Larry and Cindy Richert

On October 31, 2017, the Larry and Cindy Richert Playground was dedicated at The School at McGuire Memorial that will allow children with physical and intellectual disabilities the opportunity to experience joy in a fully accessible play space. Funded by Bob and Chris Pietrandrea, the decision to name this playground after KDKA Radio’s Larry Richert and his wife, Cindy seemed a perfect fit. Larry has been associated with McGuire Memorial for more than ten years, and the couple embodies what makes the Pittsburgh area and community a warm and caring place for everyone.
