Letter: Many contributed to successful BART fundraiser

Many contributed to BART fundraiser

To the editor,

On April 11, Berkshire Arts & Technology Charter Public School (BART) hosted our eighth annual "Get BART Smart" fundraiser and raised $19,021 (net) for the school's college preparatory programs! Over 150 people attended and re-lived their high school years through our team trivia game.

The night couldn't have happened without the support of over a hundred local organizations and businesses. Our High Honor Roll sponsors, Adams Community Bank, Adams Plumbing & Heating, Amanda Jones Photography, Cord Master Engineering, Scarafoni Associates, Shine Wire Products, Smith Watson & Company, LLP, Solomon's Furniture and VoIP Logic, LLC all played an important part in the evening's success.

We also thank our Honor Roll sponsors: DuFour, Inc., Greylock Federal Credit Union, Kate Drew Miller Photography, Vicki Donahue & Syd Smithers of Cain Hibbard and Myers, PC, Wade Davis and Jennifer Mascarenhas, Walt Disney World Co. and Whitman's Crystal Clean. The list above doesn't include 70+ additional local businesses that donated goods and services to the event for auction items and prizes or sponsored us.

BART has a geographically diverse student body, with over 330 students in grades 6-12 from throughout the county. Businesses from all corners of Berkshire County helped support our students through their generous sponsorships and donations.

Finally, many thanks to the trustees, faculty, staff, parent volunteers and others who contributed their time, money, and effort to make this event happen. Their dedication to the BART community, most importantly our students, is truly humbling.
