15% Remains for Committee 150!

Five years ago this week, St. Joseph's Church was in real danger of collapse. However, thanks to the leadership and vision of the City of Albany and Historic Albany Foundation, its spires still reach skyward.

And thanks to all of you who have joined Committee 150 as volunteer fundraisers, as of Wednesday, December 13, we have raised more than $84,000 for the stabilization of the church.

If you haven't made a donation yet, it's not too late to join us. Committee 150 still has several parties coming up: A "Patsy Cline" Party at Liz's (12/16); Frances & Mike’s Open House (12/17); Kim & Jack’s Open House (12/17); and Elizabeth & Chuck’s Party (12/22). Several individuals and organizations have also joined Committee 150 this month by making a contribution of $1,000.

We urge you to consider making a year-end gift to Committee 150, for only by meeting our goal of $100,000 can we collect the entire $50,000 challenge grant offered by Mrs. Candace King Weir.

Be as generous as you can -- each $2 you give will be matched by $1!

You can use the convenient donation coupon in the Winter 2007 issue of Capital Neighbors (download the PDF here) -- or simply send your donation to:

Historic Albany Foundation
472 Madison Avenue
Albany, NY 12208.

Make your check payable to Historic Albany, but write "C150" in the memo line.
