The Northern New Jersey Business Volunteer Council (BVC) will host “Fun and Games with the BVC” on Friday, October 26th from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm at IKEA, Paramus. IKEA will be transformed into a game-show stage, with guests grabbing vouchers for cash and prizes in the Hudson City Money Machine; the Price is Right, with contestants winning fabulous IKEA prizes; a store-wide scavenger hunt; and Wheel of Fortune.
This annual fund raising event helps the BVC impact the lives of low-income children and families by addressing the big issues of literacy, hunger and education. In the past eleven years, the BVC has generated and distributed well over $1.3 million in resources to local families in need.
Guests are asked to bring non-perishable sandwich fillings, such as peanut butter and jelly, canned tuna or chicken, to be donated to families served by the Center for Food Action in Mahwah.
Tickets are just $50 per person or special rate of $75 per couple, which includes an international all-you-can eat buffet, silent auction, great swag bags, music and games of skill and chance. Tickets can be purchased on-line here or by calling 201-489-9454.
Presenting sponsor for Fun and Games with the BVC is Hudson City Savings Bank. Additional sponsors to date include IKEA, BD, Rockland Electric, United Water, TD Bank and State Farm Insurance.
