Connections: LPGA Leaves Rochester; Eradicating Illiteracy

May 29, 2014

To start the show, we spend a few minutes with Linda Hampton, the longtime tournament organizer for the Wegmans LPGA Championship, to discuss the impact of the LPGA's announcement the event is moving to the New York City area in 2015

We then spend the rest of the hour discussing the impact of illiteracy in Rochester, and how Literacy Volunteers of Rochester (LVR) is trying to eradicate it. We talk with LVR Executive Director Bob Mahar, who is joined by Jennifer Stevens, Delmi Rivera, Jake Pietruszewski, and Irina Statnikova.
