Amid the ashes of Paradise CA, one beautiful structure remains - the Paradise Performing Arts Center (PPAC), a modern, world class, 765 seat performance facility, which miraculously survived the Camp Fire. In memory of the 1st anniversary of the Camp, and to celebrate the re-birth of Paradise, a series of 3 benefits concerts will be held at PPAC, hosted by the California Gift of Music organization, a non-profit, which operated the post-fire Miracle City Fire Relief Center in the old Chico Toys R Us. All musicians are volunteering their artist skills for free, and all proceeds after expenses go to PPAC, re-building the Norton Buffalo Hall, another Paradise Arts music venue which was destroyed in the fire.
Butte county CA, where Paradise is located, has thousands of Fire Refugees Struggling to return home. Progress has been made, but Fire Refugee needs remain enormous. Finances remain difficult for these Fire Refugees.
