ODC Dancers at McEvoy Ranch
The ODC family presented Fall for Art, an afternoon in the natural beauty of Sonoma at the McEvoy Ranch sprinkled with contemporary performances from ODC dancers. On September 30, 2018, some 200 guests wandered the gardens, relaxed by the lake, watched the ODC site-specific vignettes, and enjoyed a delicious al-fresco lunch overlooking the grape arbors and olive grove.
Fall for Art is ODC’s annual celebration and fundraiser for the creation of new work and its youth and teen programs. This year’s event raised $366,000 for the effort.
