The Nutcracker Family Benefit

Saturday, December 13, 2014

One of New York City’s favorite holiday affairs, the 2014 Nutcracker Family Benefit raised a record breaking $908,000 for New York City Ballet's education and outreach programs and the School of American Ballet's Scholarship Fund. Always a fun-filled family event, the Benefit began with a matinee performance of George Balanchine's The NutcrackerTM and was followed by a holiday party on the Promenade, complete with dancers from the performance to meet guests, sign autographs, and join in the festivities. 

The 2014 Nutcracker Family Benefit was generously sponsored by Bonpoint. Table centerpieces were provided by Ladurée.
