A place for entertainment and camaraderie, while never losing focus on the goal to conquer cancer now!
On Saturday 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 with a goal to raise $2 million dollars for cancer research.
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.
Concern is honored to celebrate The Best of LA 2023® on Los Angeles magazine’s street for the 17th year, which will feature lounges, photo booths, food stations, DJ dancing and much, much more. Los Angeles magazine will once again make a financial contribution to Concern to help further their mission.
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.

Starting from a simple idea back in the early 70’s that has grown to become a reality with thousands of moving parts is the one thing that sets Concern’s signature Block Party apart from most other organizations in this city.
