PRCC FOUNDATION HOLDS INAUGURAL EINSTEIN SPEAKER SERIES BREAKFAST

 Princeton, NJ – On March 21st, The Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce (PRCC) Foundation held it’s Inaugural Einstein Speaker Series Breakfast at the Nassau Inn and donated proceeds to Trenton Public Schools “STEM Program.” The PRCC Foundation continues to impact community partners. In 2013, the Foundation, along with the Chamber, created a $500,000 fund through the Princeton Area Community Foundation (PACF) to support non-profits. 

The event was co-chaired by Hillary Spivak and Deborah Frazier. The morning’s speaker was Rob Cross, co- founder of Pro Services Corporation (PSC) located in Trenton's historical Roebling steel district. PSC is a leader in software security testing, software performance testing and software quality assurance. Cross discussed computer hacking, securing your information and safeguarding client data.

 “Thank you to our speaker who engaged the audience with many useful tips and extremely important security information. Also, a tremendous thanks to our sponsors the Nassau Inn and Wells Fargo, as well as the Princeton Business Community who attended the breakfast and helped us raise funds for a very important educational program,” said Melissa Tenzer, PRCC Foundation Board President and Executive Director at Dress for Success Mercer County. “The focus of our breakfast was science driven and providing support for Trenton Public Schools STEM program was the perfect match.”

“We are excited to support the Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce Foundation as they continue to expand their influence across Mercer County,” said Peter Crowley President and CEO of the Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce.  “Supporting the Trenton Public Schools STEM program is just one of the many ways that the Chamber Foundation is making a difference in the lives of individuals in our region.”

The PRCC Foundation will continue to impact the community with its initial $500,000 seed money for years to come.

The mission of the Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce Foundation is to effectively focus the skills and resources of the greater Princeton business community on the critical civic, educational, scientific, cultural and economic development interests of the region it serves.
