O What A Night…

By Debbie Emery

The evening of April 6th was a night to remember as we honored the spirit of volunteerism. Hundreds gathered to celebrate the important and selfless ways that volunteers support our community.

Brenda Blackmon, MY9News Anchor and Kathleen Donovan, Bergen County Executive led off the festivities, during which special volunteers and agency directors from non profits, schools, and faith based organizations, were saluted. Students from Bergen County Academies entertained with toe-tapping, finger-snapping selections from 42nd Street.

April is National Volunteer Month, so remember to say ‘thank you’ to friends, relatives and colleagues who give back through volunteering. Thanks also to our sponsors of the evening: Sony Electronics, Dassault Falcon Jet, Lakeland Bank, and TD Bank.
