In its continuing effort to address the funding crisis created by cutbacks in federal funds, the Berkshire Immigrant Center will be launching a series of “restaurant evenings” at various immigrant-owned restaurants in the County. The evenings offer an opportunity to share great food and service while supporting the Berkshire Immigrants Center’s continuing efforts to fully provide services to the immigrant community. The series also supports the Governor’s recent Immigrant Entrepreneurship Monthproclamation that showcases the importance and contributions of immigrant-owned and operated businesses in the Commonwealth.
Spice Root to host first event Nov. 14
The first Restaurant Evening will be held Monday, November 14th from 5 – 9:30 PM at Spice Root at 23 Spring Street in Williamstown. Spice Root offers modern Indian cuisine. Owner Tarun Narula, a successful immigrant entrepreneur and naturalized U.S. citizen, will open the restaurant exclusively to supporters of the Immigrant Center and will donate 15% of the evening’s proceeds to the Center.

“We hope many people will join us for these wonderful events” noted Hilary Greene, director of the Berkshire Immigrant Center. “The food and company will be great, and most importantly, you will be supporting an agency that serves nearly 900 immigrants annually who bring significant benefits to the Berkshires”.
