The New York Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NYSPCC), the world’s first child protection agency, held its annual Spring Benefit on Thursday, May 11th at Fishbowl, the newest spot at the Dream Midtown in New York City. The benefit featured signature cocktails, fun bites, a silent auction and of course games (Fishbowl doesn’t just have a fish tank, they also have skeeball and bowling) all aimed to help raise money for the NYSPCC’s many crucial programs.
NYSPCC’s young philanthropists assume social responsibility each year to raise awareness and essential funds for the efforts of the agency which includes helping children heal from abuse and neglect, and helping families grow stronger. Attendees at the benefit included Steering Committee members Mark Lewenstein, Jonathan Klein, Maureen Nash and Hudson Bova.
The organization, founded in 1875, is the first child protective agency in the world and currently provides counseling, legal services and training to teach others. Through research, communications and training initiatives, the NYSPCC helps 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.
