A Lot To Celebrate At The Volunteers In Medicine Chef’s Dinner
Amy Krzanik reports from Lenox. This year’s popular Volunteers in Medicine (VIM) Berkshires benefit Chef’s Dinner was again held at the gorgeous Wheatleigh estate, on Monday evening, May 23. Supporters enjoyed champagne and appetizers in the lobby and on the terrace, followed by dinner with a view in the glass-walled dining room. The meal was prepared by the Wheatleigh chefs and accompanied by wine from Ed Domaney’s private cellar. VIM has supported free healthcare services to uninsured and underinsured individuals from throughout Berkshire County for over a decade. Its clinic, on Main Street in Great Barrington (across from Guido’s Fresh Marketplace), has recently undergone a renovation and expansion with help from Allegrone Construction. The public is invited to join VIM for a reception in the revamped space on Thursday, June 16. Above, Bernie and Elaine Roberts with VIM Berkshires board president Arthur Peisner.
