|60th Anniversay of Polish Assistance 1956-2016|
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 was 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 celebrated the 60th anniversary of Polish Assistance, our rich traditions, and most importantly your generosity and compassion for those less fortunate.
To provide assistance, primarily financial, to persons of Polish origin who are at risk or needy.
