Escape the smoke in Nevada County

Wow, it’s smoky out there.  With the horrible air quality in the Bay Area and Sacramento, you might want an escape to bluer skies and cleaner air.

If you want to help the victims of the horrible Camp Fire,  in which so far 79 people have lost their lives and 700 are still unaccounted for,  The Miners Foundry in Nevada City is hosting a benefit for The Camp Fire victims on Wednesday from 3:30-11:30 p.m.
