Instead of paying admission, guests young and old came with their arms full of supplies and food items that were loaded into a truck to be taken across the border and given to those in need. Some even handed over the contents of their piggy banks.
"You can give 50 cents, you can give a canned food item, you can donate online," Isabella McNeil of SDUSD said. "There's so many options that really don't take a lot of money or effort and we wanted to make sure that we did our part as a school district and as children of our school district to help those children in need and other victims of the earthquake."
Students performed multiple song and dance acts in front of a crowd that included representatives of the Mexican consulate.
The benefit concert was organized with help from the San Diego Unified School District.
