The New York Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (The NYSPCC) held its annual Fall Gala at The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Library in Manhattan.

There are so many children in New York City who are suffering deeply in their domestic situations, that are helped by the NYSPCC. Their experience with goodness and care now in these early years are what will determine their experiences and roles in the future lives as friends, fathers, mothers. Everything we can do to rescue, assist, care for these children is a blessing on all of us.
