Fundraiser at the Inn for outstanding program that puts youth-at-risk alongside professional chefs!

RSYP's Berkshire Culinary Arts Program, under the direction of Red Lion Executive Chef Brian J. Alberg and featured on Good Morning America, allows area youth to work with chefs for professional culinary training.
