The Miami City Ballet Jewels Society stands as a shining testament to the profound impact of dedicated individuals and organizations in nurturing the arts. This prestigious society was established to honor those whose unwavering commitment to the Miami City Ballet is reflected in cumulative gifts totaling $100,000 or more. Their invaluable support is the bedrock upon which the ballet thrives, enabling the creation of breathtaking performances and ensuring that the magic of dance continues to enrich our community. In recognizing these generous patrons, we celebrate not only their financial contributions but also their enduring belief in the power of dance to inspire, unite, and uplift. The Miami City Ballet Jewels Society is a radiant symbol of the transformative influence of philanthropy in the world of dance and culture.
