Show Your Support During Give Back Weekend at Atlanta Ballet's Nutcracker: Dec. 18-20

Support three very worthy causes during Give Back Weekend, December 18-20, at Atlanta Ballet's Nutcracker! We will collect items for Toys for Tots and The Homeless Pets Foundation in the Fox Theatre lobby during the performances that weekend, so please help us make the season a little brighter for local Atlanta children and our furry friends. We also encourage you to visit the website of our partner Susan G. Komen to make an online donation and learn more about the early detection and treatment of breast cancer.

Toys for Tots
Donate unwrapped toys for boys and girls ages 12 and under at the Buckhead Centre, Powers Ferry Centre, and the Michael C. Carlos Dance Centre now through December 18 or at the Fox Theatre December 11 through December 19.

*“Toys for Tots” is an initiative of the U.S. Marine Corps. Atlanta Ballet’s donations will directly support the North Atlanta chapter of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation.

The Homeless Pets Foundation
Make donations for our furry friends at performances of Atlanta Ballet’s Nutcracker during Give Back Weekend, December 18 – 20. Bins will be located in the Fox Theatre arcade, and items can also be dropped off at the marketing table in the lobby. Suggested items: toys, leashes, collars, raw hides, treats, blankets, beds, towels, food bowls, cat litter, and paper towels.

Susan G. Komen Atlanta
For this year’s Give Back Weekend during Atlanta Ballet’s Nutcracker, make a donation to Komen Atlanta to support its mission of enabling our community to detect and survive breast cancer by facilitating access to quality care, providing education, and supporting research.  Seventy-five percent of funds raised stay in Metro Atlanta to provide breast health services for people who might not otherwise be able to afford them.  Twenty-five percent of funds raised support national research efforts to find cures for breast cancer.  For more information and to donate, visit komenatlanta.org
 

Thank you for your support and generosity!
