The Nephrock! Allstars will perform at the 'We Are All Immigrants' dance party to benefit VIM Berkshires at Race Brook Lodge in Sheffield on Saturday, April 15.

Sheffield — Volunteers in Medicine Berkshires, the free healthcare facility that serves the Berkshire region’s underserved population, will be celebrated at the “We Are All Immigrants” dance party presented by Casey Meade Rothstein-Fitzpatrick and Race Brook Lodge in the lodge’s barn from 8 to 11 p.m. on Saturday April 15. The Boston-based Nephrok! Allstars will provide music to dance to. At 5 p.m., VIM Berkshires’ nutrition counselor Nancy Fernandez Mills will offer a yoga class.

VIM Berkshires relies on a volunteer healthcare staff to deliver free services to more than 2,200 uninsured and underinsured patients ages 19 to 64. Besides primary care, VIM offers patients access to medical, dental, optometric and mental health services as well as nutrition, acupuncture and therapeutic body work. When necessary, VIM patients also are referred to a network of local health care agencies and social service specialists. Privately funded, VIM has more than 130 clinical and non-clinical volunteers. The clinic receives no state or federal funding, and raises more than $800,000 annually from individuals, businesses, and foundations.

The cost of a ticket is a $20 donation to VIM. For tickets and more information, see the Berkshire Edge calendar or contact Jeff Bliss at VIM at (413) 528-4014.
