BALTIMORE, Md. (April 23, 2019) – United Way of Central Maryland will host a “Concert & Conversation” with award-winning producer, composer, philanthropist and author Peter Buffett on May 7 at the Baltimore Museum of Art from 6 – 9 p.m. The event, which is free to the public, is a music and media presentation during which Peter will share stories about growing up in the Buffett family, his personal views on complex social issues and the important role of philanthropy.
The youngest of Warren Buffett’s sons, Peter Buffett is co-president of the NoVo Foundation, which is dedicated to catalyzing a transformation in global society, moving from a culture of domination to one of equality and partnership.
“Now more than ever, America – and Baltimore and its surrounding counties – must come together around shared values, to build stronger communities and help every person,” said Franklyn Baker, president and CEO, United Way of Central Maryland. “We’ve partnered with Peter to engage people in lasting change. Like United Way, Peter is dedicated building thriving communities; his music and engagement empower his audience to do more, especially on issues affecting women and children, equity and inclusion. United Ways across the country have and will also host Peter on this tour, and we’re hopeful these inspiring events, grounded in shared values and United Way’s 130+ years of community-building, will help spark more people to step up to make a bigger difference in cities across the country.”
Peter’s Baltimore stop will include a tour of the United Way Ben Center, which provides wraparound programs provided by a network of partners, including an on-site early childhood development program for Benjamin Franklin High School teen parents and their infants and toddlers. Peter will also tour the surrounding Brooklyn/Curtis Bay neighborhood one of the many communities United Way of Central Maryland works in.
