The George Biddle Kelley Education Foundation


The Beta Pi Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., proudly presents:

Wednesday, June 15, 2011
6pm - 9pm
Albany Institute of History & Art
125 Washington Ave
Albany, NY

This marquee event raises funds to support and develop programs that assist in the development of strong families in at-risk communities within the Capital District. Through collaboration with our 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization, the George Biddle Kelley Education Foundation, we will provide the youth with a myriad of educational programs, mentoring, scholarships, and college bus tours.

Through events like SWIRL IV and the support of sponsors, Alpha Phi Alpha will continue to address the plight of the youth in at risk communities by providing them with information, resources, advocacy, programs, and services that are critical in the quest for advancement of our youth.

Albany Institute of History & Art (AIHA)
125 Washington Avenue, Albany, NY 12210

AIHA is located at the intersection of Washington Avenue and Dove Street in downtown Albany, one block west of the New York State Capitol.

From I-787, take the Empire State Plaza exit; bear right onto Swan Street. Follow Swan Street to Elk Street. Turn left into the museum's parking lot. Ample free parking is available in the evening hours during the week.

Founded in 1791, the AIHA, one of the oldest museums in the United States, is dedicate to collecting, preserving, interpreting and promoting interest in the history, art and culture of Albany and the Upper Hudson Valley.


The three-story, 2,250 sq. ft. atrium is the centerpiece of the facility, and offers an elegant, contemporary setting for receptions. Linking the museum's historic buildings, this spectacular glass enclosure is an architectural beacon on Washington Avenue and reflects the renaissance of downtown Albany.

Rice House

The Beaux-Arts style Rice House, restored to its elegant 19th-century splendor, is ideal for meetings, small receptions, or seated meals. On the National Register of Historic Places, the Rice House includes original decorative fireplaces and a private terrace overlooking the museum's green space, with views of the New York State Capitol.
