We in the Bay Area, know Kenneth Behring as the developer of our idyllic neighborhood of Blackhawk, but did you realize that he epitomizes the American dream – working his way up from Depression-era poverty to the Forbes 400 list of richest Americans? He found his purpose in life, however, not in his phenomenal business successes but in the joy of giving. His Global Health and Education Foundation incorporates his many inter- national projects focused on health and education, such as the Wheelchair Founda- tion, support of the Smithsonian Institution, including a new $100MM pledge, and the Principal Leadership Institute at UC Berkeley and UCLA.
Mr. Behring will have copies of his book available for signing.
