Malibu, CA — Howard Leight, co-owner of the Malibu Rocky Oaks winery, is a billionaire hearing tech industry mogul who lost most of his vineyard over the last week as wildfires raged through California. His misfortune did not deter him from helping the victims of the fire, however.
Last week, after Leight tried unsuccessfully to save his property from raging fire, he felt it was time to give back. So, he contacted his friend Bill Kerbox, and this week, they rolled in with the supplies.
On Tuesday morning, a group of volunteers loaded up Leight's yacht, named the Leight Star, with thousands of water bottles, 100 gallons of gasoline, snacks, dog food, lots of beer and other necessities. They then headed up the coast and began making their way to Paradise Cove.
"There's been so much confusion," said Bill Kerbox, a friend of Leight's, to the group of volunteers as they began their journey. "We need to get out on social media that supplies are going to start be unloaded in a little over an hour at Paradise Cove."
