Pawnee Fire Donation

June 26th, 2018

Rebuild NorthBay Foundation pledges $25,000 to Assist with

Pawnee Fire Relief for Lake County

Rebuild NorthBay Foundation’s (RBNF) board of directors held an emergency meeting on June 25th, 2018 in response to growing Pawnee wildfire in Lake County. The RNBF board approved an immediate donation of $25,000 to Lake County to offset the cost of fighting the Pawnee fire.

“We are aware of the approval of the CalOES/FEMA Fire Management Assistance Grant and while this is tremendously helpful, the grant will cover 75 percent of the county’s cost, therefore leaving the county’s already stressed general fund to cover the remainder. The donation is intended is to provide additional relief to the County of Lake which has withstood multiple fire events since the devastating 2015 Valley Fire. ”

Michael Mondavi

Executive Board of Directors, Founder of Folio Wine Partners based in Napa Valley

“Rebuild NorthBay Foundation has stepped up on short notice with support for people in need during an active fire. This is very much appreciated from a County trying to serve its citizens after a budget short fall caused by 6 previous emergencies in three years.”

Jim Steele

Lake County Supervisor, District 3; Board Chair
