On April 13, Pac Ave Records, the student-run record label at University of the Pacific, will release an album benefitting victims of the October fires in Sonoma County.
The album is entitled “Rose Gold: Songs for Sonoma.”
“The fact that Pac Ave chose to dedicate the proceeds of this record to my hometown is something that means a lot to me,” said Connor Devlin, a UOP music industry student. “I think it really shows a great deal of love from the school, Pac Ave and all the people who came together to make the album possible.”
Devlin, who is from Sonoma County, lost his family home to the fires, as did one other music student.
Proceeds from the sale of the CD will be donated directly to benefit those students affected by the Santa Rosa fires through the Santa Rosa Junior College Fire Relief Fund, according to UOP.
“The charity receiving the proceeds will distribute the funds to students who need to purchase school supplies and necessities like backpacks, bicycles or books lost in the fires,” said Olivia Valentino, Pac Ave’s marketing coordinator.
