A great big shout out to all of the bartending teams, their supporters; raffle prize donors; members of the REACT Committee and co-chairs: Paula McLean and Mary Jo Piretti Miller for a very successful 2017 Battle of the Bartenders. This year’s event was again held at the Olde Heritage Tavern in Lenox where crowds gathered to root on their favorite team, and stayed to support the others. It was a fun night full of laughter and good times, all while raising funds for an excellent cause.
The winning bartending team of Janice Braim, Jackie McNinch, Mike Sorrentino and Tessie Sorrentino raised just over $700 during their hour behind the bar, and all teams total raised over $2,000. Together, with money raised from our raffle prizes, we were able to donate $3,300 to the Central Berkshire Habitat for Humanity. Funds have been earmarked for their Building for Tomorrow fund, which is used toward financial education – leading to financial health, of their clients and members of the public.
Thank you to all who participated and attended this awesome event. We’re looking forward to the next one!
