Normally the NPBPA sponsors the Annual Holiday Party for the Borough of New Providence around mid December for all members of the Business Community (the New Providence Business & Professional Association and the New Providence Downtown Improvement District) along with all Borough employees and volunteers.  However, Super Storm Sandy wrecked extreme havoc on the Jersey Shore this year and caused considerable hardship here in New Providence as well.

Therefore, instead of the usual December Holiday Party, the NPBPA had a special reception on Monday, January 7, 2012 at the Senior Citizens Center to express our appreciation to all of the employees and volunteers dedicated to the Borough as well as recognizing all of those who helped New Providence through this extreme storm. The event was sponsored by local businesses and a number of our local restaurants volunteered to provide the food for the reception:

Member Name Business Name Sponsorship Level
Gary Kapner Creative Wallcoverings Host
Mike DelDuca Prudential NJ Properties Host
Norm Sobin Cartridge World Sponsor
Mort O’Shea Hilltop Community Bank Sponsor
Ted Kapuscinski Kapuscinski / Luongo Sponsor
Clare Wherely Lassus Wherely Wealth Management Sponsor
Susan Milani Summit Medical Group Sponsor
Jimmy Vardas Prestige Dinner Sponsor
Paolo Viera Paolo’s Kitchen Sponsor

Thanks again to all the employees, volunteers and businesses that have stepped up to helped our community. Proceeds from the event will be donated to the Community Service Association of New Providence (CSA). CSA is a New Providence based non-profit organization that helps New Providence residents through tough times.
