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, Becton Dickinson (BD), and United Water. Now we’d like you to meet TD Bank.
TD Bank, “America’s Most Convenient Bank®” is committed to making a meaningful and positive contribution to the individuals, families, businesses and communities where it does business. TD Bank has generously supported the Volunteer Center with grants to purchase a new van for its Chore Service, which provides home repairs for the elderly and disabled; to underwrite training of mentors for its two mentoring programs, Mentoring Moms and Mentoring Youth; and to launch Bergen LEADS, the area’s premier civic leadership program. TD Bank is also a member of the Northern New Jersey Business Volunteer Council, through which hundreds of employees participate in initiatives that help low income families and children, and TD Bank sponsored the Kids’ Events at the recent Bergen Bike Tour, with proceeds benefitting the Volunteer Center and Tomorrows Children’s Fund.
The Heart of Gold Gala is “black tie optional” and will feature cocktails at 7 pm, dinner at 8 pm, followed by entertainment by Beatle Magic – The Ultimate Beatles Experience, who will recreate the aura, look and sound of the Fab Four through numerous phases of the Beatles’ phenomenal career. After the show, there will be dancing until midnight.

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