Hackensack, NJ January 16, 2014: The Shops at Riverside and the Hackensack Regional Chamber of Commerce have joined forces to celebrate this years’ Big Game coming to New Jersey. A Super Saturday event will be held on Feb.1, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Barnes & Noble wing of the Shops at Riverside.
Help the Hackensack Regional Chamber of Commerce to set a RecordSetter World Record (recordsetter.com) for the largest marshmallow snowman, dubbed “Toasty”. Sponsored by Hackensack’s CHiT CHaT Diner, visitors are invited to participate in the history-making event by donating $1 per marshmallow to place on Toasty. Inserra Supermarkets, Inc. has donated 11,000 marshmallows. A group of students from both Bergen County Academies and Bergen Community College worked collaboratively to design and construct Toasty. Additional sponsors are Maggiano’s Little Italy and Hilton Hasbrouck Heights.
Donations will be split between the YCS Holley Childcare and Development Center located in Hackensack. The Center serves as home for 64 children ages 5-12 who have been removed from dangerous living situations and the Hackensack High School Band, which is fund-raising for a trip to perform in Washington, D.C.
Non-profit organizations will be setting up games for families to enjoy with proceeds benefiting those groups. For example, the Boys and Girls Club of Hackensack/Lodi will be setting up an obstacle course and game center to promote a healthy and fun lifestyle. There will be mall retailers, children’s crafts, and music by the School of Rock. HackensackUMC Fitness & Wellness will also have fitness activities for the entire family to participate in.
We are thrilled that The Shops at Riverside agreed to host an event for the community to welcome the Big Game and to give residents a way to have a great time and to support their local charities,” said Lauren Zisa, director of the Hackensack Regional Chamber of Commerce.
