Rising country star Devin Dawson shared to his fans that his California Smoke Tour was a huge success – and he did all of that for a good cause.
Devin Dawson’s Good Cause
His California Smoke Tour is a mini six-show tour, and it took place up and down the coast of California. All of the show’s earnings benefited the California Fire Foundation. The foundation provides both emotional and financial assistance to the families of fallen firefighters and the communities they protect.
This is a personal project for Dawson, as California and firefighters are both close to Dawson’s heart. He is a California native, and his grandfather and uncle both served as firefighters during most of their lives.
Back in 2018, California has been suffering and battered by huge fires. It wiped out many communities and taken lives, especially in Southern California.
“One of the reasons I’m stoked about this tour is because, as a California native, it’s a place very close to my heart, so I always jump at the chance to be back there,” Dawson noted when the tour was announced. “I don’t get to visit my family who still live there as often as I’d like, much less have an opportunity to play multiple shows throughout the state. The fact that all the proceeds from these shows will also go toward helping people affected by the California wildfires makes it that much more special to me.”
Dawson took to his Instagram page to express his gratitude towards the efforts to raise the money.
“Can’t believe we raised $12,463.00 for the @cafirefound on the #CaliforniaSmokeTour … Huge shoutout to the #DarkHorseFamily for coming out strong & coming together like that!! It was so dope to get the chance to host a lot of people affected by the fires, & just have a fun night to forget our troubles for a couple of hours. Thanks y’all so much for supporting my home state. Let’s do this again!! “
