Classic-rock band Kansas headlined the 5th annual Rock The Cure concert July 19 to help raise funds for Type 1 diabetes, previously called juvenile diabetes. Lisa and Steve Altman hosted the benefit at their cliffside, La Jolla Farms home.

Attendees were treated to tastes from more than a dozen of San Diego’s most popular restaurants, while enjoying panoramic views at the location overlooking La Jolla’s shoreline. Kansas performed a full-set concert, including their hit songs, “Carry On Wayward Son” and “Dust in the Wind.”
