The PSPCA’s Gillian Kocher joins Kristen in studio, along with Nancy Barton, owner of Philadelphia Brewing Company. The two organizations have teamed up to plan the First Annual ‘Dine Out for Pet’s Sake’ all-day fundraising event to benefit the PSPCA’s lifesaving mission. On Wednesday, September 18th, 2019, more than 20 restaurants throughout the city will step up to help Pennsylvania’s most vulnerable animals! The concept is simple: Participating establishments will be donate 5%-10% of their sales (or more!) to the Pennsylvania SPCA. DINE OUT on Wednesday, September 18th (all day!) at participating restaurants, and a portion of every bill will help animals in Philadelphia and throughout the state! Check out PSPCA.org/dineout for more info or the Facebook event.

Also, Gillian brought a very cute pup to the studio with her. Her name is Diana and she’s available for adoption at the PSPCA’s Erie Avenue location. She is a beautiful pittie (with the coloring of a Bernese Mountain Dog!) and super sweet and just wants to be loved. Will you take her home today? E-mail [email protected] for more information and photos of this wonderful gal.

Then, Kristen is joined by David Levy, Vice President of Artistic Operations for Opera Philadelphia to talk more about the third annual opera festival, O19!
