It’s T-minus 24 hours and we are incredibly excited for the upcoming annual Block Party being held by the Concern Foundation in order to raise funds for Cancer Research. Now, we love any event that comes with a good cause, and we commend the foundation’s efforts. Last year alone, they raised over $2 million dollars on this event alone and hope they can top it off, even more, this year. Cancer affects us all, and we stand behind the mission statement the foundation carries in trying to get closer to one day finding the cure for cancer.

Tomorrow evening, July 8, 2023, Concern Foundation will host its 48th Annual Block Party on the back lot of Paramount Studios Hollywood. The anticipated sold-out event will again be attended by 4,000 guests eating some of the most delicious treats in all of Los Angeles.

Great food and beverages will be found up and down every street including notable mainstays of the Block Party, such as Vibrato Grill Jazz, The Grill on the Alley, Factor’s Famous Deli, A.O.C., Fogo de Chao, Someone’s In The Kitchen, Dulan’s Soul Food, Nobu Malibu, STK, Porta Via, Maria’s Italian Kitchen, H & H Brazilian Steakhouse, Milagro Tequila, Deutsch Family, and Pink’s Famous Hot Dogs just to name a few. Joining Concern for the first time are Calajo Catering, Brique LA, The Breakfast Club, The Hideaway, Leona’s Sushi House, The Village, Firefly, and deserts by local artisans like Pitchoun! Bakery!

The theme for this year’s event will be THE LAND BEFORE TIME: THE EXTINCTION OF CANCER.  Concern will be honoring the Kallick Family with the Lifetime of Giving Award and saluting Cedars Sinai Cancer for their groundbreaking work focused on conquering cancer. The backlot streets will be filled with plenty of musical and interactive entertainment on multiple stages featuring the Tom Nolan Band on the main stage, D’ City Sound & Events on the Yabba Dabba DJ Stage presented by the Hirsch Family Foundation, and the Vibrato “Grotto” Grill Jazz stage. Throughout the venue, guests will find photo studios, lounges, casino-style gaming, and beauty services provided by the Beauty Bus Foundation. One of the highlights of the evening will be the online silent and live auctions sponsored by ZACUTO GROUP that will feature items and packages including one-of-a-kind opportunities, concert and event tickets, restaurants, staycations, golf packages, and many other wonderful items donated by friends throughout the community.

We cannot wait and hope to see you there tomorrow!
