A Moveable Feast is an annual fundraising event for the benefit of Historic Albany Foundation, a non-profit membership organization incorporated in 1974 to promote the appreciation and preservation of Albany’s remarkable historic buildings and neighborhoods. The Foundation offers educational programs, provides technical assistance, leads advocacy efforts and operates the Architectural Parts Warehouse.
Historic Albany Foundation's "A Moveable Feast" event is our largest and most- anticipated fundraiser of the year. The event raises money and awareness for Albany's unique and beautiful historic architecture. It is attended by approximately 300-325 guests. The event begins with a cocktail reception, hors d'oeuvres, & silent auction held at a large-scale venue. Guests are randomly assigned to a host home somewhere in the city for a gourmet dinner with other unknown guests. They do not know this location until the night of the event, which adds to the excitement and anticipation! After dinner, all of the attendees return to the first original venue to enjoy coffee, dessert, and the close of the silent auction to support the architectural heritage of Albany. All of the proceeds from our event support the mission and goals of Historic Albany Foundation, to promote the preservation and appreciation of the built environment.
