In today’s episode:
This weekend, August 24th, marks the 8th annual James Bond Soiree in Pittsburgh benefitting the National Kidney Foundation. I talk briefly with Kent Schmor, the founder and executive director of this incredible event. Kent, a native of Canada, came to Pittsburgh a few years back as a professor with the University of Pittsburgh, volunteered with the National Kidney Foundation, and decided to give back. What a great event with great people. Hear why even though he left to move back home to Canada (for an employment opportunity) he decided to continue to hold the event here in Pittsburgh, and has expanded it to other cities nationally. It’s a recurring theme on our podcasts. Thanks, Kent, for helping to make Pittsburgh Beautiful! There are a few tickets remaining… you can get them right here!
Chris Klein roots are from Pittsburgh, and his grandmother was born in Castle Shannon in the early 1900’s. Pittsburgh in the early 20th Century, while booming and bustling, was a dirty place. Not so today! Pittsburgh moved him. He loves to capture beauty in unique ways and was inspired to create Pittsburgh Beautiful as a way to share that with everyone.
