The Yob Family Foundation
“YFF” is pleased to announce the sixth annual Nutcracker Christmas event benefiting children from the Sullivan Elementary School at Tampa’s Metropolitan Ministries. This event is made possible by the generosity of the Straz Center for the Performing Arts and the talented and entertaining performers from Next Generation Ballet.

In addition to the live performance, the children receive Christmas gifts provided by the Yob Family Foundation, a lunch catered and donated by Chick-Fil-A, as well as a visit with Santa. Jonathan Yob of the Yob Family Foundation stated, “Seeing the smiles and laughter of the children opening their gifts, eating Chick-Fil-A and watching the performance of the Nutcracker is truly precious. The letters we receive from some of the kids afterwards are so touching that this is one of the YFF’s favorite days.” The 2019 event is scheduled for December 13 at the Straz Center for the Performing Arts. Please donate here if you would like to contribute to Metropolitan Ministries.
