David Hyde Pierce
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — David Hyde Pierce, Tony Award and Emmy Award winner, will meet and mingle at a midday reception to benefit the Alzheimer's Association Massachusetts/New Hampshire Chapter, on Sunday, July 1, at The Orchards hotel.

The afternoon event includes a performance at 2 of "The Importance of Being Earnest," featuring Tyne Daly, at the Williamstown Theatre Festival.

Pierce is best known for his 11-year role as Niles on the NBC television show "Frasier" and is directing the first main stage show of the season at Williamstown Theatre Festival. 

In addition to being a actor, director and musician, Pierce is also a passionate advocate for Alzheimer's families and a national spokesperson for the Alzheimer's Association. He lost his grandfather to Alzheimer's and his father struggled with dementia after a stroke.

The event will kick off with hors d'oeuvres and drinks in the flower-filled courtyard of The Orchards from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., during which guests will get a chance to meet and chat with the director. A director's talk will highlight the reception. Afterward, guests will attend the performance at the theater.

Hosting the event is the Berkshire Alzheimer's Partnership, a local alliance of health care and human service professionals and Alzheimer's family members under the guidance of the Alzheimer's Association.

Tickets for the event, "Acting on Hope," are $125 per person. Funds raised go toward expanding resources, education and training in Berkshire County and can be reserved by calling the Alzheimer's Association at 413-499-0691 or by emailing Marcia McKenzie.
