiple beneficiaries or because their customer service folks can't be bothered to explain how to divide the funds, I have to withdraw the funds into a personal account I set up in my name specifically for this purpose. I will keep the funds segregated in that account so all of the donations remain accounted for.
(c) Once gofundme deposits the funds in the account (minus their commission), I will begin distributing the funds based on each beneficiary's needs. I intend to disperse most of the funds now to meet the beneficiaries immediate needs, however I intend to hold some of the funds in case additional beneficiaries come to my attention or I become aware of additional needs of the already named beneficiaries. At the close of this fundraising effort, all remaining funds will be distributed to the named beneficiaries.
Thank you again for your donation! The money you are donating goes a long way to getting the folks affected by the fires back on their feet.
