Archerd salute benefits cancer research

Tonight’s salute to Army Archerd will benefit cancer research scientists world-wide through the funds raised for the Concern Foundation.

The Beverly Hills-based non profit organization raises more than $ 1 million annually, which it awards in research grants to scientists around the globe for work in cancer immunology and immunotherapy.

The Concern Foundation for Cancer Research was originally founded in 1968 by 14 couples whose lives had been touched by the tragedy of cancer. Today, the foundation has more than 9,000 contributors.

The organization’s best-known fund raiser is the annual Rodeo Drive Block Party, held each May in Beverly Hills and now in its 21st year.
