BATTLE OF THE BARTENDERS
Williamstown, 5 - 11 p.m.
Berkshire Realtors from across Berkshire County will challenge their bartending skills in three fun county-wide events on May 28th, 2015 to raise money for three Berkshire County organizations. The Real Estate Charitable Task Force, also known as REACT, will sponsor their second annual Battle of the Bartenders in three locations on May 28th. Berkshire Realtors will be tending bar at the Olde Heritage Tavern, 12 Housatonic Street, Lenox, MA, from 5 to 9 pm to raise funds to support The Eleanor Sonsini Animal Shelter in their campaign to build outdoor animal coverage. More Realtors will be at Hops & Vines, 16 Water Street, Williamstown, MA, from 6 to 9 pm to raise money for the Louison House FLSC, a North Berkshire organization that provides transition and permanent housing solutions for the homeless. A final group of Realtors will be at The Brick House Pub, 425 Park Street, Housatonic, MA, from 8 to 11 pm to raise funds for the Breaking Bread Kitchen who provides community meals for those in need in Southern Berkshire County. 100% of tips collected on May 28th will go directly to the cause at the specified location. Realtors will be competing in teams to see who can bring in the most tips for their cause. The events are open to the public; and donations are also being collected online if you cannot attend the event and would like to donate. Please find us on Facebook at At Home in the Berkshires for how to donate. In May of 2014, REACT hosted their first ever Battle of the Bartenders at the Olde Heritage Tavern and raised $2500 for the American Cancer Society. Following this success, REACT decided to expand the event to three venues across the county so more people could participate. REACT is a committee of the Berkshire County Board of REALTORS®. Berkshire REALTORS® work together with the community to identify, support and sustain charitable organizations that improve the quality of life in Berkshire County. The Berkshire County Board of Realtors® is a strong and thriving trade association of professional real estate agents in the region.

The building sat vacant until 1871 when it was purchased by Adeline Schermerhorn to be used as a library. The Lenox Library Association moved in with its collection of 3,000 books in 1874, and has been in residence ever since. Event tickets and copies of the commemorative book may be purchased at the door or online by visiting lenoxlib.org or by emailing Jennifer Knopf at celebration@lenoxlib.org or 413-637-2630 ext. 121.
