Carmel Valley 12-year-old organizes benefit concert for disease research

A benefit concert, titled “Striking A Chord,” will be held on Feb. 11, with all of the money raised going to the ALS Association of San Diego and helping fund research to find a cure for Lou Gehrig's disease, according to a release.

Twelve-year-old Megan Spector, a Carmel Valley Middle School student and a regular performer in San Diego theater productions, came up with the idea of putting on the concert to raise awareness for Lou Gehrig's disease after her aunt was diagnosed. Megan helped organize a concert that will feature performers who have starred in local, touring and Broadway productions.

The concert will be at 7 p.m. at The Irwin M. Jacobs Qualcomm Hall at 5775 Morehouse Drive. Tickets are $15-$25 and can be purchased at web.alsa.org/strikingachord. An online auction that features everything from wine baskets to theater tickets to sports memorabilia is being held until Tuesday at biddingforgood.com/StrikingAChordForALS.
