Please join our family-friendly dance extravaganza at Marin Foster Care's inaugural Dance-a-Thon & Family Festival held at the Bay Area Discovery Museum on Sunday, April 28th from 2:30 - 4:30pm to benefit Marin County's foster children.

Dancing and fundraising are OPTIONAL: but the party is not!   We want to see your smiling faces HERE!  Fun face-painting, live DJ music, snacks, bubble machine, red carpet, photo booth and more.  The afternoon is designed as a tangible way to get children of all ages involved in the act of philanthropy while building community and supporting our local foster youth.

We are also raffling awesome prizes for participants: Disneyland Tickets, SF Giants autographed memorabilia, a Sports Package, Wellness Package, restaurant gift certificates, kids music and dance classes, earth friendly toys...and more.

Sponsors include Golden State Warriors, SF Giants, Bay Area Parent Magazine, Clover Dairy, Style Bar, Hint Water, Piatti's, L'Appart Resto, Yoga Works, Cycle Bar, Madison Reed Color Bar, Tutu Ballet, CuCu Playhouse, Fit2Go Mobile Training, Little Folkies, The Daily Method, Massage Envy, Eventful Events, Foundation Homes Property Management....and many more local companies!

Will you be a part of the movement to help the over 100 local foster kids who have been removed from their homes in Marin?

Foster Care Looks a Lot Like You

Why We are Dancing

Did you know? 

Every year in Marin County over 100 children aged newborn to young adult have open cases in the dependency system and dozens of families are impacted by trauma associated with abuse and neglect.  Due to a shortage of foster homes in Marin, about ¼ of our children (mostly teens) have to be placed out of county. Yet the face of foster care in Marin remains shadowed.  Please help raise awareness and support the children in our community.

MFCA’s fundraising efforts focus on continuing programs that ensure:

  • Every Marin foster child has access to funds for tutoring and enrichment
  • Marin foster children receive needed clothing, toys and sports equipment, school and safety supplies 
  • Marin foster caregivers have training and assistance navigating the complex dependency system
  • Marin foster children and their caregivers enjoy community-building events and outings
  • Marin foster children and their caregivers have an active, informed advocate in their community
