Pittsfield: Hancock Shaker Village to host annual fundraising gala
Gov. Deval L. Patrick and First Lady Diane B. Patrick are honorary co-chairs for Hancock Shaker Village’s annual gala fundraising benefit dinner, to be held from 5 to 9 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 9.
Festivities include locavore farm-fresh food prepared by Chef Michael Roller and songs from the American songbook performed live by the Gregory Caputo Big Band. A silent and live auction, as well as demonstrations of Shaker crafts by leading artisans, will round out the evening.
The gala will benefit the Village, which is engaged in a multi-pronged campaign to restore its 20 historic buildings, many of which are in need of urgent care.
The silent auction features one-of-a-kind items and packages for dining, travel, and luxury goods.
The event is handicapped accessible. Tickets start at $200 per person.
