The charity concert organised by the Carolin Illenzeer Foundation took place for the first time in 2012, and this year's concert marked the 10th anniversary of this cordial event. The concert featured the best Estonian musicians - Tanel Padar, Liisi Koikson, Marko Matvere, Jüri Pootsmann, Elina Born, Toomas Uibo, Eleryn Tiit and Kéa.

The Carolin Illenzeer Foundation is named after Caroline, the daughter of Senior Lieutenant Arre Illenzeer, who died on a foreign mission to Iraq in 2005. At that time, friends from the Defense Forces began to support the family. Foreign missions continued and sad reports kept coming and as a result the Carolin Illenzeer Foundation was set up to help families in a similar situation. The foundation supports the education and hobbies of the children on its list.
