Northern Berkshire Healthcare presents Circus Smirkus
Wednesday, May 26, 2010

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. - Northern Berkshire Healthcare (NBH) is pleased to present Circus Smirkus, the 2010 Big Top Tour on Sunday, July 11, and Monday, July 12, hosted at Mount Greylock Regional High School in Williamstown. Greylock Federal Credit Union is the inaugural Platinum sponsor of this fundraising event.
“Greylock Federal Credit Union is a shining example of just how generous northern Berkshire businesses are, and how concerned they are about quality health care in our community,” said Bruce Grinnell, chairman of the NBH Board of Trustees.
Proceeds from the Circus Smirkus event will benefit NBH’s community health programs, particularly REACH for Community Health’s Wellness Screening and Growing Healthy Gardens programs.
The Big Top Tour will perform four shows during its Williamstown stop: Sunday, July 11, at 1 p.m. and 6 p.m., and Monday, July 12, at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. The afternoon performance on Monday, July 12, will be a “Magic Matinee” – 250 tickets will be given away at no cost to local organizations that work with children, elders, and other individuals who might otherwise be unable to attend the event.
Ticket prices are $18 for adults, $15 for children (ages 2-12); $14 for seniors (age 62+), and $13 for groups (15 or more individuals of any age). Children under age 2 are free. Tickets can be purchased via http://www.smirkus.org/, 1-877-SMIRKUS, or (413) 664-5073. Please also check local stores for Circus Smirkus posters with the “Tickets Sold Here” tag.
Circus Smirkus is a non-profit, award-winning international youth circus that promotes the skills, culture, and traditions of the traveling circus. The circus will perform 69 shows this summer, from the mountains of Vermont to the shores of Maine, with stops along the way in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and upstate New York. Thirty stars, ages 11 to 18, bring youthful exuberance and polished skills from all parts of the country and the world. The theme-based show is a fun-filled celebration of the great outdoors, entitled Wilderness Wonders: Outdoor Adventures Under the Big Top.
For information on sponsorship, to reserve a block of “Magic Matinee” tickets, or to host a pair of Circus Troupers (youth performers) in your home on the nights of July 10, 11, & 12, please call the NBH Development Office at (413) 664-5073,
