FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

Oradell, NJ – As part of its ongoing program to give back to the community, The Bergen County Players recently presented a $2,000 donation to the Congenital Heart Defect Coalition. Prior to a performance of BCP season opener “Guys and Dolls,” (Left to Right) BCP President Margie Druss Fodor and BCP Charity Chair Sheldon Stone presented the check to Mickey Wilder, CHD coalition president and Kevin Novreske, CHD board member. The sole purpose of this nonprofit organization is to help those affected by congenital heart defects. 

“We’ve been in Bergen County for 83 years and we couldn’t do it without the support from our community,” said BCP President Margie Druss Fodor, of Westwood. “This is our way of saying thank you.”  Since the theater’s 1995-96 season, the BCP membership has chosen a specific charity each year to which the organization donates a portion of its net proceeds. The charities selected all benefit Bergen County. Next year’s recipient is Visiting Homemaker Home Health Aide Service Bergen County. 

Past charities are: Multiple Sclerosis, Bergen County Community Action Program, ARC of Bergen County, Shelter Our Sisters, Emmanuel Cancer Foundation, Center for Help, Center for Food Action, Spectrum for Living Development Research Foundation for Children, We Must Care, Youth Consultation Service, Appropriate Living for the Autistic, AIDS Research Foundation for Children, Juvenile Diabetes Foundation, Alzheimer Association of Greater NJ Chapter, Gilda’s Club, Adler Aphasia Center, and Family Promise of Bergen County, the Audrey Hepburn Children’s House, and the Ramapo Bergen Animal Refuge. 

The Bergen County Players also donates tickets to numerous educational and other organizations throughout the year for their various fundraisers and events. BCP is located at 298 Kinderkamack Road, Oradell, NJ. You can visit the theater online at www.bcplayers.org

BCP is bringing the best of Broadway to the neighborhood this season by staging the works of critically acclaimed playwrights. With a ticket price that is about the same as for a movie, popcorn, and a soda, BCP continues to be committed to the belief that everyone should have the opportunity to experience the artistry and excitement of live theater. 

Bergen County Players has grown tremendously from its roots as a small community theater when it was founded in 1932; today, nearly 300 volunteer members, working on and off stage, make possible the nine productions presented each season.
