Pittsburgh Attracts Young Talent

More young, college graduates are choosing to settle in Pittsburgh!

According to a report published by the City Observatory, Pittsburgh is attracting an increasing number of young, college graduates.  In fact, from 2000-2012, the number of college graduates aged 25 to 34 residing in Pittsburgh increased by 29 percent!
Our incredible universities in Oakland (CMU, Pitt, and Carlow) draw this age group to the area, and with all the fantastic things Pittsburgh has to offer, it’s unsurprising that they don’t want to leave!

Power of Pink!

For the month of October, Oakland Bakery is baking confections for a cause!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!  To support the cause, Oakland Bakery will donate a portion of the proceeds from their delicious, pink treats to Breast Cancer Research.  Stop in for a sweet treat to support an even sweeter cause.
