WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — A number of local artists raised nearly $800 for the Berkshire Community Action Council's Elf Program. 
The benefit art show and reception was held recently at Gramercy Bistro on Water Street. Featured artists included Marilyn Cavallari, Kathryn Benson, Liz Cunningham, Stephen Dankner, Ellen Joffe Halpern, Jane Hudson, Kaye Shaddock and Mary Weissbrodt.
"I wanted to raise at least a thousand and we came close," Cavallari said, who presented a check for $776 to Aleta Moncecchi, the program's deputy director for Northern Berkshire.
The Elf Program has been providing warm winter clothes for area children in need for many years. Children age 12 and younger get a new coat, hat, mittens, scarves a winter outfit or pajamas. The program served more than 2,000 children in the Berkshire last year.
