New Providence Businesses Have Donated More Than $100,000 Locally in 2014

NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ – During the last year, businesses in New Providence donated more than $100,000 to sponsor local events and provide funding to organizations and charities in the borough. By supporting the merchants who give back to the borough, New Providence residents enable money to stay within the community, creating a virtuous circle benefiting the entire community.

Jimmy Vardas, owner of the Prestige Diner and president of the Downtown Improvement District, has taken the circle one step further by using as many local businesses as possible for the needs of the diner.  Zita’s supplies the ice cream for the diner.  The Prestige Diner’s bagels are purchased from the Bagel Café in New Providence.  Vegetables are sourced from Murph Farms.  The diner’s website was done by local web designer and resident Karin Souren.  Even the diner’s renovation was designed by a local architect.

“If within the community, we can work with each other, we can create a thriving business environment,” said Vardas.  “By supporting the merchants who give back to the town, the money stays in the community, creating a virtuous circle of support within the community.”

Vardas concluded, “So, while you do your shopping this holiday season remember to shop New Providence and support the local businesses that have been donating to so many charities, foundations and events throughout 2014.”
