Tejano star to play benefit for Luna
Local Tcjano star Shelly Lares will perform at a benefit concert for her 12-ycar-old cousin, Charles Luna, who is battling leukemia. The Lares family has joined their young cousin in the fight for his life by hosting a benefit Supcrbowl party featuring a special concert by Shelly Lares on Jan. 28.
“When we got the news about Charles’ condition, I knew that there had to be something I could do to help,” stated Shelly. “Any life-threatening disease that strikes a child is devastating, but when it hits this close to home, it puts things in perspective. I have been very fortunate and want to do all I can to help him get better.” The Lares and Luna families are hoping to raise $ 15,000 for Charles that will go towards his increasing medical expenses. The proceeds will also help reduce the cost of Charles’ airfare and accommodations for his stay at a hospital in Iowa where he will await a bone marrow transplant.
The Superbowl party will be held at the Cowboy Country Club in Central Park Mall and will begin with a 3-hour explosive concert by Shelly Lares from 2 to 5 p.m., followed by the Superbowl game shown on two giant screens. The party also includes a Bill Miller Bar-B-Q meal that will be served from 3:30 to 5 p.m., an auction with fantastic items to bid on,
including Tejano star memorabilia and great door prizes.
“Charles was diagnosed with leukemia in mid-September of last year,” said his father, Mario Luna, “and we are grateful to Shelly and her family for helping us out the way that they have in such a short time. We just hope that we can raise the money we need to help my son get better. No child deserves to be sick like this.”
Charles celebrated his 13th birthday on Jan. 17 and the family is hoping that by his 14th birthday he will be able to look forward to a healthy and leukemia-free life and get back to doing the things he enjoys—playing Sega and basketball, expanding his comic book collection and swimming.
Tickets are $10 for adults and $3 for children under age 12. The price includes the concert, a meal and the game. They can be purchased at the Cowboy Country Club or by calling Patti Lopez at 210-737-1826.
The Lares and Luna families are also asking people, especially the Hispanic community, to please consider becoming a bone marrow donor. The percentage of bone marrow donors is low.
For more information on becoming a bone marrow donor, please contact the South Texas Blood and Tissue Center at 210-731-5555.
