Friday: Benefit in memory of Amelie Le Moullac

 

A benefit will be held on Friday, May 16, in memory of Amelie Le Moullac, a 24-year-old Menlo School graduate who was killed while riding her bike to work in San Francisco last August.

Members of the Palo Alto Philharmonic and a choir of community singers will perform at the benefit, along with Ms. Le Moullac's mother, Jessie Jewitt.

KQED recently reported that the truck driver who struck Ms. Le Moullac will face no charges, despite surveillance video from a nearby auto shop that allegedly shows him making an unsafe right turn into the bicycle lane.

The video was found by a member of the San Francisco Bike Coalition after police failed to canvass the area for evidence following the fatal crash. The family has filed a civil lawsuit against the driver and his employer.

Friday's benefit will take place at 7:30 p.m. at St. Mark's Episcopal Church, located at 600 Colorado Ave. in Palo Alto. All proceeds will go to "Amelie's Angels," a fund created to help children in Haiti.
