Sybaris is collaborating with the Albany Downtown Association and area restaurants (including our friends at First Burger) to raise money to help the Novaks rebuild and their staff to cover living costs while out of work. We’ll be announcing more details later but, for now, consider this your “Save the Date” notice. Buy tickets to the event or donate online at the Albany Downtown Association webpage and page. https://albany-downtown-association.weebly.com/s/shop
