The “Taco Tuesday Networking Fundraiser” is a benefit event being co-sponsored by the GPVCOC and Shelter Our Pets. This is a great opportunity to network with local business people, enjoy a Mexican buffet dinner featuring tacos and Mexican drinks, and raise money for two great causes.
Part of the proceeds from this fun-filled event will go towards providing scholarships to high school seniors in the greater Pascack Valley. The other part of the proceeds will help to provide a specialized service, offering loving care and shelter to pets of abuse victims, either with a foster family or at an area kennel, until they can be reunited with their owners. This event is for members and non-members alike. For tickets, scroll down to the bottom of the page.

Scholarships for Area Students
The Greater Pascack Valley Chamber of Commerce has a long history of providing scholarships to deserving high school seniors throughout the Pascack Valley. This year will be no exception as we will provide the opportunity for eight separate scholarships – one for a student in each of the eight public high schools in the greater Pascack Valley.
The scholarships are given based upon academic achievement AND community service. More specifically, this scholarship is awarded to a senior student who has demonstrated a commitment to his/her community evidenced by volunteer work throughout his/her high school years. Students provides why they feel they should get the award with further specific details on community service activity and their college plans.
