New Yorkers For Children (NYFC) celebrated the 2013 Fall Gala on Tuesday, September 17, 2013 at Cipriani 42, raising over $1.2 million to benefit youth in foster care in New York City. NYFC Founder and President Emeritus Nicholas Scoppetta, who was himself in foster care as a child, was honored with a lifetime achievement award for child welfare. The above film shares Nicholas Scoppetta’s journey from foster care and highlights his inspirational work as the first Commissioner for the New York City Administration for Children’s Services and founder of NYFC.

The film by Kat Westergaard and Chris Ciancimino was shared with Fall Gala guests to celebrate Nicholas Scoppetta’s 17 years of leadership, which has allowed NYFC to distribute more than $50 million to support youth in care.
