This event is for the benefit of Immediate Oakland Fire Relief, a fund set up to provide immediate relief for those most affected by the Oakland Fire who are not eligible for any other source formal support. This is a group of individuals who lost friends and loved ones in the fire,  and since the Red Cross only takes care of biological family or legal partners of the deceased or the displaced, and The Gray Area Fund is for future long term support. There are several groups doing this work on behalf of people such as those who lost roommates who can no longer pay for rent; people who have been taking unpaid time off from work to grieve; people who survived the fire or lost loved ones and need therapy and other healing services; people who have been flying in from out of town to attend memorials; people who are hosting memorials in their homes and feeding out-of-town friends; people who are providing free health care and other goods and services. This is a community that was already financially vulnerable before this terrible tragedy. All donations will provide immediate relief.
