The Albany Chef’s Food and Wine Festival didn’t happen this year because of the pandemic.

Instead, the organization held a Grand Gala Reception & 5-course dinner to raise money for the not-for-profit arts community in Albany.

Thursday evening, Marcus Pryor, Albany Chefs Food and Wine Festival Board of Directors announced more than $55,000 was raised.

In total, the charity organization has raised more than $1.2 million for the city’s arts organizations.

The full 3-day festival will return to the Capital Region in January.
