The Norton Buffalo Hall is one of the jewels of the Paradise, California community. It hosts a full spectrum of musical and community-oriented events: concerts, including 490 Cabarets; the weekly Open Mikefull; workshops such as recent ones on flower essences and composting; private parties and receptions; and, of course, meetings of the Paradise Community Guilds. Built on donated land as a gathering place for farmers and their families, the Norton Buffalo Hall was recently renamed to honor a local benefactor, musician, and hero whose contributions to Paradise made him a beloved figure and who died before his time.
Unfortunately, the building is aging and its roof has sprung a leak--several, actually. To fix it will require thousands of dollars that our small nonprofit just doesn't have. We want to keep the doors open and the floors dry. We're hoping you do, too. If everyone who has enjoyed this beautiful building were to chip in whatever they were able to, we could take the tarps off and put a new roof on, using local and volunteer labor. Roofs are expensive. So we need your support in making this happen. Please consider giving what you can to "Raise the Roof" at the Norton Buffalo Hall.
