The Story

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.

Hi all you generous donors and friends! Just wanted to let you know that the project to fix the roof on the Norton Buffalo Hall is moving forward and will get started just as soon as this rain stops.

In addition to the monies raised through, we've put aside over $4,000 from various events and projects (thank you, Carlos Reyes, Roy Rogers, and all the supporters of our hall dedication and 490 Cabaret events!). An amazing benefactor has stepped forward to donate the work as long as we can cover the materials, which we can, thanks to all of you. 

So look for those tarps to come down soon and our beloved Norton Buffalo Hall to be healed. Our roof shall be fixed. Endless gratitude to all, 

Paradise Community Guilds
