In Concert for Cancer (ICFC) is an annual concert fundraising event that raises brand awareness and funds for cancer organizations.  ICFC’s mission is to share the joy of world-class live music performance, and in doing so, raise critical dollars for cancer research and patient services.

Our San Diego beneficiary is Scripps Health in La Jolla California. ICFC returns to San Diego September 8, 2012 for its 2nd annual concert event celebrating cancer survivorship in support of Scripps Cancer Center (

Among the announced artists are Jeff Lorber, Eric Marienthal and The Family Stone, featuring original founding members from Sly and The Family Stone, Cynthia Robinson, Jerry Martini and Greg Errico.
