The Giants’ stadium was the place to be this week. Two major concerts happened on Tuesday and Thursday nights. First up was the Dreamforce concert, a benefit for the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals in San Francisco and Oakland, that featured Lenny Kravitz and Alicia Keys. The eighth annual event raised a record-breaking $15 million from sponsorships and ticket sales adding to the nearly $62 million that its raised over the years.

The evening kicked off with a cocktail reception where Mark Laret, the CEO of UCSF Medical Center, and Dr. Michael Anderson, president of UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals, presented the hospital’s patients Cameron and Cailey Tennyson with the UCSF General Colin Powell Medal of Courage Award. Both entered the world with life-threatening heart conditions that required multiple surgeries, invasive procedures, and complications, but through treatment at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals are now leading fulfilling lives and helping others.

Lenny Kravitz performed next, jumping right into his favorites like American Women and Are You Gonna Go My Way. With thick dreads, Kravitz looked like he could be the Weekend’s father. Alicia Keys was the headliner and she stunned the crowd with her beautiful voice. Keys also performed a private performance for sick children and their families at the SF hospital. Several notables attended the concert, including Marc and Lynne Benioff, Ron Conway, Marshawn Lynch, Steve and Miranda Kerr, Draymond Green, and Renel.

Last night was the Band Together Bay Area concert, a benefit to help North Bay fire recovery. It was organized by The Tipping Point Emergency Relief Fund which supports low-income vulnerable people who have been displaced by the devastation. It was quite the evening with Rancid, G-Eazy, Dead and Company, Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds, and Metallica performing. Many companies came out to support the cause purchasing suites with wine, beer, booze, pizza, and crab sandwiches for their employees to enjoy while watching the show. It was a sold out crowd that included first responders and families affected by the disaster.
