Bella Benefit concert planned for Sunday in Scripps Ranch

A benefit concert named for 5-year-old Bella Noble who died in a tragic accident will be held Sunday, Nov. 3, to help the kindergartner’s family pay for medical, air ambulance and funeral expenses.

The Ramona girl died Oct. 17 when she was accidentally run over by her mother’s van after she ran behind it to open a driveway gate while her mother was backing up at a friend’s house on Carnation Avenue.

Friends of the family said Bella, the daughter of Sheri and Bill Noble, loved to sing and dance so they organized the Bella Benefit.

The benefit will be held from noon to 4 p.m. at Hoyt Park in Scripps Ranch and all ages are welcome.

Entertainment will include The Soul Persuaders, The Mighty Untouchables, The Heroes, Firefly, Sirens Crush, The Pelicans, Gary Hyde, Gary Nieves, and other special guests.

Suggested donation is $10 per adult but organizers say more is welcome.

Those attending should bring a blanket or low-rise chair for seating and can bring a picnic-style lunch.

    There are many reasons to attend this benefit concert, especially since Bella's dad has been in the music community for decades and this community really has embraced this family in their mourning.Bella also was so musical and loved to dance.
    Additionally, the air ambulance charge may be anywhere from $12,000 to $24, 000, and insurance may not cover much of it." According to an MSNBC report: only about 60 percent of insurers pay the full costs,,, Some insurers pay as little as $300 out of a $17,000 bill, for instance." Trauma room ruscitations, especially when there is internal bleeding, are also many tens of thousands of dollars, and the patient's family thus has a substantial bill for their share of cost even after insurance pays.
    Even if you are busy today, your Sunday, make some time to attend the concert at Hoyt Park , and drop off a donation.

    Sorry for the family, but I have a question: What is the purpose of medical insurance, then, if we have to pay so much for emergencies such as this one?

      Agreed. It depends on the insurance policy.
      When my husband was in an accident we still received bills from fire dept and hospital after insurance paid.
      Usually you can negotiate with the billing dept to bring down the amount and set up a payment plan. Bu for the Noble family, t after such tragedy, outside help from friends and community are very much needed.
