The school fundraiser featured chocolate treats.
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Fourteen students from Mount Greylock Regional School entertained a crowd of family and friends Sunday at the school's 10th annual Food of Love celebration at the Williams Inn.
 
The event featured an enticing variety of chocolate treats and lively renditions of scenes from the Bard's tragedies and comedies.
 
The fundraiser helps fund the school's participation in the annual Fall Festival of Shakespeare at Shakespeare & Company in Lenox.
 
Last fall, Mount Greylock's contingent staged "King Lear" with the assistance of Shakespeare & Company veteran Josh McCabe.
 
Sunday's event was organized by the parent volunteers of Mount Greylock's Friends of the Arts. The lead volunteer was Deb Brothers.
 
About 110 people attended Food of Love, which netted about $700.

"All in all, it was a great event," volunteer Maribeth Pomerantz said. "We view the event as a community awareness-raising about the arts at Mount Greylock as much as a fund-raiser."
