Children’s Day

On 24 May 2019, the Planet of Happiness and Love! charity festival dedicated to the International Children's Day was held in St. Petersburg. The event was attended by 250 children from vulnerable social groups of St. Petersburg and Leningrad Region: residents of social institutions, inmates of rehabilitation centers, and children with special health needs, as well as children from large families.

The young guests were welcomed by a string quartet on the main staircase of the House of Officers’ Assembly, where the event took place. They then proceeded to the hall where students and graduates of the Vaganova Ballet Academy organized a special concert for them. At the end of the event, each child received a soft toy, a book and sweets as a gift.

In advance of the Children's Day, festive performances were held at Pavlovsk Orphanage No. 4 for Mentally Disabled Children and Peterhof Orphanage No. 1 for Disabled Children and Children with Special Developmental Needs. The children who were not able to travel outside the social institution saw a bubble show.

All events were organized by ANFPO (Autonomous Not-For-Profit Organization) House of Future with the support of Gazprom export LLC.
