New Yorkers for Children: Gift of Giving

In mid-September Wendeen and her guest, Martin Levine sallied forth to the annual gala for the New Yorkers for Children at Cipriani 42nd Street, enthusiastic about the extraordinary stars they would see that evening. 

A member of the board of directors for more than a decade, Wendeen knew, as usual, that extraordinary would be out in force that night. Yes, there were marquee names, but the honors and ovations were reserved for the true stars of the evening: teens in foster care, who are assisted by NYFC  in making their dreams of college and opportunities beyond schools of hard knocks a reality.
