Last week on Monday, Nov. 6, two cannabis organizations raised $52,415 for the victims of California’s wildfires.
The October wildfires were devastating, affecting Napa, Mendocino, Sonoma, and Lake counties. As you may know, Mendocino is one third of the famous “Emerald Triangle”- the largest cannabis-producing region in the U.S.- which makes this year’s upcoming Emerald Cup in Sonoma County more important to the cannabis community than ever.
The fundraiser was held in Santa Rosa in Sonoma County, which happens to be the hometown of Subcool, the legendary seed breeder from TGA Genetics, who was among those who lost everything in the fires. To learn more about his narrow escape, check out CLN’s cover story here.
It was a time for solidarity, community, and reconnecting as many attendees were seeing each other for the first time since the fires
As NCIA’s executive director said in a press release, ““We are proud to be able to support the victims of the fires as they rebuild their homes and businesses in Sonoma County and the surrounding region.”
