The Plaza Hotel | New York, NY


We checked in over 700 people at the annual Petroushka Ball hosted by the Russian Children’s Welfare Society, Inc. The event, held at The Plaza Hotel’s Grand Ballroom & Terrace Room, is a “uniquely elegant affair” with traditional Russian and gypsy dances lasting well into the morning hours accompanied by vibrant folk and balalaika music.

This year marked number 51 for the annual black tie soirée which also featured special guest stars of theMetropolitan Opera, Rodion Pogossov (baritone) and Olga Mykytenko (soprano). As always, all net proceeds from the event were directed to the Russian Children’s Welfare Society’s charitable programs.
The beautiful and artistic event was certainly a celebration to remember!
