United Cerebral Palsy of Berkshire County Celebrates Life Without Limits

Amy Krzanik reports from Pittsfield. Guests sipped on complimentary champagne and snacked from the impressive delectables that Mazzeo’s Catering had expertly laid out in the “Garage” of The Colonial Theatre on Saturday evening, March 26. After holding annual fundraising telethons since its inception in 1961, United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) Association of Berkshire County had organized something new and exciting for the community. The organization, which offers support and advocacy for individuals with any type of physical or mental disability (not only cerebral palsy) tapped the band Kansas to perform a concert for its inaugural “Life Without Limits” benefit. Special guests enjoyed a cocktail party before set time, where board president Maren Jacobs, UCP client and role model Brittany Dorwin, and executive director Sal Garozzo addressed the crowd. Proceeds from the concert go to UCP programs and services that support over 2,400 individuals in the community.

UCP’s 3rd vice president Howie Marshall and 2nd vice president Dan Proskin flank Kids 4 Harmony director Alicia Stevenson; Kristen Baker, UCP’s director of marketing and development, with marketing intern Noelle Dumont.

Lisa Stoddard and board member Mike Stoddard, who works at one of the evening’s major sponsors, Greylock Federal Credit Union; UCP executive director Sal Garozzo, Donna Roberts, Walter Kupis, Samantha Dorwin and board president Maren Jacobs.

Pam and Dan Dorwin flank their daughter, Massachusetts Miss Amazing Junior Miss 2016 winner Brittany Dorwin; former UCP president Dr. Charles Ross, former board member Jane Ross and Howie Marshall.

Ken and Rosanne Berry with Laurel Carsell and Patrick Carsell, DDS; Ron Wojcik, Diane Wojcik of major sponsor MountainOne, and Cindy Fuller.

Mazzeo’s provided a wonderful and plentiful spread, as always, for the evening’s guests.
