Placerville, CA- Kilt & Cork, LLC announced today that the Thompson Auto Group Gold Hill Country Music Festival at Saureel Vineyards will now benefit the Caldor Fire Fund, a fund set up by the El Dorado Community Foundation to assist those impacted by the fire raging in the county.

“As soon as we saw the devastation this fire was having on members of our community, we knew we had to help,” says Russ Reyes from Kilt & Cork, who is producing this festival. “Living and working in this county the last 30 years, we all know someone who is impacted by this fire, and rather than feeling helpless, we want to do something to aid the victims.”
