What A Pair!

Our Mission

"The whole is more than the sum of its parts." - Aristotle

What A Pair!
is a non-profit 501c3 that was created when a personal tragedy motivated three Hollywood producers to do something to give back. Co-founders Jo Levi DiSante, Jody Price and Ruth Stalford believe that by partnering the right people with the right organizations, allowing folks to share their talent and expertise, we can make the world a better place and enrich lives.

What A Pair!
Since 2002, they have worked with some of the best-known female talent to successfully stage eight Broadway-caliber productions of celebrity duets. They have raised over $3 million dollars to support basic and clinical breast cancer research.

Many of the What A Pair! volunteers involved in the first production remain active today, and through their referral of friends, family, and co-workers, the What a Pair! organization continues to grow. SING! our songwriting mentorship for high school students, and benefit for pediatric cancer research debuted in March 2010.

We recently launched a new literacy program called, The Book Foundation dedicated to promoting literacy and closing the achievement gap in underserved communities (www.thebookfoundation.org).

The What A Pair! organization provides opportunities for a diverse group of people to work together in support of a common cause and to celebrate the healing power of the arts. The goal has always been to ignite a passion for volunteerism and become the catalyst to discovering the joy of philanthropy.

Once again, we have teamed up with
the world-renowned
Cedars-Sinai Samuel Oschin
Comprehensive Cancer Institute
for our upcoming
What A Pair!
10th Anniversary Benefit Concert

What A Pair!
Cedars-Sinai Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute

Net proceeds from the Benefit Concert will go to Cedar-Sinai's breast cancer research and education programs at the Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute.

Cedars-Sinai is breaking new ground with a comprehensive approach to breast cancer research and education by focusing on targeted strategies for prevention, diagnosis, risk assessment and treatment of breast cancer. Together, physicians and scientists collaborate to pursue translational research that promotes discovery and saves lives. Additionally, they come together to educate the next generation of breast care professionals. Funds raised by What A Pair! have led to less invasive breast surgery, a reduction in side effects, breast-conserving techniques, improvement in patients’ quality of life, as well as identification of targeted genes to more effectively fight the most aggressive and difficult-to-treat cancers. The clinical home for breast cancer care at Cedars-Sinai is the Saul and Joyce Brandman Breast Center — A Project of Women’s Guild.
