Paskack Junior Women's Club, in conjunction with the Park Ridge Elks, host an annual Breakfast with Santa. Guests enjoy a delicious hot breakfast, dancing, crafts, photos with Santa and more! Proceeds are donated to local charities.


Santa Visits
The Paskack Juniors host Santa visits, giving local families the opportunity to pay a small fee to “book” a Santa Claus to visit their homes and add special memories to the holiday season. Proceeds are donated to charity.

Letters to Santa
The Paskack Juniors also sponsor “Letters to Santa,” whereby kids  write letters to Santa Claus and receive personalized responses from St. Nick himself.  Santa often commends them on their good behavior the past year and tells them how excited he is to deliver presents to them on Christmas!


Bumper Bowling Charity Event

Every President's Day the Paskack Juniors hosts a bumper bowling fundraiser for families in the local community. Proceeds benefit local charities.


Tag Sale to Benefit Charity

Each spring the Paskack Juniors host a tag sale at which we sell hundreds of clothing items, books, sporting equipment, household goods and toys. Proceeds benefit local charities.


Lady Bug Release
Families from the local community enjoy a fun afternoon in nature. During the event children are given several live lady bugs to release out into the wild. The children learn about the lady bug's role in the ecosystem and have fun making crafts and snacking on lady bug themed foods.


Clothing and Shoe Drives

The Paskack Juniors host clothing and shoe drives to benefit local shelters in the area.


Self Defense Class for Women
GFWC Paskack Junior Women’s Club hosted a women’s self defense class that was open to all women in the area, ages 13 and up on Sunday, January 27. Gorilla Brazilian Jujitsu Academy of Mahwah owner/instructor Mike Wilson and instructor Katelyn Petersen lead the class. Attendees learned vital self defense techniques and ways to protect themselves against attackers. This was the second self defense class hosted by the Juniors. We plan to host another class in the springtime. Stay tuned!
