Concert to raise funds for pediatric cancer research

The second annual Music for Mia Benefit Concert, hosted by Fairfield School of Music, will take place on Sunday, Nov. 12, from 2-5 p.m., at The Acoustic, 2926 Fairfield Avenue 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 & crafts, a bake sale and more.

All ticket sales will be donated to pediatric cancer research in honor of Mia McCaffrey, a Trumbull 6-year-old who passed away in March 2017 after battling parameningeal rhabdomyosarcoma. Mia loved music and starred in an award-winning music video, Fighter, by Taylor Tote, that helped raise awareness and funds for childhood cancer.

Tickets are available at the door for a suggested, tax-deductible donation of $15 for adults, payable by cash or check to Infinite Love for Kids Fighting Cancer. Admission is free for kids and teens. For more information on the event, visit or email
