Approximately a month ago, May 25th, three families in the Village of Oak Creek (Sedona, AZ) lost their homes to a devastating fire. Most of the damage occurred when a propane tank exploded and flames almost immediately spread to the surrounding homes. The local fire department responded quickly, but unfortunately they weren’t able to save any of the homes.
The families lost virtually everything, even their pets. The silver lining to the story is the community’s willingness to step up and help in a time of need. Over the next few weeks, volunteers and generous people donated time, goods and money to help the families start to rebuild. One of the culminating events took place on June 19th — Sedona Cares Fire Fundraiser.
We were fortunate enough to attend this wonderful event. After a long day of fund raising at the Factory Outlets in the VOC, a primetime performance was held in the Canyon Moon Theater. Many of the local, and extremely talented, musicians and performers took the stage to help the families raise money and to help take their minds off of their recovery efforts for at least one evening.
Living in Sedona for many years, we still seem to be amazed when the community bands together to help others in need. Whether it was Believe in Ashley or any of the other numerous supporting events, Sedona seems to come together to help their own. Of all the reasons we have listed to live in Sedona so far, the strong sense of compassion and cohesiveness make this area more livable than any of the spectacular vistas and other attractions. We are proud to be Sedona residents!
