Posted: September 06, 2019

State Street Ballet will host their annual gala evening, in honor of Sara Miller McCune. Her entrepreneurial spirit and dedication to the arts will be celebrated at the Four Seasons Biltmore on Sunday evening, September 22 at the annual black-tie soirée with cocktails, dinner, and dance vignettes by members of the State Street Ballet ensemble. A spirited live auction will also help raise funds for the 25-year old dance company.

Sara Miller McCune is an American businesswoman and philanthropist. She is the co-founder and executive chairman of SAGE Publishing. Her illustrious career is well known in the world of philanthropy and State Street Ballet is proud to honor Ms. McCune’s passion for supporting the arts. She was integral in restoring and reopening The Granada Theatre in 2008, and has been a premiere sponsor of some of our most celebrated productions.

Ms. McCune has a long and highly respected history of providing financial support to numerous organizations in the greater Santa Barbara community including Santa Barbara Symphony, Ensemble Theatre Company, Santa Barbara Center for the Performing Arts, and SAGE Center for the Study of the Mind at University of California - Santa Barbara.
