San Diego Unified Partners with Cesar Chavez Service Clubs to Host Benefit Concert for Victims of Mexico City Earthquake

 

 

 

WHAT: Students from the San Diego Unified School District will perform in a relief concert to benefit school children in Mexico following the 7.1 magnitude earthquake that caused widespread damage and destroyed at least two schools on September 19, 2017.

The Cesar Chavez Service Clubs will be partnering with the district and its office of Family and Community Engagement, along with the Consul General of Mexico to raise awareness and help generate donations. Northgate Markets and McCord’s Panaderia have also partnered with the district for the event this Saturday at Hoover High School.

The benefit will feature a variety of performance groups like Ballet Folklorico “Raices” from Rosa Parks Elementary School, traditional Mexican mariachi music from “Mariachi Juvenil,” Rock en Español from local band “Los Hollywood,” and Jazz music from the Hoover High Band.

In lieu of an admission fee to the concert both monetary donations and emergency supplies will be accepted at the event. 100 percent of all proceeds collected will be donated to the earthquake victims.

San Diego Unified prides itself in giving students the tools to get involved and make a positive change in the world. Our partnership with the Cesar Chavez Service Clubs on this event and throughout the entire school year helps us continue our commitment to student civic leadership.

We hope to see members of the community and media follow our students’ lead in nurturing cross-border relationships.

WHEN: Saturday, September 30, 2017 12:00 p.m – 3:00 p.m.

WHERE: Hoover High School, 4474 El Cajon Blvd. San Diego 92115
