Tapestry Health Jazz Brunch
Amy Krzanik reports from New Marlborough.
The spacious, art-filled home of Joyce Bernstein and Larry Rosenthal made a lovely setting for Tapestry Health’s Jazz Brunch on Sunday, June 30. Both a fundraiser and a celebration of Tapestry’s 40th anniversary, the musical meal was a chance for women’s health advocates, from both near and far, to nibble on Bernstein’s delicious homemade buffet, listen to live jazz, discuss recent Supreme Court decisions, and honor an important and necessary organization.Tapestry Health provides affordable clinical care and outreach programs (including birth control and STD testing) to low-income clients throughout Berkshire County. Dana Thomas, JD, Senior Policy Director at the Washington, D.C.-based Family Planning and Reproductive Health Association, spoke to the crowd about the important role clinics like Tapestry play in providing services to thousands of people who fall through the cracks of our current healthcare system. Senator Ben Downing congratulated the group on a landmark 40 years, presenting an official citation from the Massachusetts State Senate.
