On September 8, 2020, the Almeda Drive Fires tore through Talent and Phoenix, Oregon. Over 3,000 structures have been lost, including nearly 2,360 homes. The Rogue Valley is and has been the home of many wonderful musicians. On Friday, October 2nd, 2020, please join us at 5 pm PST as we (local musicians and artists) come together to be in service to our community through our live stream event: Rebuild the Rogue!
Proceeds from Rebuild the Rogue will go directly to the Rogue Valley Relief Fund hosted by the MRG Foundation in partnership with Rogue Action Center, Rogue Climate, SOHealth-e, SO Equity, and Siskiyou Rising Tide. This fund will be used to directly meet the needs of those who have been displaced by fires—it will buy tents, meals, gas, and other supplies folks need immediately. It is the mission of Rebuild the Rogue to use our mutual and diverse musical gifts to raise fire relief funds, so the positive leaders in our community may rebuild a stronger Southern Oregon.
Music has the power to uplift, invigorate, and heal the heart. When one’s mind is stretched thin down pathways of stress, worry, and loss, music can bring it back to the present moment. Music invites peace and allows space for joy to live. We have curated a massive concert line up of musicians who are all either currently local to the Rogue Valley or former residents. This collaboration is unique because all these talented artists sharing their music with you, grew up in the Rogue Valley, live here, or are from here. The Rogue Valley and our vibrant community have supported our artistic pursuits throughout our lives and we would like to repay your generosity by raising funds to give back to those most affected by the fires that ravaged our local community. Let us entertain you and give you a reason to hope and take heart in the movement forward.
RVTV will be programming the event on RVTV Voices. This channel is available in both Jackson and Josephine Counties on Charter cable channel 182. Ashland TV, from Ashland Home Net on channel 15 (SD) or 15.1 (HD) or our LIVE channels at RVTV.SOU.EDU
