Phoenix Fire Benefit Gathering

This photo Kodiak Greenwood took of the metal sculpture that Dave and John created last week at Treebones metal shop, to be auctioned this Saturday at the Benefit , all proceeds (thru CPOA) to Fire victims.

A natural disaster calls for a natural blast.

In the wake of the Pfeiffer Fire in Big Sur that gripped the community with smoke and trepidation—and claimed more than 30 structures along one of the most scenic coastal ridges anywhere—a range of local groups have rallied to provide relief.
RiseBigSur and Luvlab Productions now join that push as they’re orchestrating a blockbuster event at a location TBA to ticket buyers—they promise an epic Big Sur setting—Saturday, Jan. 18.

Another rumor-summoning mystery surrounding the soiree? The possibility of a certain world-famous rock band with local ties making an appearance.

In the mean time, here’s what we know: Tickets are available for $50 at the Tammy Firefly site (proof of purchase and identification will need to be shown to get on the shuttle). A few days before the event, ticket holders will be given more details about the location.
So far, the entertainment offerings include music from SLO electronic-psych outfit Tropo Musik and ethereal singer-songwriter Marya Stark.

Several DJs (Kevin Dayspring, Joey Grajeda, Bryan Scott, Ardalan) will help keep the dancers dancing as well.
In addition to all the ear candy, there will be plenty of other-worldly performance art, Big Sur style, to stimulate the eyes.
The extensive list includes multi-talented contortionist Tammy Firefly herself, mermaid/snake charmer Adelaide Marcus, mystical Big Sur favorite RosaliaWebster and aerialists Lei Lei de Kirby and Paige Wyatt. San Luis Obispo aerial school Suspended Motion will put on a show that’ll blow some minds.

As for libations: Cayucos Beach Ale, specialty cocktails prepared by the DrinkMistress Vanessa Share and Shamanic Tea Service from RonJon Terlane will be offered for a donation. A silent auction with plenty of donated items to choose from will be available, including a metal sculpture of a Phoenix bird rising from the fire, made from reclaimed metal pieces from burnt homes on Pfieffer Ridge.

A couple more details: The Phoenix Benefit is a 21 and over gathering and it goes until 2am.

  1. Wahooo the clifffs canyons ridges.

  2. Hey Kate Thanks for posting about the benefit gathering my friends and I hosted, it was a great success and we had about 250 people there of all different ages and walks of life. I had multiple photographers there and I’ll send you a few good photos when they are done editing. But I’m so honored to say that our $$ goal was to raise $10,000, and that seemed like a number we weren’t gonna be able to meet at first, but we actually raised over $18,000 that night and we haven’t even counted the silent auction $$!! -Mike Handy

    Live and let live

  3. Woohoo! Great job, Mike! Who got the Phoenix sculpture. I saw it brought quite a price. Excellent!
