Ellen DeGeneres’s Disaster Relief Fund Checks Presented to Local Non-Profit Organizations

On behalf of Ellen DeGeneres, Suzanne Perkins and Susan Jordan present Ellen’s Montecito Disaster Relief Fund Checks.

On behalf of Ellen DeGeneres, Suzanne Perkins and Susan Jordan present Ellen’s Montecito Disaster Relief Fund checks to local non-profit organizations involved in Montecito and Santa Barbara disaster relief efforts.

 

MONTECITO, CA (March 23, 2018) – All the checks from Ellen’s DeGeneres’s GoFundMe Montecito Disaster Relief Fund were distributed this week to local non-profit organizations involved with Montecito and Santa Barbara disaster relief efforts in the wake of the Thomas Fire, the largest wildfire in California history, and the devastating 1/9 Montecito Debris Flow.

Suzanne Perkins, of Sotheby’s International Realty, and Susan Jordan, Executive Director of the California Coastal Protection Network, were instrumental in working with Ellen’s team to organize all the local charities that helped in local relief efforts. The non-profit organizations were thrilled and honored to receive the funds distributed from Ellen’s GoFundMe charity.

Suzanne said, “It’s so unusual to find someone so giving and responsive to the needs of the community that she’s living in. Ellen is amazing!”

According to her GoFundMe page, “Ellen DeGeneres wants to help the people and animals of Montecito. The area has been devastated by record-breaking fires, and then a mudslide that wiped out nearly everything in its path. While the town rebuilds, Ellen and her friends want to support the thousands of people and animals affected by this disaster. They need our help.”

The money raised on Ellen’s GoFundMe site was sent to the Direct Impact Fund, a non-profit organization, and the funds were dispersed in various amounts to the following charities below:

MONTECITO, CA (March 23, 2018) – The second check from Ellen’s DeGeneres’s GoFundMe Montecito Disaster Relief Fund for $33,145.00, was distributed to Scott Grieve, Chief Executive Officer Earl Warren Showgrounds, and Michael Medel, Board President of the 19th District Agricultural Association, both representing the Santa Barbara Showgrounds Foundation.

Suzanne Perkins, of Sotheby’s International Realty, and Susan Jordan, Executive Director of the California Coastal Protection Network, have been instrumental in working with Ellen’s team to organize all the local charities that are helping in local relief efforts, and will ultimately receive funds from Ellen’s GoFundMe charity.

According to her GoFundMe page, “Ellen DeGeneres wants to help the people and animals of Montecito. The area has been devastated by record-breaking fires, and then a mudslide that wiped out nearly everything in its path. While the town rebuilds, Ellen and her friends want to support the thousands of people and animals affected by this disaster. They need our help.”

ABOUT EARL WARREN SHOWGROUNDS:

Earl Warren Showgrounds functions as the location that houses Incident Command during South County disasters. It also houses Santa Barbara Equine Evac and provides access to its stable facilities for the evacuation of large animals. The Showgrounds has an operating budget of approximately $2.3 million and was in relatively stable economic condition until about five years ago when the Brown Administration cut all funding from the state to zero. The budget cut amounted to about $200,000 per year and also transferred costs the state had been paying for insurance and other items to the Earl Warren. To address the budget cut, the Showgrounds depleted reserves and the facility itself has a significant backlog of deferred maintenance. Given that the Showgrounds is classified as a Class 4 (small) facility, it is harder to stage the kind of for-profit events that support larger fairground facilities.

The Showgrounds is not paid to house animals during a natural disaster. In order to accept animals that are evacuated, it partners with Santa Barbara Equine Evac who assumes all responsibility for evacuation, intake and cataloguing, feeding and care. Further, the Showgrounds cannot bill for hosting Incident Command unless there is formal disaster declaration at which point they can request funds from FEMA.

Needs and Donations: There is a significant need for additional funds both in the short term to address disasters such as the Thomas Fire and the Montecito Mudslide and in the longer term to preserve and improve this critical infrastructure asset in SB County.

To help address the state budget cuts, the Showgrounds created a non-profit arm that can accept on-line donations via PayPal – the Santa Barbara Showgrounds Foundation: http://sbshowgrounds.org/.

MONTECITO, CA (March 20, 2018) – The first check from Ellen’s DeGeneres’s GoFundMe Montecito Disaster Relief Fund for $20,000.00, was distributed to Abe Powell, the Co-Founder of the Montecito Bucket Brigade.

Powell, who is also on the board of directors on the Montecito Fire Protection District, was beyond thrilled and said, “We are going to use the money to buy a mud sucking machine that can suck mud and water out of homes, rather than our crew hand-digging. It will save hours with the work we are doing!”
