The Hudson County Community College (HCCC) Foundationâ€™s Annual Holiday Gala â€“ a virtual â€œGala @ Homeâ€ â€“ was held on (Thursday, December 3) at 6 p.m. Proceeds from the celebration will fund scholarships for deserving students, the Foundation Art Collection, faculty development, and the Collegeâ€™s physical expansion.
HCCC President, Dr. Chris Reber, and Dr. Nicholas Chiaravalloti, Vice President of External Affairs & Senior Counsel to the President, opened the online event with a welcoming toast at the Collegeâ€™s official Facebook page, www.facebook.com/hcccedu
Donors to the event received a basket filled with a gourmet dinner prepared by chefs of the award-winning HCCC Culinary Arts Institute.
