More than 135 friends and neighbors attended the second Tapas Talks Speakers Series presentation on Jan. 27 at Allegheny Country Club. Christina Cassotis, CEO of the Allegheny County Airport Authority, gave a dynamic talk about the robust turnaround at Pittsburgh International Airport in the number of nonstop destinations served, record passenger traffic growth and an ambitious Terminal Modernization Program.

The evening began with a social hour featuring delicious tapas and a cash bar. Tapas Talks board member Margaret Weir and Sewickley resident CeCe Poister welcomed guests and introduced Cassotis. After the lecture, there was a Q&A session moderated by board member Holly Hampe with dessert, coffee and lively conversation capping the evening.

Tapas Talks is a nonprofit organization to “inform, inspire, connect and engage” the community through a speaker series. Sponsors include Heritage Valley Health System, Howard Hanna, Eat’n Park, Sewickley Public Library and the Kaminski family.
