Celebrities and regular folks join forces to rebuild Malibu after Woolsey fire

Shawn Dugan pointed across the Calabasas valley in which the King Gillette Ranch sits to a black and barren hillside where until a few weeks ago a few of her best friends had lived in a beautiful home that burned to the ground in the Woolsey fire.

“If that tree wasn’t there you could see where their house was,” Dugan said on Sunday afternoon a few hours after the One Love Malibu Festival kicked off with a musical bill that included acts such as Katy Perry and Gwen Stefani and the goal of raising as much money as possible for Woolsey fire relief.

“They’ve put this benefit together so shortly after the devastation,” said Dugan, a friend of Alice Bamford of the One Gun Ranch in Malibu, which helped to organize the day. “It’s an incredible effort.”

It truly was. In addition the musical performances for which the artists donated their time, all of the food and drink from restaurants such as Nobu Malibu and Élephante was donated too.
