A benefit concert for children in Haiti and in memory of Menlo School graduate Amelie Le Moullac is set for 8 p.m. Saturday, May 16, at Saint Mark's Episcopal Church at 600 Colorado Ave. in Palo Alto.

Le Moullac was struck and killed by a tractor trailer while riding a bike in San Francisco on Aug. 14, 2013. At the time of her death, she was 24 and working for Voce Communications, a public relations and marketing firm in San Francisco.

In memory of Le Moullac, her mother, Jessie Jewitt, founded Amelie's Angels, a fund to provide water, food, clothing and education for children in Pacasse, Haiti. The concert will include a presentation to Amelie's Angels.

Concert sponsors are The Veen Firm in San Francisco and Oakland attorney Micha Liberty.
