Trey Songz, Dree Hemingway, Erika Bearman, Frederic Fekkai and more came out to raise money for youth in foster care.



New Yorkers For Children's biannual galas in the Spring and Fall are always a hot ticket. The chic guest list never disappoints and the cause it benefits is something everyone generously gets behind. Since this year marked the 20th anniversary of the gala (it's headlining sponsor is French fashion house Chloé), party-goers were particularly determined to have fun and give back. The philanthropic spirit was palpable as Christie's auctioneer Lydia Fenet took the stage; an attendee sitting at my table who was blessed with paddle #69 was so inspired to give back he raised his number for three separate scholarships.

In total the evening raised more than $1.3 million dollars to benefit youth in foster care in New York City.
