Volunteers in Medicine Goes Wild for the West
When VIM Berkshires held its annual fundraiser on Saturday, August 21, at the Wyantenuck Country Club in Great Barrington, every doctor in the house (and they were legion) could have passed for Doc Holiday. To do justice to the Old West saloon decor, attendees reached deep into their closets to bring forth enough bandanas, plaid flannel shirts, and fringed suede jackets to outfit the cast of an old Hollywood Western. As its name suggests, VIM Berkshires is a free clinic in Great Barrington that is staffed by volunteers and provides medical, dental, mental health, and optometry care to eligible patients.
