This year’s theme is “Kingdom of Concern; An Evening of Feasting, Revelry and Dance.” Thousands attended the food and entertainment focused fundraising event. The fundraising goal was to exceed last year’s $2 million for cancer research and treatments. Kelly Stone, Bruce Singer and Eden Alpert received the Spirit of Concern Humanitarians Award.

“Concern Foundation is proud to honor these exceptional people for their passion, commitment to philanthropy and involvement in the community,” says Derek Alpert, president of Concern Foundation. “They truly exemplify what Concern Foundation represents to the cancer community, locally and around the world. We recognize the most inspiring people in our community at our Block Party and we provide funding to only the best cancer research scientists that are making a difference in conquering cancer.”

The mission of Concern Foundation is to conquer cancer by providing critical funds to treat the early stages of discovery. Concern Foundation has raised and awarded $59 million to cancer scientists around the globe since its inception in 1968. For nearly 50 years, Concern has been a leader in the advancement of cancer immunology, a field that carries the most potential for discovering treatments and preventions for cancer.
