To Ukraine, With Love - Benefit Performance
Tuesday at 8:00 PM EDT
As the crisis in Ukraine deepens, the dancers of Miami City Ballet felt compelled to help Ukrainians the best way we know how – through dance. We feel an urgency to transform our love of dance into something tangible for people in need. To Ukraine, With Love is born from this desire to give back. The original To Florida, With Love pop-up performances were created amid the devastation of the pandemic as a gift to the community, to bring joy, hope, and moments of beauty. To Ukraine, With Love is an extension of this sentiment.
The dancers of Miami City Ballet invite you to enjoy an evening benefitting Ukraine on Tuesday, May 31, at 8:00pm, in the Lynn & Louis Wolfson, II Theater located at 2200 Liberty Avenue, Miami Beach, FL, 33139, MCB’s home studios. We hope you will join us for this special evening of dance featuring 10 short works, some new and some revived from our To Florida, With Love pop-up series, all choreographed and performed by your MCB dancers. Tickets are free and the event is by donation only. Seating is limited and advanced registration is required. All proceeds will be evenly distributed to Voices of Children and World Central Kitchen. Both organizations are doing tremendous on-the-ground work in Ukraine.
We look forward to sharing the evening with you. If you cannot join us, we hope you’ll consider donating to this important cause. Thank you so much for your support. Please give generously!
The Voices of Children Foundation is a Ukraine-based nonprofit organization that has been helping children affected by the war since 2015. Thanks to you, we provide psychological and psychosocial support to children. It helps them overcome the consequences of armed conflict and develop. Today, during the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine, we are providing non-stop assistance to affected children and families from all over the country, providing emergency psychological assistance, and assisting in the evacuation process. We are providing psychological support non-stop. More than 50 psychologists are already working with us. We are helping to evacuate families with children, seeking housing for them, providing them with food and clothing. Please support us so that more children and their families suffering from war receive psychological help and can find shelter.
Across Ukraine, WCK teams have distributed nearly 11 million pounds of food including flour, salt, pasta, oil, cheese, produce, canned meats, and more! Tatiana, who manages our warehouse in Kyiv, told us she gets calls from recipient families: “I hear stories of survival and how vital the food bags are, they’re lifelines.” With your support, WCK has built the largest food relief operation in Ukraine, reaching more than 230 cities and towns. Combined with the seven other countries we are still cooking in daily, WCK has now served 25 million meals. This work wouldn't be possible without the 4,300 team members – cooking in restaurants, stocking warehouses, delivering meals, driving trucks – who work tirelessly to feed their neighbors in need, even while under attack themselves. These are the Food Fighters of Ukraine.
