Contortionists, jugglers, acrobats and some 250 supporters gathered for Cirque du Soirée, a circus-themed benefit event for UCSF Partners in Care. Terra Gallery served as the big tent in San Francisco on November 14, 2013.
Funds raised provide grants for special services and programs that help alleviate the stress, pain, and confinement that patients and their families may experience while receiving care at all locations of UCSF Medical Center and UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital.
