MAKE A DONATION! MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
PNB STARS asks for your support in our effort to fulfill the dreams of Pacific Northwest Ballet School’s talented students as they pursue a professional career in ballet. Your support in either donating in kind or sponsoring a portion of the PNB STARS 9th annual Scholarship Event: “Pointe to the Stars” will help us reach that goal.
Neiman Marcus is graciously partnering with again us this year, providing our guests with an exclusive Spring Trend Fashion Show with over 100 ballet supporters, many professional dancers along with PNB’s Artistic Director, Peter Boal, in attendance at the event. All proceeds will be designated to the PNB STARS Scholarship Fund which supports students of the Pacific Northwest Ballet School, ranked as one of the top three ballet training institutions in the nation.
The event features a fashion show, wine, hors d’oeuvres, and an incredible silent auction that includes exclusive PNB experiences and many other exciting offerings.
Please consider donating an item to be included in this year’s auction or consider underwriting for expenses. If you have any questions, please contact procurement chair, Lisa Hanna at: firstname.lastname@example.org
How do the scholarships make a difference? Here are a few quotes from our past and current recipients:
“Thank you for ordering the shoes. This is GREAT! This is such a life saver and makes such a huge difference for Nazirah. Being able to have multiple pairs of shoes is really going to help her stress level and performance during auditions so much! I'll keep you posted about how these shoes do.” Najja, mom to Nazirah Taylor
“Thank you so much for the point shoes and for everything. It really means a lot! They brought me luck. So far I have been accepted to OBT, SFB, Lines Ballet and ABT Texas summer programs. All your support and encouragement make me happy! Nazirah Taylor, PNB STARS Scholarship Student 2014-2016
"After spending two years in New York at the School of American Ballet it was time for a job. I was invited to attend PNB as a professional division student. Financially coming to yet another school and having no income was not an option-- that is until I received the STARS scholarship. PNB STARS made it possible for me to come to Seattle and pursue a career with one of my dream companies. To this day I am so grateful for the chance to be a part of such an amazing company and for the generosity of PNB STARS!" Price Suddharth
