In our own words – “We love this neighborhood and we love the Derby. Since 2001 we have invested in Kensington’s revitalization by bringing high quality manufacturing back to the ‘Workshop of the World.’ And since its start, we have supported the Derby, even entering one of our own kinetic sculptures alongside our neighbors,” says PBC owner, Nancy Barton. “We are hoping to incite others to support this unique community event through a pledge to match every gift dollar for dollar.”
