All About Jennifer Lawrence's Block Party

25 Jun 2014

Find out why Jennifer Lawrence rocked out in Kentucky

Jennifer Lawrence's a proper good samaritan - she helped to raise money for a young leukaemia sufferer's medical bills by hosting a block party in Kentucky over the weekend.

Hadley Mercer, a Lawrence family friend, was diagnosed with the blood cancer when she was six months old and recently celebrated her first birthday.

In December 2013, The Hunger Games star visited Mercer, who is now in remission, in the hospital and on 21 June, she threw a block party with her brother Ben through his company, Louisville Geek, to help the family raise funds for Mercer's medical bills.

During the event, Jen raffled off a trip to Belize and signed memorabilia from American Hustle and The Hunger Games films.
