This will mark the first time the event has taken place in Albany. In its previous five installments, it has taken place in Troy. Founded by former Troy Record reporter Danielle Sanzone in 2012 and now managed by Ty Versocki from Relentless Awareness, the egg hunt raised thousands of dollars for organizations, including the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in its inaugural year.

Hundreds of Capital Region businesses have donated prizes and giveaways, ranging from gift certificates to weekend getaways.

This year, proceeds from the egg hunt will support Albany Center Gallery, now celebrating its fortieth year as one of the Capital Region’s premiere art galleries, and In Our Own Voices, an Albany-based advocacy and support organization focused on issues and concerns facing LGBT people of color.
