Concert benefiting retired Edinburg police officer with ALS slated Friday

November 16, 2018

A benefit concert for a retired Edinburg police officer diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease is scheduled for Friday at Yerberia Cultura in McAllen.

The concert, dubbed “Kiss My ALS-2,” is the second benefit concert for Andres Luna, who is also a former Rio Grande Valley musician. The flyer boasts an image of Darth Vadar, given that Luna is a big fan of the Star Wars franchise.

Luna was a police officer at the Edinburg Police Department from 1995 to 2015, when he was diagnosed with the degenerative disease, also known as ALS. According to his family, his condition has since progressed.

The benefit show will take place at Yerberia Cultura, located at 613 S. 17th St. in McAllen, at 8 p.m. The show is for ages 18 and up, and though there is no cover, donations for Luna’s medical expenses are encouraged.
