For its 35th annual block party, held Saturday, July 11, at the Paramount Studios backlot, the Concern Foundation for Cancer Research chose to add the number 2 to its logo to stress the fact that cancer is now a concern for the children and grandchildren of the founders of the foundation, which has been active for 41 years.
President Derek Alpert announced that $1.3 million dollars had been raised during the sold-out event, where over 3,000 participants were able to taste the food and desserts of over 40 local restaurants; to name just a few: Charlie’s, Chaya Brasserie, Il Cielo, La Cachette Bistro, Huckleberry Café & Bakery, La Provence Pâtisserie, Vibrato Grill.
