Mersea’s in Port San Luis held a fundraiser on Sunday to raise money for victims of the Camp Fire.

The establishment partnered up with Cutwater Spirits in San Diego to create a specialty cocktail for the day. 100 percent of the specialty cocktail menu goes to Evacuation Relief Fund. For those who didn’t want a cocktail, there were also jars collecting cash donations.

“We obviously felt terrible for the people who had to go through that fire. One of my buddies, actually who reps for Cutwater, his dad lost his house in Paradise so it hits pretty close to home for him” said Mike Hoffman, Mersea’s manager.

Tripped Up and Shane Stoneman & Friends donated hours of live musical performances from 11:00 a.m. To 4:00 p.m.
