Phoenix Festival Benefits Butte Fire Recovery Efforts
Placeholder Image

A group of young local individuals have banned together to create an event called the Phoenix Festival, scheduled for Sunday, Nov. 1 at Ironstone Amphitheatre. This will be a day long family oriented event with a full lineup of local bands, vendors and resources. All proceeds from the Phoenix Festival will go directly to the Calaveras Community Foundation’s Disaster Relief Fund.

The Calaveras Community Foundation (a 501c(3) non-profit) has created the Disaster Relief Fund to provide disaster assistance in Calaveras County, especially for those impacted by the Butte Fire. The Foundation will be focusing on post-event recovery and is currently assessing now best to use its financial resources.

The youth movement in Calaveras has been working diligently to bring this event to fruition to contribute to this fund, but more help is needed. Organizers are currently seeking vendors, sponsorships, silent auction and raffle items, volunteers and help spreading the word.

The Butte Fire Benefit Committee is asking for help to make this event possible.

If you would like to help them in anyway, contact them at:
