Professional Women 'Getting Even' At Jae's

Staff Reports

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Berkshire Business and Professional Women will present its second annual "Getting Even Jam" as 7:30 p.m. Thursday, May 20, at Jae's Spice on North Street as part of downtown Pittsfield's first Third Thursday of the season.

The event celebrates Equal Pay Day, a day set aside on a Tuesday in April that aims to raise awareness of the gap between men's and women's wages. Latest Census statistics show that the gap between men's and women's earnings widened slightly between 2007 and 2008, from 77.8 to 77 percent. Based on the median earnings of full-time, year-round workers, women's earnings were $35,745 and men's earnings were $46,367.

The Getting Even Jam will feature the music of Code Blue. Code Blue is made up of school teacher Scott Ellis and chiropractor Kurt Schagen, who have been playing together for more than 12 years. In their current incarnation as Code Blue, they present a unique combination as an energetic musical duo which can transition from acoustic music, to a full band sound using midi technology.

Tickets are $15 and include music and hors d'oeuvres. All proceeds will go to local working women who wish to continue their education.

For more information, call 413-443-3577 or e-mail kim@tooleinsurance.com.
