Bergmann's Temple Sinai gingerbr+edifice

AIA Rochester celebrated the end of its Centennial year with its annual Holiday Party, which was held at Ox and Stone on December 5. New this year was a gingerbread house auction to benefit House of Mercy.

Nearly 100 architects and industry professionals attended the party, which was generously sponsored by Tremco. Attendees were treated to a full cocktail and spirits menu and complimentary tapas and cookies while they networked with colleagues.

Eight teams constructed incredibly detailed “gingerbr+EDIFICES” based on local Rochester landmarks. Buildings made of edible goods included the Charlotte-Genesee Lighthouse, the Susan B. Anthony House, Andrews Terrace, Lamberton Conservatory, St. Joseph's Park, East Avenue Wegmans, and the Times Square Building.  In line with the Centennial theme regarding ‘shelter’ that recurred throughout the year, these edible models were then auctioned to benefit a local homeless shelter.  Bergmann's team, Eight Days of Baking, received a gift basket for their highest grossing Temple Sinai, which brought in $125.  The gingerbr+EDIFICE auction raised over $500, which will be presented in a check to House of Mercy.

AIA Rochester extends its thanks to those who attended our Holiday Party and especially to those who participated in the auction, which allows us to give back to our beloved community.

If you missed the auction, you can still help Rochester's homeless and impoverished by making a donation online to House of Mercy.
