Our first honoree is...

The Volunteer Center of Bergen County is celebrating its 45th Anniversary this year with a Heart of Gold Gala on Saturday, December 3, 2011, at the Dolce Palisades Hotel in Palisades, NY.  Over the next few weeks we will introduce you to our honorees.  First up is William “Pat” Schuber.

Mr. Schuber is the Seminar Director for Bergen LEADS, which was launched by the Volunteer Center of Bergen County in 2008 and now stands as the county’s premier civic leadership program.  His breadth of knowledge, coupled with his enthusiasm for all facets of Bergen County -- its history, government, economy and systems of healthcare and education, to say nothing of its politics and increasing diversity – is a key asset of this dynamic and engaging program.  Mr. Schuber served as Bergen County Executive for 12 years and left office respected by residents across the political spectrum. He has also served 9 years as a member of the New Jersey State Assembly, 4 years as Mayor of the Borough of Bogota, and currently serves as a Commissioner of the Port Authority.

The Heart of Gold Gala is “black tie optional” and will feature cocktails, dinner, dancing and entertainment by Beatle Magic – The Ultimate Beatles Experience, in keeping with a sub-theme of the gala “With a Little Help from Our Friends.”

Tickets are $175 per person or $1,750 for a table of 10.  To purchase sponsorships, on-line journal ads or tickets, visit    For more information, contact Jane He at (201) 489-9454, Ext. 125.

Major sponsors of the Heart of Gold Gala to date are: BD, United Water, TD Bank, Reader’s Digest, PSE&G, and Lakeland Bank.
