The New York Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, the oldest charity of its kind in the United States, is dedicated to helping at-risk kids in New York City.

This is the quintessential New York gathering of young professionals and philanthropists, and it benefits the amazing work of The NYSPCC, one of the most admired child-protective organizations in the world.

You are invited to step into the new Empire Room in the Empire State Building (through a new, private entrance!) to enjoy cocktails, appetizers and a silent auction at the “Empire State of Mind” benefit on May 26. (Donate a bit extra and gain access to “ESB After Dark” at the 86th floor Observatory, where a live jazz saxophonist will be accompanying the breathtaking sights of Manhattan until the wee hours.)

The Empire Room is a 3,500-square-foot lounge in the former post office space of the landmark building’s ground floor. The plush space (the creation of Mark Grossich, who also designed the Campbell Apartment in Grand Central Station) celebrates the iconic Art Deco heritage of the building with modern takes on 1920s decadence: mohair and velvet banquettes, and embossed-leather furniture.
