Carr Fire Benefit Concert to help families and pets displacedI’d like you to join me for a fantastic benefit concert coming up at my event venue, the Foothills! We’re hosting a Carr Fire benefit concert on Saturday, October 13th from 7:00 to 10:00 pm. With the significant loss that is on-going for those affected by the devastating fires in north California Carr fire, we decided to put on a special concert to help those that lost their worldly belongings, homes and the pets that have been displaced and injured. Please come out for an evening of great music and dance and support those in need. Let’s bless others with our contribution!
All proceeds from this concert will benefit the Shasta Regional Community Foundation and the Haven Humane Society. Two great local bands will perform, “Rewind Press Play” and “The Rayos”. Doors open at 6:00 pm, so you’ll have time to grab a drink and a seat before the concert kicks off at 7:00. The Foothills Event Center’s bar will be fully-stocked with premium wine and beer, as well as non-alcoholic beverages and appetizers.
Our doors will open at 6:00 pm, so you can grab a drink and reserve a seat before the event officially begins at 7:00. We’ll have wine, beer, non-alcoholic beverages, and refreshments available for purchase at our bar.

The Shasta Regional Community Foundation is a nonprofit, public charity serving the people of Shasta and Siskiyou counties. Formed in 2000, they strive to connect those who care with causes that matter, so that the future can be stronger and healthier. “We are honored to be a trusted recipient to manage these funds for the greatest good in the Carr Fire recovery,” says Kerry Caranci, Chief Executive Officer of Shasta Regional Community Foundation.
The Haven Humane Society was founded in 1952, and provides care for lost, homeless, and abused animals in the Redding area. “We are very proud to have earned a reputation for providing the gold standard in quality animal care throughout Shasta County and beyond. But the biggest reward comes from carrying out our founders’ purpose; giving animals a safe haven and helping them transition to happy lives in loving homes,” the organization shares on their website.
