On Tuesday night, Bay Area notables and Salesforce’s Dreamforce attendees filled AT&T Park for the eighth annual Concert for UCSF Benioff Children's Hospitals, a benefit held in conjunction with the tech company's convention that takes over SoMa.

The event featured live performances by Alicia Keys and Lenny Kravitz, followed by an after-party hosted by will.i.am and MC Hammer at Pier 48.

Organizers raised a record-breaking $15 million from sponsorships and ticket sales; over eight years, Salesforce has raised nearly $62 million for UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals.
