Celebrate Your Volunteers with the Volunteer Center

The Volunteer Center of Bergen County will host its annual Celebrate Volunteers recognition event on Wednesday, April 1, 2009 at the Bergen Academies auditorium in Hackensack. Beginning with a 6:30 pm dessert reception, the evening will feature an inspiring program highlighting the ways in which volunteers enhance the community. Brenda Blackmon, popular news anchor for My 9 News, will serve as Master of Ceremonies.

Public and private non-profit organizations, hospitals, libraries, religious organizations and schools in Bergen County are invited to bring volunteers and staff, to this non-competitive, community-wide event. Each organization can choose to honor its top volunteers based on its own criteria for determining exemplary volunteer achievement, such as impact, dedication and loyalty.

“This event is a great way for organizations to honor their volunteers,” explains Janet Sharma, the Volunteer Center’s executive director. “It’s not a competition, and everyone is a winner!”

Reservations are on a first come, first served basis, and are due by March 24, 2008. The cost is $10.00 per person. Call Debbie Emery, (201) 489-9454 ext. 127 to reserve a place.
