Also at the event will be the Experience the Best of L.A.® on Los Angeles magazine’s street featuring the Infiniti Lounge, special giveaways and treats from CLIF/LUNA Bar.

One of the most anticipated portions of the event is the live auction to be hosted by award-winning actress Jill Whelan from The Love Boat. The Block Party also boasts live musical entertainment on four stages, featuring Oskar Caraya & The Enclave and D’ City Sound with MC Dwayne, as well as a number of island themed performers such as Pan Dulce, Son De Cuba, Caro Pierotto and Marbella.

More than 70 food and beverage vendors showcase the best of their menus, from Los Angeles classics like Fogo de Chao, The Grill on the Alley, Lawry’s Catering, Pink’s Hot Dogs and Slater’s 50/50 to popular newcomers such as Bourbon Steak by Michael Mina, Spread PB and Tipple & Brine. A fabulous array of sweet treats will also be showcased, including Audrey’s Cookies, Cookie Good, Dandy Don’s Homemade Ice Cream, The Larder at Tavern, La Provence Patisserie & Café, Rita’s Italian Ice and more.

This year the Block Party will pay tribute to the more than 750 cancer researchers who have been funded by Concern in the last 47 years, all of whom have demonstrated their achievements as leaders committed to finding innovative treatments and ultimately, cures for cancer.

“We honor these scientists’ achievements as leaders in the cancer research community and their dedication to finding new approaches in the quest to conquer cancer,” states Derek Alpert, President of Concern Foundation.
