  The Malden community is invited to stop by the outdoor patio of Pisa Pizza at 133 Pearl St. in Malden on August 10 from 5 to 8 p.m. to meet Tina LeGarde, the new Executive Director of Urban Media Arts (UMA). This informal meet-and-greet is part of a week-long fundraiser. During the week of August 8-13 from 11-9 p.m., 20% of the revenue fromUMA pizza orders will be donated to UMA.

  UMA is grateful to Pisa Pizza for hosting this occasion and the fundraiser itself. Known for its community involvement, friendly service and wonderful pizza, this well-loved Malden establishment is the perfect choice for a fun and friendly occasion to introduce Tina LeGarde to more of Malden over a delicious slice of pizza.

  After a national search to replace outgoing and retiring Ron Cox, the UMA Board of Directors selected Tina LeGarde to be the next UMA Executive Director. She is a seasoned community media professional and leader from Burnsville, Minn., known for empowering teams and inspiring individual growth among those she works with. In particular, the Board was impressed at her ability to understand and imagine a future for UMA as part of Malden’s burgeoning arts and culture scene. During her short time in Malden – only here since late April – Tina LeGarde has earned the respect of the UMA community as a solid leader who is eager to roll up her sleeves, solve problems, make plans and be of service to Malden in the best way possible.
