The event took place at Rolling Greens on Mateo in Downtown Los Angeles and featured star-studded performances, including an acoustic set from John Mayer, carnival games, a celebrity-hosted live auction, food trucks, drinks, and laughs.

"10 years is truly a milestone, and we celebrated the only way we knew how, with a giant birthday bash and lots of laughs! We are so thankful to our community of supporters who have enabled HFC to grow into the innovative and impactful organization we are today. Our board, donors, sponsors, friends, and supporters: we feel so hopeful with them on this mission with us. Care for caregivers and brain health education remain our focus and we intend to invest and advance for as long as it takes to end Alzheimer's and its negative impact on families," said Seth Rogen & Lauren Miller Rogen.
