a GREAT success!

a GREAT success!

You could have knocked us over with a feather!

Ballet Palm Beach participated in the Great Give on May 17th.

(The Great Give is a community-wide event where people raise funds for their favorite nonprofits. Money donated gets multiplied by matching funds and there are various prizes and opportunities for organizations to get some great publicity!)

We were amazed by the support we received on May 17th!

Thanks to you, we were the highest ranking non-profitĀ  arts organization in both Palm Beach and Martin Counties. And… the second highest ranking nonprofit overall in Palm Beach County… We also received not one but two prizes for having the greatest number of individual donors at certain times of the day….WHAAAAATT??

In total we raised over 42k!!

So what are we doing with the money? We are raising funds for our brand-new Nutcracker performances at the Kravis Center. And renting the Kravis Center ain’t cheap.

Why such bold move to the Kravis?

Performing The Nutcracker at such a prominent venue, in the heart of the Palm Beaches, will exponentially increase our recognition and revenue potential. (Plus, what an amazing opportunity for our academy dancers to perform on such a large stage)! With more people knowing about us, we will have an increased opportunity to grow our outreach programs, have a larger building to hold more students, offer more scholarships, add dancers to our company …the possibilities are endless!

The Nutcracker is the key!

Thanks to you, we are even closer to our future vision!!

Want to help??
