The Story

Our friends and Fresno State retired enology professors Roy Thornton and Susan Rodriguez tragically lost their retirement home in the Santa Rosa Tubbs Fire.They were evacuated in the early morning hours of October 9 by a neighbor who knocked on their door just in time. They left with the clothes on their backs.

As educators at Fresno State, Dr. Thornton and Dr. Rodriguez enriched the lives of so many individuals who work in the grape and wine industry.  Our viticulture and enology faculty, staff, students, alumni, and industry friends are grateful for their personal safety, yet devastated at their loss.   

We invite you to give today. Donations will be used to support Roy and Susan through what is bound to be a long process of recovering and rebuilding their home and lives.

Every dollar counts, no matter how big or small.When using YouCaring, 100% of your donation goes to Roy and Susan.  There is a small "tip" that can be adjusted by the donor to help YouCaring cover processing fees.   You can also help support this cause by sharing and re-posting.  Thank you.
