Proceeds from the concert will benefit North Bay Fire Relief Fund and NomaGives.

With the destruction from wildfires to California's North Bay area, The Family Coppola in partnership with BottleRock Presents and Sonoma State University's Green Music Center will host a massive charity concert, headlined by Counting Crows. Proceeds will benefit North Bay Fire Relief Fund and NomaGives, charities aiding the same cause.

More than 170,000 acres of land were scorched during the wildfires that spread across Northern California earlier this month, which left homes and communities destroyed.

Corey Beck, Francis Ford Coppola Winery's president and director of winemaking, explained in a press release: "The spirit of community in wine country is strong, and we are resilient, and it's times like these when we band together and help rebuild."

Dave Graham, CEO of BottleRock Napa Valley and BottleRock Presents, added that this event highlights an issue that hit very close to home. "Nearly all of us who work with BottleRock Napa Valley and BottleRock Presents events live in the North Bay and have been affected by these devastating fires in one way or another," Graham said in a statement. "We felt it was important to also bring music directly to the North Bay to raise both money and the spirits of our friends and neighbors in wine country. We are extremely grateful to all of the musicians, crews, volunteers, our BottleRock staff and all our partners and sponsors who have stepped up to make these benefit concerts possible."

Tickets, which range from $50 to $250, go on sale at 10 a.m. PT here
