Oakland's Port bar, 2023 Broadway, which opened last year and serves the LGBT community, recently raised over $750 for the Gray Area Foundation for the Arts in response to the Ghost Ship warehouse fire through a four-DJ fundraiser. Bar owners Sean Sullivan and Richard Fuentes said that DJ Becky Knox pulled the DJs together – she had developed her DJ talents by playing in many spaces similar to the Ghost Ship and felt other DJs would want to do something for victims' families and friends. Additionally, Tito's vodka donated $5,000 to the effort. From left, Fuentes, Sullivan, and Knox are joined by Tito's representative Devin Grigg in publicizing the donation.
