When it comes to events, CONCERN is known for the annual Block Party fundraiser. With a 4,000 person guest list, 60 restaurants serving up the best food in Los Angeles, live entertainment on several stages on the back lot of Paramount Studios, raising over $1.5 million in one night to fund cancer research – it’s easy to see why CBS featured us as one of LA’s best summer charity events.

Beyond the Block Party, we host several other events during the year for the Los Angeles community of pediatric cancer patients, survivors, and their families.


Since 1968, CONCERN FOUNDATION continues to be at the front-lines of cancer research.
