Our Third 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 past few weeks we’ve been introducing our distinguished honorees to you; so far you’ve met William “Pat” Schuber and Becton Dickinson (BD).  Now we’d like you to meet United Water.

United Water New Jersey provides water services to approximately 750,000 people throughout Bergen and Hudson counties plus several hundred in Sussex and Passaic counties.  United Water has been a good friend of the Volunteer Center throughout its existence. In 1994, the company helped to establish a unique public-private collaboration that became the Bergen County Campership Fund. This initiative, for which the Volunteer Center continues to serve as custodian of funds, has since generated more than $500,000, enabling children of low-income families to enjoy the healthful benefits of summer daycamp.  United Water helped to establish and remains deeply committed  to the Northern New Jersey Business Volunteer Council and Bergen LEADS.  United Water has hosted various fundraising and networking events for the Volunteer Center, as well as providing ample supplies of water for numerous  special events.

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.”

Deadline to purchase tickets is Monday, November 28, and tickets are $175 per person.  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.
