The Gala, a hybrid event, is in-person and virtual on Zoom. Here’s a quick rundown of the evening:

  • September 21, 4-6pm, go to Balderdash Cellars in Richmond, to pick up your Gala Boxed Dinner.
  • While you wait, have a glass of wine (or get a bottle to go) and do a little social distance networking - don’t forget to wear a mask.
  • Then, head home, dress up (cause why not!) and tune in online at 7pm. Prize baskets filled with wonderful Berkshire items are hoped to be raffled or auctioned.

The event will be broadcast on several platforms as we celebrate Andrea and enjoy each other’s company. It’s sure to be an evening of fun and excitement!
