PNC Wealth Management has signed on as the 2014 lead sponsor for Bergen LEADS Fifth Friday, a powerful networking and learning event that attracts leaders from every sector in Bergen County.
Fifth Friday luncheons will take place this year on January 31, May 30 and October 31 at the Stony Hill Inn in Hackensack - the perfect venue for stimulating conversation, a delicious lunch and high profile speakers. Fifth Friday is hosted by Bergen LEADS, the area’s premier civic leadership program, which is a program of the Volunteer Center of Bergen County.
“Fifth Friday is an excellent fit with our stated purpose of developing networks and exploring current issues,” says Amanda Missey, director of Bergen LEADS. “Response to the event has been overwhelming, and we’re very excited to have the support of PNC Wealth Management for the series this year.”
“PNC Wealth Management is proud to once again partner with the Volunteer Center of Bergen County for the 2014 Bergen LEAD's Fifth Friday series,” says Theresa de Leon, senior vice president and director of PNC Wealth Management. “PNC is proud of its commitment to leadership within Bergen County and we are delighted to demonstrate our continued support through this partnership that reaches hundreds of organizations and leaders. It is just one example of the community values we share.”
