Rachael Shapiro has gained a lot from music.

She’s also given a lot back.

The Staples senior — a very talented pianist — has produced one benefit concert each year, throughout her high school career.

Last year’s event raised money for pancreatic cancer research. This year, the beneficiary is the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

The event is set for Thursday, May 24 (7:30 p.m. at the Steinway Piano Gallery, 501 Post Road East, Westport).The minimum donation is $30 for adults, $20 for students — but greater amounts will be gladly accepted.

Seating is limited, and tickets must be purchased in advance.  Reservations can be sent to:  Rachael Shapiro, 606 Post Road East, #570, Westport, CT 06880.  Please include your email address for confirmation.
