The Nutcracker Family Benefit

Saturday, December 9, 2017

One of New York City’s favorite holiday affairs, the 2017 Nutcracker Family Benefit helped raise critical funds for New York City Ballet and its education and outreach programs, in addition to the School of American Ballet's Scholarship Fund. A fun-filled family event, the Benefit began with a matinee performance of George Balanchine's The Nutcracker® and was followed by a holiday party on the Promenade, complete with dancers from the performance who joined in the festivities, signed autographs and took photos with guests.
