A California winery owner has raised over $48,000 to support wildfire relief in Napa and Sonoma counties. 

Jake Kloberdanz, CEO and founder of ONEHOPE wine and gifts, created a GoFundMe initiative to raise $50,000 for the Sonoma County Fire and Rescue Authority, the Napa County Fire Department, Lake County Fire and Rescue and relief efforts for victims of the fires. 

By Tuesday evening-- one day after Kloberdanz created the fundraiser--- the effort raised just over $48,000. Over 600 people have donated. 

"I like many owe a lot to the surrounding communities (Lake, Sonoma and Napa) and am trying to bring together a number of respected voices to help pull together donations to help in the relief efforts," Kloberdanz wrote on the GoFundMe page.
