Please join us in support of The Nutcracker Ball’s 33rd Celebration!
Thirty-three years ago, some Charlotte families were inspired to host an elegant holiday evening to benefit charity organizations near to their hearts. Their mission was to create a fun-filled atmosphere for families, while demonstrating to their children the power of philanthropy. The 2021 charity beneficiary is Baby Bundles.
Out of an abundance of caution for the health and well-being of our children, an in-person event will not be possible due to COVID-19 so, we are bringing the spirit of this event to your home!
This year, the Nutcracker Ball will be a cookie drive for our children. Each family registered will receive a Nutcracker themed cookie kit and will donate a cookie kit to a Baby Bundles recipient. Each kit will include one dozen (12) Nutcracker themed sugar cookies, icing and sprinkles. Children can then decorate the cookies and have a fun party in the safety of their own home.
Baby Bundles’ mission is to provide essential baby items to expectant mothers in Mecklenburg County who live at or below the poverty line. Each bundle includes outfits, onesies, pajamas, blankets, bibs, burp cloths, socks, hats, children’s books and developmental toys. Funds raised by this year’s Nutcracker Ball will be used to purchase the 40 essential items that go into each bundle. Your sponsorship also supports the 18 other charities in Mecklenburg County, who receive the bundles to distribute to the mothers with the greatest need.
In this legendary tale, the Nutcracker sits under the holiday tree, a guardian of childhood stories. By your support of Baby Bundles, in our 2021 Nutcracker Ball, you will transform the childhood stories of many babies.
While the format will look a little different this year, you and your family can still support this wonderful cause. Please reach out to Paula Foust, Baby Bundles Executive Director, for additional information on how you can support the Nutcracker Ball.
Thank you for your consideration, and we hope you will join us!
