Raising Funds in Fun at New York Center for Children Spring Benefit

Raising Funds in Fun at New York Center for Children Spring Benefit

Last week The New York Center for Children hosted a glorious celebration for the 23rd Annual Spring Celebration Benefit at the Clement Restaurant at The Peninsula New York. This year, the NYCC celebrated more than 23 years of helping the most vulnerable children achieve their full potential.

The event raised more than $180,000 toward the organization’s mission to support victims of child abuse and their families.  Nearly 200 hundred guests gathered for cocktails & hors d’oeuvres and participated in a silent auction to benefit the charity, which took place throughout the evening.

The benefit, which coincided with National Child Abuse Prevention Month, helped to raise funds for the Center’s work in healing, prevention and education. This year’s event featured a “Lift Me Up” theme, which reflected the organization’s aim to bring about hope and help children achieve their dreams. The benefit featured live music by Award Winning Eco-Music Ensemble Englewinds, and a silent auction featuring coveted travel offers, fine dining, tickets to cultural performances, high end fashion accessories and more.

Honorary Chair of the NYCC Board of Directors, Kate Spade, believes that at the Center, “Children are supported in their journey to a safer place.” To date, the center has helped more than 15,000 families receive care. The New York Center for Children also provides groundbreaking training programs on the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of child abuse, attended by medical students, doctors, nurses and first responders worldwide. More than 20,000 professionals have been trained through NYCC’s educational programs.

Founded in 1995, NYCC is the only independent center in New York City to provide free, comprehensive evaluation and therapy services to children who have experienced physical and sexual abuse and their families, for as long as their healing requires. The dedicated staff will never turn a child in need away. The NYCC is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit that relies on donations to ensure it is able to provide these services.
