The Great Give is May 5 – 6, 5pm – 5pm & Ballet Palm Beach is a part of it!
24-hours CAN change our season!
On May 5-6, 2015, from 5 p.m. to 5 p.m., Ballet Palm Beach (BPB) is participating in the Great Give, an online giving event led by the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties, United Way of Palm Beach County and United Way of Martin County. Supporting local arts is important and your donation enables Ballet Palm Beach to continue to provide our community with beautiful main stage ballets, education for young dancers through our scholarship fund, employment for local professional dancers, and community outreach that brings ballet to the young and elderly who can not make it to the theatre.
Next season, we are excited to bring to the stage Gatsby, a new and original production inspired by F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby. New productions are thrilling, but expensive requiring an investment in costumes, sets and talent. Your support will help make this new production the best that it can be! BPB will also perform community favorite The Nutcracker, a mixed repertory that includes Act II of Swan Lake, and close the season with the enchanting Cinderella. Our commitment to community outreach will be stronger than ever as we perform Peter and the Wolf with live music from the Palm Beach Symphony. More details will be announced in the coming weeks.
Gifts made through the Great Give will receive a portion of bonus funds – making your dollar go even further than it would on any other day. You may pre-pledge a donation amount through our office by calling 561.630.8235 and we will process the payment on May 6th or you may go to Ballet Palm Beach’s Great Give webpage at balletpalmbeach.org and make an online donation on May 5-6, 2015, from 5 p.m. to 5 p.m. Remember – 24-hours can change our season!
