Here are a few questions we have received over the years...

What should I wear?

Wearing funk attire is not required, but many people do show up dressed in their funkiest. At a minimum, be sure to bring your dancing shoes, anyone can enter the dance competition and we will have some outstanding prizes including a United Airlines Voucher.

Will tickets be available at the door?
Tickets will be available at the door for $25 based on availability. Be sure to purchase your tickets in advance for the discounted price.

How does the dance competition work?
Don't worry, you don't have to be a professional to enter. In fact, amateurs are highly encouraged. No sign ups are necessary, just come prepared to dance and if our judges see something they like, you might get chosen to make our competition round. The winner will be selected by audience applause so be sure to bring your friends to cheer you on (or simply win over the crowd).

How do I purchase tickets?
Tickets may be purchased online only by visiting our purchase page. If you cannot attend, donations are highly encouraged and in return you will get a tax receipt plus the satisfaction that you are supporting a great charity.

If I purchased tickets online, do I need physical tickets?
No, just be sure to bring your ID to the event and your name will be on the guest list. When purchasing, make sure the name you include matches your ID. Just in case, you may want to bring along proof of purchase.

What are the event hours?
Doors will open at 8pm and the event will end at 1am.

How do I get there?
FAME Venue is located at 443 Broadway St between Kearny and Montgomery in San Francisco. Public transportation is always encouraged (10 blocks from Montgomery BART, located near several bus lines, etc.) although there are several parking lots close by.

Will food be served?
Unfortunately, food will not be served, however, with a great location, many great restaurants are located within walking distance.

How does the silent auction work?
It's easy, the silent auction will run during the early hours of the event and will feature some great items you will love. Simply place your bid, name, phone and email next to the item and upon closing if you are the highest bidder, you win. We will take credit card payment on the night of the event, so you can take home your prize right away. Remember, this is all for a good cause so bid away. To view an ever-growing list of items, be sure to visit our auction/raffle page.

Where does the money from the event go?
100% of proceeds from the event go to support the work of Real Options for City Kids, or R.O.C.K. for short. Be sure to visit for more information.
