NORTH ADAMS, Mass. – With some help from the online community, the North Adams SteepleCats will have an opportunity to earn a $5,000 donation from the Berkshire Bank Foundation’s $25,000 Giveaway to non-profit organizations in the area, the organization announced Tuesday.
An exciting promotion from one of Northern Berkshire County’s banks will award $25,000 to area non-profit organizations, and the North Adams SteepleCats are asking for help from the community to assure themselves a portion of that donation. Through this promotion, the Foundation will award $25,000.00 to nonprofit organizations in the bank’s four regions— Berkshire County and the Pioneer Valley in Massachusetts, southern Vermont and eastern/central New York.
Members of the community will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite 501©3 tax exempt nonprofit organization at www.facebook.com/BerkshireBank
. Those organizations receiving the most votes in each of the bank’s four regions will receive a grant of $5,000.00.
The Foundation will also award a grant of $1,000.00 in each of the bank’s four regions, plus the Rome, NY area in Central New York. These $1,000.00 grants will be awarded based on a random drawing from all eligible nonprofit organizations that receive votes in the Giveaway.
In order to vote, participants must visit www.facebook.com/BerkshireBank

and then click on the app titled “Summer of Excitement”.
Participants can vote online, one vote per person. Voting will take place June 4, 2012 through August 31, 2012 with winners announced in September 2012.
The SteepleCats will open the season in two days when they travel to Sanford, Maine, to take on the Mainers for a 6:30 p.m. interdivision matchup on Thursday, June 7.
