The New York Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NYSPCC), the world’s first child protection agency, will hold its Annual Junior Committee Spring Benefit on Monday, May 5, 2014 at Asellina in The Gansevoort Park Hotel. Cinco de Mayo will be the theme of this year’s benefit. The evening will feature signature cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, along with a silent auction of highly covetable items and experiences.
The NYSPCC’s set of young philanthropists assume social responsibility each year to raise essential funds for the efforts of the agency, thereby helping children heal from abuse and neglect, and helping families grow stronger. The Junior Committee of TheNYSPCC has been supporting the efforts of the agency since 2005.
The New York Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NYSPCC), founded in 1875, is the first – and one of the most highly respected – child protective agencies in the world. The NYSPCC responds to the complex needs of abused and neglected children, and those involved in their care, by providing best practice counseling, legal and educational services. Through research, communications and training initiatives, we work to expand these programs to prevent abuse and help more children heal.
The NYSPCC’s unique work is used as a model for child welfare agencies across the nation. Since its founding, The NYSPCC has investigated more than 650,000 cases on the behalf of over two million children, and has educated over 46,000 professionals on how to identify and report child abuse and neglect.
