“Our continued partnership with Berkshire Humane Society has become a part of our store’s culture. They do such great work in our community and we’re happy to be able to team up with them once again for the Outback raffle,” said Chris Kramek, General Manager of Haddad Subaru.

“We are excited to continue this partnership with Haddad Subaru,” said John Perreault, Executive Director of Berkshire Humane Society. “Haddad is extremely supportive of their community, and they have been a great partner to our shelter. They sponsor a dog each week, giving that animal additional exposure. This raffle is a great opportunity for someone in the community to win a car that’s perfect for the Berkshires, and to support the animals of our community.”

Proceeds benefit BHS. For more information, call (413) 447-7878, ext. 131.
