Benefit for childhood cancer research Nov. 16

The 4th annual Music for Mia: Pediatric Cancer Benefit Concert, hosted by Fairfield/Trumbull School of Music, will take place on Saturday, Nov. 16, from 4-5:30 p.m., at The Acoustic, 2926 Fairfield Ave., in Bridgeport. This family-friendly event will feature performances by students and faculty members from Fairfield School of Music, as well as face-painting, arts and crafts and more.

Mia loved music and starred in an award-winning music video (Fighter, by Taylor Tote) that helped raise awareness and funds for childhood cancer.
