TEANECK, N.J. -- The National Council of Jewish Women Bergen County Section will be installing its 93rd year of officers and trustees for 2016-2017 -- and celebrating its successes and achievements -- at the Estate at Florentine Gardens, on June 7.
"I look forward to facing the challenges that the next year will bring to all of us," said Fran Einiger, NCJW Presidium Member.
The celebration will also present the Hannah G. Solomon Award to Richard Mingoia, president and CEO of Youth Consultation Service, and the Woman of the Section Award will be given to Evalyn Brownstein. Mingoia has held those roles since 1996. "Under his inspired guidance, YCS has become the undisputed leader in caring for children in need throughout New Jersey," organizers noted.
YCS provides services to thousands of New Jersey families who have children, from birth to adulthood, with special needs.
Brownstein, a retired special education teacher for the Teaneck school system, currently co-chairs NCJW's HIPPY program -- Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters -- and chairs NCJW's Scholarship Committee, which awards several $1,000 scholarships to young women graduating from Bergen County public high schools.
Attendees will receive a beautiful journal and there will be a raffle drawing.
Tickets for the luncheon are $70, and proceeds will benefit the work of the NCJW. The program will begin at 11 a.m. The afternoon will begin with a pre-lunch buffet, followed by a sit-down luncheon and award presentations. The Estate at Florentine Gardens is located at 97 Rivervale Rd., in River Vale.
