60 years ago, a successful and philanthropic group of Americans of Polish heritage formed an organization to support World War II heroes who immigrated to America from Poland to escape communism. Today, a new generation of successful and philanthropic Polish Americans is upholding the tradition of providing assistance to individuals who are at risk or in crisis due to poverty, mental or physical illness. Their support enables our organization to bring stability to these individuals by providing basic needs for housing, food and healthcare.
Our main fundraiser is the annual Bal Polonaise. The first fundraising ball, was organized by Count and Countess Jan Dembinski, Maestro and Mrs. Arthur Rubinstein and the cosmetics queen Helena Rubinstein. The 57th Annual Bal Polonaise is scheduled to be held on Saturday, February 6, 2016 at the prestigious and magnificent Grand Ballroom of the Plaza Hotel in New York City. The Plaza has been host to many of the Bal Polonaise fundraisers. We will be celebrating the 60th anniversary of Polish Assistance, our rich traditions, and most importantly your generosity and compassion for those less fortunate.
We are asking you to take part in our fundraising efforts. Please invite to the Bal Polonaise your family, friends and associates. Make it a memorable evening. Introduce Poland's rich heritage and culture to those who may not have had the opportunity to appreciate its grandeur. The Bal Polonaise is a premier international New York Society event. It receives prominence by Bill Cunningham in his New York Times' Evening Hours Section
