A lot of us like wine, and most of us love chocolate, so why not enjoy two of your favorites for a great cause!

NAMI (National Association of Mental Illness) Berkshire County provides support and advocacy to family members and caregivers of people living with mental illnesses throughout Berkshire County and their upcoming Chocolate & Wine Extravaganza provides much needed funds to keep their programming alive.

This Friday Nov. 8, from 6 - 8 p.m. at the Stationary Factory in Dalton, the Chocolate & Wine Extravaganza will feature spirits and treats from DeMarsico's Wine Cellar, Gimme Some Sugar, Linda's Pastries, Mielke Confections, Silver Bear Distillery, Sarah's Cheesecake & Cafe and Jennifer's Cookies & Cupcakes & Cakes.
In addition to the sampling, there will be raffles and a silent auction, attendees will receive a commemorative wine glass, and enjoy live music from Chantell & Charell McFarland.

Tickets are $35 in advance and $50 at the door and includes the sampling.

Proceeds from the event will support the programs of NAMI Berkshire County, which provides information, referrals, classes, workshops, support groups and advocacy to family members and caregivers of people living with mental illnesses throughout Berkshire County.
