Albany- Quick work by the chairman of the Downtown Merchant's Association helped keep Quail Unlimited's Celebrity Hunt in Albany for another three years.
WALB first told you Friday that, faced with steep fee increases at the Civic Center, Quail Unlimited reached an agreement with Darton College to hold the Celebrity Hunt events on their campus.
Downtown merchants leader Phil Cannon helped work out that deal. A college employee approached a friend of Cannon's with the idea. Cannon then approached Darton College President Dr. Peter Sireno. Through the leadership of other downtown merchants and the Chamber of Commerce an agreement was reached.
"Anything we can help with to better Albany we like helping with and I commend Phil and the guys for stepping up and it makes it more community oriented, " said Bo Henry, Downtown Merchants Association member.
Chamber officials helped set up Friday's tour of the campus for Quail Unlimited representatives who said the college is actually more suitable for their event than the Civic Center.
