Westwood Alum to be Honored at Education Foundation Gala
PNC Bank Regional President Linda Bowden will be presented the Cardinal Alumni Achievement Award.
The Westwood-Washington Township Education Foundation is holding their annual gala March 27 and honoring Westwood Regional alum Linda Bowden, the regional president of PNC Bank.
Bowden formerly taught in Wyckoff and has been named one of the "50 Best Women to Watch" by NJBiz and one of "25 Women to Watch" by American Banker Magazine.
The WWTEF has picked Bowden as the winner of this year's Cardinal Alumni Achievement Award, which is given to one noteworthy alum at the gala each year. Educators in the district will also be honored.
This year's gala will be a casino night with food, cocktails and gambling with "play money."
The past five WWTEF galas have raised more than $300,000 for Westwood Regional Schools, including about $50,000 last year for social studies programs. Check out photos from last year's gala here.
The casino night will take place at Seasons March 27 from 6 to 11 p.m. Tickets are $100, or $150 for a patron ticket with acknowledgment in an ad journal distributed at the event.
To order tickets, send a check to: WWTEF-B. Cirillo, 345 Kinderkamack
