Singer Gwen Stefani To Donate Proceeds of San Diego Concert to Wildfire Relief Effort

SAN DIEGO — Singer Gwen Stefani announced she will donate proceeds from her Oct. 30 show at San Diego State University’s Cox Arena to the San Diego Foundation’s After The Fires Fund 2007, which benefits disaster response, recovery and building.

A native of Southern California, Stefani said San Diego has been like a second home to her and has always supported her career. The Grammy Award-winning singer said she originally planned to cancel the show because of the fires and out of respect to residents, but then realized there might be a better solution.

The San Diego Foundation’s After-the-Fires Fund 2007 was opened on Oct. 21 to receive donations for making emergency grants to first responders and other nonprofit service organizations engaged in disaster response, recovery and rebuilding.

Gwen Stefani is a singer, songwriter and clothing designer. She has sold more than 30 million albums globally both as a solo artist and as lead singer for the band No Doubt.

Gwen Stefani was born in Fullerton, Calif. but grew up in Anaheim, and has always supported her community in Southern California. It's refreshing to see a popular artist give back in such a timely and meaningful way. Kudos to Stefani, and we hope that other artists follow her lead.
