‘A Taste of Fall’ Fundraiser supports HCC scholarships for students from
East Newark, Harrison, Kearny and North Arlington.

October 20, 2014, Jersey City, NJ – Hudson County Community College (HCCC) Foundation will hold its 4th Annual “A Taste of Fall” West Hudson Scholarship Fundraiser this Thursday, October 23, 2014 at 6 p.m. The venue for the event is the HCCC Culinary Arts Conference Center, 161 Newkirk Street in Jersey City – Just two blocks from the Journal Square PATH Transit Station. Proceeds from the event will benefit deserving HCCC students from East Newark, Harrison, Kearny and North Arlington.

The event – which includes a buffet dinner, entertainment and tricky-tray raffle – is being hosted by the Foundation’s West Hudson Scholarship Committee, a cross-section of local residents, educators, business owners and municipal leaders. The group formed in 2011, inspired by a generous donation from the Pioneer Boys and Girls of America to the Foundation that helped establish a West Hudson scholarship. The Committee works towards developing ways to sustain the scholarship funding for deserving local students enrolled at the college.

“The generosity and support we receive from our West Hudson community for this event grows every year,” said West Hudson Committee Chairman Kenneth H. Lindenfelser. Last year, as a result of the fundraiser, three scholarships were awarded to area students. “We are confident our community will come together once again to support our efforts and join us in this important undertaking for our local students,” he added.

Tickets for “A Taste of Fall” are $60 per person, and may be obtained by contacting Joseph D. Sansone, Hudson County Community College’s Vice President for Development at 201-360-4006 or emailing jsansone@hccc.edu.
