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
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:
