Be$t Party Yet!!!

Carol Bullard, Worth Gretter & Marci David hosted a party in Albany's historic Mansion Neighborhood on Saturday. With lovely weather for a garden party, excellent food and wonderful friends, this party brought in over $2,500 for Committee 150! (With the matching grant from Candace King Weir, $3,750 will go towards the stabilization of St. Joseph's Church!)

Please remember, the Committee 150's goal for the take from each party to average $1,000 ... and while the first few parties have raised more, it's OK to raise less!

More than anything, we want to make sure that lots of people get together this summer to celebrate the 150th annniversary of St. Joseph's Church, Albany's spectacular historic architecture, and the neighborhoods that make this city such a wonderful place to live. So ... no pressure!

If you would like to host a party but would like some help with ideas, here are some events that are in the works for the next month or so that might inspire you ...
  • A Red White & Blue 4th of July
  • Old-Fashioned New England Clambake
  • Gershwin in the Garden
  • A Picture-Perfect Party
  • Splashdown for St. Joe's! (a chartered ride on the Albany Aqua Duck)
