On Wednesday March 8th, a well-heeled crowd of 185 guests attended the annual New York Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NYSPCC) Junior Committee benefit. This year’s theme was “Savor The City”, and fittingly the event was held at the Gansevoort Park Hotel’s notable eatery, Asellina.


Fundraisers enjoyed top shelf cocktails, delicious hors d’oeuvres and decadent desserts while perusing all the fabulous items up for silent auction to benefit the NYSPCC’s Trauma Recovery Program. Over 250 cases of child abuse are reported every day in New York City. Since 2005, the NYSPCC Junior Committee has raised funds to help this important program.


The “Savor The City” cocktail event was a huge success and packed Asellina, raising more than $47,000 for the Trauma Recovery Program. The evening’s corporate sponsor, Exhale Mind Body Spa, ensured guests left feeling excited to use the evening’s parting gift for their yoga and spa services.
