Seven individuals and organizations were feted on Thursday night as the this year's Berkshire Trendsetters.
The awards were presented at the sixth annual Celebrate the Berkshires event at Tanglewood before a crowd of more than 300 with state Sen. Benjamin B. Downing, D-Pittsfield, as master of ceremonies. The awards are a program of 1Berkshire.
After living together for three years, the Berkshire Visitors Bureau and the Berkshire Chamber of Commerce announced their engagement on Wednesday.
The two organizations will become one as of July 1 as part of the 1Berkshire Strategic Alliance, joining Berkshire Creative and the Berkshire Economic Development Corporation and cementing a relationship the organizations have been growing for a decade.
