Deets: Join The New York Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (The NYSPCC) during National Child Abuse Prevention Month for its Sixth Annual Spring Luncheon at The Pierre Hotel in Manhattan on Wednesday, April 19th. This year’s wonderful guest speaker is renowned attorney Eric MacLeish - a long-time advocate for child victims of sexual abuse, recently made famous for being portrayed in the Hollywood film Spotlight.
The Spring Luncheon is an annual event where business leaders, entrepreneurs, philanthropists, and supporters from various backgrounds convene to help raise money for New York’s most vulnerable children. It is a very meaningful day for the agency, raising essential funds for their Trauma Recovery and Safe Touches Program.
April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month, and the Spring Luncheon program will focus on the prevention of child neglect. Neglect is the most common form of child maltreatment. Proceeds from the luncheon will benefit The NYSPCC’s Trauma Recovery Program. The program offers a specialized therapeutic program for children who have experienced neglect, physical or sexual abuse, traumatic bereavement, or who have witnessed family violence.
