Volunteers In Medicine Celebrates Its 10th Anniversary In Style

Amy Krzanik reports from Lenox. This year’s Volunteers In Medicine chef’s dinner on Monday, June 2 served not only as a fund-raising event, but a celebration of the group’s impressive 10th anniversary. The stunning Wheatleigh Hotel provided a beautiful backdrop as guests were treated to canapes and wines selected especially for the occasion by Domaney’s Liquors. After cocktails, attendees enjoyed a four-course meal in the Wheatleigh dining room, prepared under the direction of Chef Jeffrey Thompson. Proceeds from the evening go toward supporting VIM’s mission of providing healthcare for uninsured and underinsured Berkshire County residents.
