Welcome to the September edition of our eNewsletter. Inside you will find BD&E happenings, ideas we would like to share and, of course, the Bella update.

Rubber Duckie, Pittsburgh's Awfully Fond of You!    

Spotlight on Pittsburgh.           

There are two things that BD&E can't seem to get enough of: creativity and the city of Pittsburgh. We were thrilled to learn that our three rivers will start to look a little more artsy thanks to the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust's Pittsburgh International Festival of Firsts. Starting Friday, September 27th, a 40-foot rubber duck, created by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman, began floating down the Allegheny River. Pittsburgh has the honor of being the first city in the United States to host the giant rubber duck exhibit, which has gained global recognition while visiting nine other countries since its creation in 2007. The exhibit kicked off with a party on the Roberto Clemente Bridge, a fitting way to celebrate another first for the City of Champions!

@ BD&E

Max Flick---- Keeping the Tradition Alive.

Max Flick, son of president and CEO Jeff Flick, has quickly made an impact on the Point Park University men's soccer team as an attacking center midfielder. Max joined 10 other new recruits this fall and continues to keep the Flick family soccer tradition alive. The Pioneers are currently 3-4-1 overall in the NAIA Division, and Max has had two goals and three assists so far this season. He was also named "Player of the Game" after Point Park's 3-1 victory over WVU Tech. With seven home games remaining, there's still time to catch the Pioneers in action at Highmark Stadium

 Catching Up with Bella
Two Bellas are Way Better than One!
Bella, a certified therapy dog, offered lots of her own brand of therapy as she joined Annabella Gizzi, granddaughter of BD&E's office administrator Erin Kartman, in the 21st annual Walk to Defeat ALS. The two were part of team Angie's Angels and walked in memory of friend and family member Angie Kazmeraski. The event, held at Point State Park, raised more than $320,000 to conquer ALS. Seven-year-old Annabella was thrilled to take Bella along, exclaiming, "At last, I have my very own dog for one day!"
Thanks for your time. We will catch up again next month. In the meantime, enjoy the crisp autumn air and cheer on our Pittsburgh Pirates ---- making the playoffs for the first time in more than 20 years!
