The fund raiser, Dance for Justice, for the Berkshire Center for Justice, Inc. was a huge success. It was a fun time for all with delicious food from The Marketplace, dance music with Wanda Houston & Band, and a successful silent auction! The new venue at the Universalist Unitarian Church in Housatonic was filled to capacity. Thank you all for your help in making this event such a tremendous success for such an important and worthwhile mission in the heart of the Berkshires.
