New Yorkers For Children hosted its Annual Spring Dinner Dance – New Year’s in April: A Fool’s Fête to benefit youth in foster care in New York City, raising over $725,000. The celebration was presented by Saks Fifth Avenue who joined Lead Beauty Sponsor, Le Métier de Beauté and Event Chairs Dana Auslander, Erika Bearman, Alina Cho, Nicole Esposito, Lydia Fenet, Elisabeth Noel Jones, Amy McFarland, Clare McKeon, Susan Shin, and Honorary Chair Dayssi Olarte de Kanavos in supporting New York City’s youth in foster care. The evening, with décor designed exclusively by David Stark, featured dinner, dancing, featuring DJ D-Nice, and a silent auction.

This year’s Fool’s Fête paid tribute to long time Board Member Oscar de la Renta and the tremendous impact he had on NYFC and its students.



Special guest and Guardian Scholar Shavonn Wheeler addressed the audience, sharing her experiences in foster care. Additional students supported by NYFC were in attendance to celebrate the evening and were styled by the Macy’s, MAC Cosmetics, and Glamsquad.




About New Yorkers for Children



New Yorkers For Children (NYFC) was founded in 1996 by former Commissioner of the Administration for Children’s Services Nicholas Scoppetta, as the non-profit partner to Children’s Services. Over the past seventeen years, donations from individuals, corporations, and foundations have enabled us to support the child welfare community as a whole, as well as those programs that focus on the individual needs of young people in foster care. NYFC has developed programs that make a difference in the lives of young people including college scholarships, tutoring programs, job training, and networking opportunities.
