North Adams: UNITY to host pizza dinner fundraiser


The Northern Berkshire Community Coalition’s Youth Leadership Program (UNITY) is hosting a pizza dinner from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday, May 29, at American Legion Post 125.

The event is a fundraiser for the Be Like Brit Foundation, a non-profit organization that houses 35 orphaned children as well as works toward raising the next generation of leaders in Haiti.

The cost is $7 for adults and $5 for students and seniors. The meal will include pizza and salad, with vegetarian and gluten-free options available. The dinner will feature performances by local teenagers.

In addition to the efforts to raise money for Be Like Brit at the dinner, UNITY participants are accepting supplies for the Foundation’s orphanage, including hygiene products and school supplies.
