IN MEMORY OF RONNIE BERLACK -- Students and staff at Burke Mountain Academy in East Burke raised over $4,600 for Hand to Hand to assist local families with their heating bills. The gift was made in memory of BMA alumnus and US Ski Team member Ronnie Berlack who died in an avalanche in Austria in January. Having worked with Hand to Hand over past few years, the Berlack Family and the school wanted to give back to the local community with this gift during a harsh, cold winter. The gift benefited 31 families.
