Who says that charity can’t be fun? At the New York Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children’s (NYSPCC) annual Food and Wine Gala on Tuesday, good deeds and good wine both flowed. A delicious dinner of fennel dusted duck, prepared by chef Michael Ferraro of Delicatessen and Macbar, was paired with wines from the La Scolca, Marziano Abbona and Baer wineries. The evening’s main event was a food-focused conversation between Deborah Norville and Nina and Tim Zagat. But the night was about more than just food. “We are the go-to agency for New York City” said Dr. Mary L. Pulido, the New York Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children’s executive director. “When you hear about a horrific story in the media, we are called to help. When a child endures indescribable abuse, we are called to provide counseling in our trauma recovery program.”


Since 1875, the New York Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children has been one of the world’s leading child protection agencies. It has investigated more than 650,000 cases on behalf of over 2,000,000 children. Tuesday night’s gala helped raise over $700,000. Guests included Jennifer CreelHilary Geary RossPrincess Marina of GreeceDayssi Olarte de KanavosAmanda and Neil FriedmanValesca Guerrand-HermesKimberly GuilfoyleCheryl CasoneAinsley Earhardt, Jean ShafiroffJamie and Cynthia KempnerSandra RipertDori Cooperman, Frederick Anderson, Karl Wellner, Marcy WarrenKalliope KarellaGigi GrinstadDiandra DouglasUlla ParkerOlivia FlattoKathleen GiordanoElbridge and Kitty GerryAntonio Vendome and Tatiana and Thorne Perkin.
