Pittsfield: Auction to help market Berkshires

The Berkshire Visitors Bureau, in collaboration with the 1Berkshire Strategic Alliance Foundation, has launched its second annual Berkshires Dream Auction, an online auction to raise funds for the Berkshire Marketing Fund.

The Berkshire Visitors Bureau's board of directors created the Berkshire Marketing Fund in 2011 in order to reduce the region's reliance on state funds to supplement cooperative marketing dollars raised through its members.

The online auction began on May 18, and runs until June 5. All donations are tax deductible through the 1Berkshire Strategic Alliance Foundation, a fund of the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation.
