The store is open Monday-Saturday from 11:00AM-9:00PM.This is a great example of a successful corporation giving back to the community in which they serve. By Westfield Garden State Plaza donating a retail space to bergenPAC, it allows us to extend our reach and ability to fulfill our non-profit mission to a broader number of people,” said Dominic Roncace, President and CEO of bergenPAC.
As part of its mission as a non-profit 501c(3) organization, bergenPAC programs include cultural outreach, programming for individuals with special needs, and free tickets to organizations that serve individuals who would not otherwise have access to the arts for financial reasons. The Performing Arts School at bergenPAC offers classes in dance, theater, music, and more. Scholarships are available – no-one is turned away for inability to pay.
“Westfield Garden State Plaza is thrilled to have Bergen PAC in the center this holiday season,” said Bryan Gaus, Senior General Manager at Westfield Garden State Plaza. “Providing access to music and the arts enhances the customer experience and Bergen PAC is the perfect partner to showcase at Westfield.”
bergenPAC support is provided by sponsorships, ticket sales, memberships, and donations. Member benefits include VIP seating, exclusive presales, access to the member lounge, and more. As a non-profit all donations to bergenPAC are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
