This is the YPC’s largest fundraiser of the year and is sure to be an unforgettable night!

All proceeds benefit The NYSPCC and our mission to treat and heal NYC’s abused and neglected children. The NYSPCC’s caring team of highly-skilled clinicians and professional staff provides an array of services to children, families, child welfare professionals, and other concerned community members. These services include therapeutic supervised visitation; trauma-focused counseling; school-based child sexual abuse prevention workshops; and crisis debriefing for child welfare staff.
