SAN BRUNO (CBS) – A fundraiser for victims of the San Bruno explosion and fire brought out hundreds of neighbors and supporters Saturday.

The event took place at the San Bruno Recreation Center, the very same place many evacuees learned they had lost their homes.

Warm weather and live bands kept spirits high, and there was plenty of food.

According to the organizers the event took on a life of its own once they announced it.

    I”m pretty sure every homeowner out there has house insurance. It’s only a matter of time until they get that fat check from home insurance company.

    If you’d prefer not to donate the red cross, the city of san bruno has information on alternatives that are more likely to actually end up in the hands of those affected by the fire. Please see the city’s web page:

    Mikey, that “Fat Check” will not replace the lives that they lost. If something tragic happened to you, I’m sure you won’t be sitting there feeling that a “Fat Check” will solve everything.

    This is what community is all about to me and my family and that is helping to support others in times of need. I hope I never need any kind of assistance but if I do, I am thankful for my community. This may sound like B.S. to some, but I am a firm believer.

    If you donate to the American Red Cross. Please state “restricted for San Bruno Explosion” on your check or else they can use the funds for other disasters and their overhead. If you place restricted they are audited and will have to track the funds distribution seprately
