Del Norte County Fair raises money to relieve Crescent Bay damage from the devastating Japanese Tsunami

Crescent City, CA (Thursday, April 7, 2011) – “Runaway” country crooners Stephen Barker Liles and Eric Gunderson of Love and Theft, known for their Top-10 Country charting tune, have signed on to perform at the Del Norte County Fairgrounds to benefit the aid for destruction caused in Crescent Bay due to the Tsunami that devoured North East Japan .  The group has also performed as the opening act for fellow charitable country cutie Taylor Swift on her 2008 tour.

On March 11, 2011, the California Coast was struck with the Tsunami aftermath of the horrifying Japanese earthquake that rendered tens of thousands dead and missing abroad.  Domestically, many on the coast of California were also under an evacuation warning.  Tsunami waves swept five people into the ocean, leaving one California man dead. Destruction to the tune of almost 40 million dollars has plagued the shoreline of Crescent Bay. Eight-foot waves crushed harbors, boats and closed off the 101 freeway that Friday morning.
