Russian Children's Welfare Society, Inc.

Petroushka Ball, February 5, The Plaza Hotel

Join us for the 51st PETROUSHKA BALL on February 5th at The Plaza Hotel in New York City, an annual black tie soirée for the benefit of needy children in Russia, featuring performances from Metropolitan Opera stars: Kristine Opolais and Rodion Pogossov.

The Ball is known for not only being a uniquely elegant affair but also a surprisingly electric one, with traditional Russian and gypsy dances going well into the morning hours to the sound of vibrant folk and balalaika music. Since its inception in 1965, the Petroushka Ball has been attended by over 700 guests representing business, artistic and diplomatic spheres.

All net proceeds from the 51st Petroushka Ball will be directed towards Russian Children’s Welfare Society’s charitable programs. RCWS is a 501 c3 US non-profit organization and all contributions are tax deductible. This year RCWS is celebrating its 90th Anniversary.
