We acknowledge CATA Business Friends with their logo in our “billboard”—a colorful center-spread in our annual performance program that is distributed to over 800 Berkshire residents and visitors. A large banner of this billboard also appears in the lobby of Shakespeare & Company and the gala tent. Business Friends are also included in donor lists published regularly in our newsletters and on our website.
