Thank you from Nutcracker Kids

In 2023, with the generous support of donors like you, Dance Victoria will provide free Nutcracker tickets to children and their caregivers of Victoria Native Friendship Centre, Victoria Women’s Transition House, Family Services of Greater Victoria, Help Ukraine! Vancouver Island, Ukrainian Safe Haven, Ukrainian Canadian Cultural Society of Vancouver Island, and the Inter-cultural Association of Greater Victoria (ICA). A big thank you to Julie Rust and Greg Phillips, of Rust Phillips Group with Engel & Völkers; Julie has been the Campaign Chair of Nutcracker Kids for several years. Our deep gratitude to the Times Colonist Christmas Fund for their support and to everyone who joined us in making Christmas bright for lots of Nutcracker Kids.
