Proceeds from the gala will benefit the programs and services of GBCA such as the Lois A. Braithwaite Scholarship Fund, which awards scholarships to deserving youths in Bergen County and the cities of Jersey City, Passaic, and Paterson.
If you are unable to attend our event, we ask that you consider making a donation. Each year, our organization assists 50,000 individuals and families in the community with our programs and services, and without donations from individuals like you, this would not be possible.
