The Banner read, "Cheer SF." A sign, held by someone behind the banner, read, "Help us give back to your community external link."

In 1993, CHEER SF became a performing unit of San Francisco's Jon Sims Center for the Performing Arts, thus establishing themselves as an official 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
