Since its inception in 1965, the Petroushka Ball has been one of New York's most important Russian-American events, attended by over 700 guests representing business, artistic and diplomatic spheres. Past Petroushka Ball events have featured leading soloists of the Metropolitan Opera, the American Ballet Theatre, New York City Ballet, Bolshoi Theater, and other prominent companies.
All net proceeds from the 52nd Petroushka Ball will be directed towards the Russian Children’s Welfare Society (RCWS) charitable programs. Founded in 1926, the RCWS is a 501 c 3 non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of children at risk in Russia. Among RCWS projects are educational scholarships for orphans (currently over 120 students), medical treatment for children with severe facial deformities (annually over 200 little patients receive surgeries), assistance to orphanages, rehabilitation programs for children with special needs, a “Yelka” (Christmas tree) party in Moscow for over 1,000 disadvantaged children visiting from many areas of Russia; and other vital programs.
You can support these programs and be a part of the Petroushka Ball by purchasing tickets to the Ball; placing advertisements in Petroushka Ball program; donating prizes; making a contribution; supplying products for the gift bags. All contributions are tax-deductible.
We are looking forward to seeing you at the 52nd Petroushka Ball. Contact RCWS at 212-473-6263 or [email protected] for tickets, ads, raffle donations, contributions and special sponsorships.
