In 1936, the Russian Nobility Association in America held their first ball at the Plaza Hotel, attended by “White Russian” émigrés and members of New York Society. Each year since then, the Association has held balls, thé dansants, and supper dances to raise funds to support numerous charitable organizations. The year 2014 marks the 35th anniversary of their Annual “Spring Ball”, the first of which was celebrated in 1979 at the Pierre Hotel. This year, guests will return to the Pierre to dance to the music of the Alex Donner Orchestra, Alex Juskin and the Kalinka Orchestra, and to see a performance by the Barynya Dance Ensemble. The evening is to benefit the Association’s charities in the United States and abroad, which includes the Prince Alexis Scherbatow Scholarship Fund.

The Russian Nobility Association was founded in 1933, and incorporated on December 16th, 1938. It is a non-political, non-profit organization. Its aims are philanthropic and genealogical. The Association directs donations to charitable organizations which provide food, shelter, and medical treatment for disadvantaged persons in Russia, Europe, South America and the United States. It also provides direct aid to orphanages, the indigent elderly, seminaries, and other people in need. Voting membership is exclusively reserved for descendants of individuals who were listed in the nobility archives of the former Russian Imperial Senate. Other membership categories exist. For historical purposes, titled members are recorded with their ancestral titles.
