Intro Image - An Evening Out At Home

An Evening Out At Home

An Evening Out At Home is Rochester Area Community Foundation’s premier annual event. It was created in 1981 as a way to bring together members of the greater Rochester community for an elegant evening and, at the same time, raise awareness and support for the Foundation and its mission.

How It Works

Every year, guests dine in small groups at the homes of Foundation supporters, starting at 6 p.m., and then gather at a special venue to mingle with party-goers from the other dinner parties. The dessert reception features locally made desserts and drinks and includes dancing. Past reception sites have included Rundel Memorial Library, Three Heads Brewing, the renovated Sibley Building, ARTISANworks’ French Quarter, George Eastman Museum, Memorial Art Gallery, Village Gate, City Hall, and many other special locations. Past events have drawn 300 to 400 people.

Our Event Will Not Take Place in Spring 2022

The coronavirus pandemic continues to pose challenges to planning large indoor events like An Evening Out At Home. We look forward to getting back together in future years. If you are not already on our guest list, please sign up to receive invitations.
