For those of you who live by AT&T Park, like me, you'll be pleased or terrified to learn that the home of your San Francisco Giants is the second most expensive ballpark to reside by, coming right behind Boston's Fenway Park.

On September 1, Grammy Award winner Alanis Morissette headlined a fundraising concert at Davies Symphony Hall in San Francisco to benefit the building of a new home for UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital. Special guest Jay Leno opened the show, which was underwritten by the Salesforce.com Foundation. DJ will.i.am of The Black Eyed Peas spun at an exclusive after-party.
The new UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital at Mission Bay will be part of a 289-bed integrated hospital complex for children, women and cancer patients. Upon completion in 2014, the 183-bed children’s hospital will set a new world-class standard for patient- and family-centered health care, safety, sustainability and translational medicine.
