Wednesday Nights through the winter, Dine at Chez Nous to Support Organizations Working to Improve Lives in the Berkshires

Each evening will be devoted to a different non-profit organization with 15% of the night’s net profit given directly to support their work in our community

 

CHP is the health care home to more than 32,000 Berkshire region residents. Our Family Services program continues to impact the lives of hundreds of young families throughout Southern Berkshire County.

Please join us for our Community Nights this winter. Each week we will partner with a local nonprofit to highlight their cause. While we have always partnered with local organizations with different donations, including cooking classes, Chef for a Day, or gift certificates for dinner, recently we have been thinking about how to integrate our work more directly with the community that has supported us for almost 14 years. We are looking forward to giving back by doing what we do best, feeding people!

Here is what you can do to help: bring your friends and family and enjoy an evening out while supporting a good cause. It’s a great combination. In addition, everyone who attends to support Community Night will have their names entered into a raffle for a chance to win a dinner for 2 at one of our popular wine dinners!

Please mark the following nights on your calendar if you would like to enjoy a delicious meal at Chez Nous and take advantage of this easy opportunity to contribute to some of the community organizations doing important work to strengthen the Berkshires and beyond:

Wednesday Nights through the winter, Dine at Chez Nous to Support Organizations Working to Improve Lives in the Berkshires

Through a rich array of arts workshops—in painting, dance, theater, singing, drumming, juggling, yoga, creative writing, and more— CATA artists tap into their potential, explore new talents, and share their unique points of view. Public events including our annual performance and year-round art exhibits bring our whole community into the act—shining a light on the ability within disability.

CATA’s vision of inclusion takes work. Our arts workshops take place weekly so that our artists have the chance to build on their talents, class after class. We forge strong partnerships with other organizations — social service agencies, day-habilitation programs, residences, and schools— so we can reach as many people with disabilities as possible. We hire professional faculty–all working artists themselves–to lead our programs. Because that’s what our CATA artists deserve. And, we work closely with prominent cultural organizations to showcase the talents of our CATA artists for our whole community, in art exhibits, performances, and poetry readings.

CATA is about creating the community we all believe in: one that recognizes the value of ALL of its members.

n 1983 FCI began to focus on science and arts education for children, establishing a summer program with environmental themes, led by area specialists in these fields. FCI was encouraged to begin after school programs on-site and in area schools which began in 1988. This led to a partnership with the Southern Berkshire Regional School District that was formalized in 1990 and continues to the present. The partnership began with a few classrooms participating in interdisciplinary science and math residencies, often involving environmental themes and the arts. By 2000 FCI’s work in this district had expanded to reach 30 teachers, 600 students.

Over subsequent decades FCI has become a major player in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) education with partnerships in four Berkshire County school districts. Flying Cloud Institute now reaches over 3500 students each year through our in-school programs (SMArt Schools), summer programs (SMArt Summer Programs), after school and summer programs for girls (Young Women in Science Programs), and the Berkshire STEM Educators Conference (formerly BEEN Conference) and the Youth STEM Summit (formerly Youth Environmental Summit).
