This year’s chili cookoff will benefit the Elizabeth Freeman Center.  Elizabeth Freeman Center offers hope, help, and healing to all experiencing or affected by domestic and sexual violence through free, accessible, and confidential services in Berkshire County. They work to end the cycle of violence through community mobilization, advocacy, and education. Promoting social justice and working to end all forms of oppression are essential to their work.

We hope that you’ll attend the meeting and then join us for some great chili, raffles, DJ and fun!  A list of participating restaurants will be announced soon.  Keep an eye out, we’ve got some great participants!
