Notice: the Butte Fire takes Dale Laitinen's Home

Posted September 27 2015

"As the family of Dale Laitinen, we are asking you to please help him and his wife, Donna rebuild their lives.  They have lost everything in the Butte Fire; their home, art studio and a vehicle.  Can you imagine waking up one morning and everything you own is gone, along with the tools of your livelihood?


That is their reality.  Dale is a well-known water color artist.  See .  All of his paints, brushes, canvases and uncompleted works are gone.  They need our help.  Will you please share out of your everything and give into what has become their nothing?


We are asking family, friends and the art community to help Dale and Donna get back on their feet as quickly as possible.  Insurance helps but it in no way covers the depth of their loss.  We appreciate every contribution regardless of the amount.  It says you care."
