BVC Hosts Night at the Races

The Northern New Jersey Business Volunteer Council (BVC) recently held its sixth annual Night at the Races at the Meadowlands Racetrack. More than 150 people attended the event, which raised $10,000 to support the BVC’s efforts on behalf of needy children and families. Most guests brought new board games for children at the YCS Holley Center in Hackensack, a residential treatment center for children who have been abused and neglected. Pictured here collecting the games are: Janet Sharma, executive director of the Volunteer Center of Bergen County, Ruthie Harper, YCS, Adrienne Zuendt, Hudson City Savings Bank and co-chair of the BVC, Robin Peck, YCS and Amanda Missey, BVC Manager.The BVC is an alliance of 30+ companies whose employees participate in strategic initiatives that benefit children and families. Since its launch in 2000, the BVC has generated nearly $900,000 in resources to help those in need.
