Foundation F.O.C.U.S. was formed in 2009 by Polow Da Don (Zone 4, Inc. CEO) and Mia Welsh (General Manager of Zone 4, Inc.). Cancers 4 a Cause was birthed out of the need to educate the community about the growing epidemic of cancer. Statistics show that by 2011, 1 out of 3 individuals will be Â diagnosed with some form of cancer. This yearâ€™s Cancers 4 a Cause benefit was entertaining from start to finish. Zone 4, Inc. and Foundation F.O.C.U.S. have teamed up with The American Cancer Society, music publishing giant BMI, and lifestyle publication Sister 2 Sister Magazine to orchestrate a dynamic evening where fashion and music collide.

There was also musical performances throughout the course of the show.
