The Marshall Fire on Dec. 30 forced evacuations for the entire town of Superior and city of Louisville, and ended up destroying more than 1,000 homes, marking it as the most destructive fire in Colorado's history. The state’s website estimates home and business damage to be around $580 million, though officials have discussed estimates of up to $680 million.

The Boulder Fire Recovery Benefit Concert is sponsored by the MDC/Richmond American Foundation, which contributed $250,000, Amazon, which contributed $50,000, the Tuchman Family Foundation, which contributed $50,000, and the Colorado Lottery, which contributed $10,000.
