A Royal Feast at Concern Foundation Block Party 2017

It was an evening fit for a king (or queen), set in the majestic backlot of Paramount Studios, all in the name of cancer research by the noble organization, the Concern Foundation.  Pulled brisket sliders and fried onion topping was one most exceptional of the offerings, from renowned caterers, “Someone’s in the Kitchen,” along with a memorable buffet of prime rib and horseradish dressing from none other than the knightly Lawry’s The Prime Rib. A line up to gather an abundant platter, yet worth its weight (wait) in gold! Another most popular booth was a Brazilian BBQ buffet by Samba! One of the many memorable desserts was a beautiful eye candy display by Provence Patisserie as well as Gluten free goddess, with cupcakes and brownies to one’s heart’s content, and Bertha Mae’s homemade brownies. Another standout was Dulen’s Soul Food, with a generous serving of collard greens, warm corn bread and fried chicken. And on such a hot midsummer ‘s eve, no block party would be complete without a bounty of libations, and Concern rose to the plate with sips and savors from Tito’s Vodka; Cuban mojitos, belle rose wine , and Reed’s Ginger Beer, among the many samplers.
Vegans/vegetarians need not worry, as there were soy and tofu options provided by Cornucopia caterers; and faux ahi tuna tartare made with compressed watermelon, courtesy of Ocean Prime.
No kingdom celebration/revelry of this caliber would be complete without its many loyal donors and supporters: 4000 people strong- one night-
Raising over $2 million to conquer cancer.
