Hudson County Community College Foundation 21st Annual Holiday Gala Celebration, a Success!

This year marked the 21st anniversary of the fundraiser, and the theme was “Americana.” Guests toured the program kitchens of the HCCC Culinary Arts Institute (CAI) and enjoyed hors d’oeuvres, main dishes, side dishes, and desserts representing various regions of the USA. All of the delicious cuisine was prepared by the College’s Culinary Arts Institute (CAI) chefs/instructors and students, and served by CAI students.  The HCCC CAI program – which is ranked among the top ten culinary programs in the U.S. – is one of only two programs in the region accredited by the American Culinary Federation Accrediting Commission.


On Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2018, the Hudson County Community College Foundation held its 21st Annual Holiday Extravaganza. The annual Distinguished Community Service Awardwas presented to Barbara and William Netchert (second and third from left). Pictured with the Netcherts from left are Anthony Romano, Hudson County Freeholder; HCCC President Chris Reber, Ph.D.; Richard Mackiewicz, Jr., HCCC Foundation Chair; and Nicholas Chiaravalloti, HCCC Vice President for Planning and Development & Assistant to the President.

One of the evening’s highlights was the presentation of the Hudson County Community College Foundation 2018 Distinguished Community Service Award to Barbara and William Netchert. Mr. Netchert is an attorney with the firm of Netchert, Dineen & Hillman and serves as General Counsel for the Hudson County Improvement Authority. A member of HCCC Board of Trustees since 2003, he has been Chairman of the Board since 2005, and has been instrumental in the College’s incredible growth.  An integral part of the county and the College, Ms. Netchert served as Hudson County Clerk for more than 10 years. She was also Director of Jersey City Housing, Economic Development and Commerce, and Executive Director of the Jersey City Redevelopment Agency.
