The thousands of people who lost everything in the flames of the wildfire in Malibu are about to get six-figures worth of relief, courtesy of the One Love Malibu concert.
A spokesperson for the concert tells TMZ … between donations, ticket sales and the live auction, the tally from the weekend event is approaching $1 million. We’re told it will be a few more days before they have an exact number.
Sunday’s sold-out concert in Calabasas featured performances from Robin Thicke, Katy Perry and Gwen Stefani … and the auction included a motorcycle ride with Orlando Bloom.
We’re told 100 percent of the proceeds are going to MalibuFoundation.org … and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Malibu will assist with distribution of funds to victims of the Woolsey Fire.
The Woolsey Fire scorched nearly 100k acres and destroyed more than 1,500 structures over 2 weeks. Three people died and nearly 300k people were evacuated.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were among the evacuees as the fire came right up to their Hidden Hills property. A private firefighting crew they’d hired was able to hold back the flames.
While Liam Hemsworth, Camille Grammer, Gerard Butler and Robin lost all or parts of their homes … there were thousands of non-celebs affected. The concert funds will, at the very least, help start the recovery process.
