Gatherings

Whether it’s at a fundraising gala or a charity luncheon, Bergenites show support for their friends and neighbors.




HELLENIC WOMEN’S CLUB OF BERGEN COUNTY 

The Hellenic Women’s Club of Bergen County recently held its spring charity luncheon at the Knickerbocker Country Club in Tenafly. Chef Maria Loi, cookbook author and founder of ELPIDA (Association of Friends of Children with Cancer in Greece), was the event’s guest speaker. Proceeds from the luncheon are set to benefit ELPIDA.

JEWISH FEDERATION OF NORTHERN NEW JERSEY 

The Jewish Federation of Northern New Jersey recently held its annual “Women’s Philanthropy Spring Luncheon” at the Rockleigh Country Club. The event brought together 500 local ladies for an afternoon dedicated to celebrating the power of women. Jenna Bush Hager, NBC television personality and daughter of former President George W. Bush, was a guest speaker in conversation with TV reporter Jen Maxfield. Stacey Weiss, Joan Krieger and Barbara Joyce were this year’s honorees. 

THEODORA’S GRACIOUS GIFT & DESIGN

With the complimentary design services of Theodora’s Gracious Gift & Design, ARC’s Franklin Square (a campus for high school graduates with learning disabilities) was completely renovated. Theodora’s in Allendale also donated a portion of its May 2018 sale proceeds to the learning center, so that new furniture could be purchased. To celebrate and raise additional funds, the two organizations hosted a cocktail hour and trunk show, courtesy of OG Gems in Closter.

THE COMMUNITY CHEST 

The Community Chest hosted its annual spring gala at the Montammy Golf Club in Alpine, with more than 200 guests in attendance. The nonprofit organization raised a record $130,000, which will be directed to its competitive awards campaign. Over 20 local agencies are set to receive these grants, so that they can continue to support a range of concerns like hunger, afterschool programming, elderly care, career counseling for women and choral music instruction for young students.

ALZHEIMER’S NEW JERSEY 

Alzheimer’s New Jersey recently held its annual gala to celebrate its work and fundraising efforts from the past year. Guests enjoyed a catered dinner, live entertainment and a silent auction. The 2018 Circle of Honor Award for Corporation of the Year was presented to Educational Testing Services; and Tony Dearing, director of news operations for NJ Advance Media, received the Circle of Honor Award for Spirit. Broadway star Joe Barbara, a Saddle River resident, was also recognized for his networking and outreach efforts.
