The Nutcracker Family Benefit

One of New York City’s favorite family events, The Nutcracker Family Benefit on December 14 raised over $800,000 for New York City Ballet’s Education and Outreach Programs and the School of American Ballet’s Scholarship Fund. The Benefit began with a matinee performance of George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker™ followed by a fun-filled holiday party on the Promenade where the guests met dancers from the performance and indulged in a Land of Sweets, experiencing this classic holiday tradition like never before.

For information about the next Nutcracker Family Benefit which will be held on Saturday, December 13, 2014, please contact the Special Events Office at 212-870-5585 or email
