The Sand Fire, one of the worst disasters in our area in 75 years, started the afternoon of July 25, and before it was brought under control five days later, had burned 4,240 acres, destroyed a total of 67 buildings and left 20 families homeless.

To help those affected by this devastation, a group of Amador County residents and musicians are offering Sand Aid — a day of music, raffles and fun at the Plymouth Hotel, at 9356 Main Street, in Plymouth, on Sept. 7, from 12 to 8 p.m.

To handle this outpouring of support from local talent, there will be music on two stages. Volunteer acts include Mr. Pinstripe, Damon Wyckoff, of Forever Goldrush, Nedra & Julio, Darcel Hunter and Pat Keene, FreeZeout, Warm Charlie, The Brokin’ Jug Band, Slade Rivers and Tess Sell.

Many local merchants have donated items for a day-long raffle, with items to be awarded hourly.

An account to receive donations has been set up at the Plymouth Wells Fargo branch. Those wishing to help but who are unable to attend on Sept. 7, can donate to the Amy Champ Charity Fund, at the Plymouth Wells Fargo. The contact at the bank is Assistant Vice President Donna Brune.

For information, contact Amy Champ, at 418-5113, or Julio Guerra, at 296-1928.
