California native Devin Dawson is giving back to his home state in a big way.
Devin donated $12,463—the proceeds from his six-date California Smoke Tour—to the California Fire Foundation, aiding them in providing emotional and financial assistance to firefighters, their families and the communities they protect. The cause is near and dear to Devin’s heart as his grandfather was a California fireman for 25 years, while his uncle served for 35 years.
“Having the opportunity to get back and give back to my home state in this way was very meaningful to me,” said Devin. “Big props to my Dark Horse Family members who, from all over the country, donated VIP experiences and tickets to folks affected by the wildfires so they could come to my show for free. It was awesome to support a shared cause, have a fun night and forget our troubles for a couple hours.”
In 2018, California wildfires caused more than $3.5 billion in damages and claimed more than 100 lives, including six firefighters.
