We knew Kent as a humble, generous, kind, talented gentleman. He was always interested in the person he was talking to, a trait that led him to develop authentic characters and share lasting friendships.
This Celebration is for listening, learning, creating, sharing, enjoying each others’ company and basking in the joy of remembering and honoring Kent’s words.
We hope you can join us for this inaugural event!
