DanceFAR



Thank you for another successful event!


"DanceFAR’s (Dance For A Reason) annual fall gala never disappoints. Co-founded by Margaret Karl, Garen Scribner and James Sofranko,
it has been a shining star in the San Francisco dance season for the past four years and 2016’s edition (the fifth anniversary) was no exception."
Heather Desaulniers
Dance Critic

The fifth anniversary of DanceFAR  on November 29th, at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, raised $100,000 to support the Cancer Prevention Institute of California (CPIC)!

Since our first DanceFAR performance in 2012, you have helped us raise over $450,000 to support CPIC’s cancer prevention research and education initiatives. 

 Information on DanceFAR 2017 coming soon!

A passion for dance, a passion for prevention.
