Summer Speaker: Chef Cara Geschke
On August 20, we head into the kitchen with Pittsburgh Le Cordon Bleu Institute of Culinary Arts graduate Cara Geschke. A passion that led to culinary school, Cara, who is a stay at home mom and active in her local community, will bring you into her home kitchen to show you how to make some regional classics from over the years you may remember from your mother’s or grandmother’s kitchen. Be sure to join Cara on Thursday, August 20th at 7pm.
Summer Speaker: Brian Cooper
The July 16 program will be a great follow up to our recent Fireside Chat—“History of Golf in Western PA” series, as Dave will interview McKeesport native and PGA Champions Tour player Brian Cooper. Cooper, a Duquesne University graduate, has been in professional golf for nearly 30 years and has played in two U.S. Senior Opens and one Senior British Open championships in recent years. Be sure to tee it up with Brian and Dave for this interview and Q&A event on Thursday, July 16 at 7pm.
