Spirit of Volunteerism Awards

Patricia Petric

Pacific Symphony is excited to be honoring our very own volunteer, Pat Petric, at this year’s OneOC Spirit of Volunteerism Awards Luncheon at Disneyland Hotel, Thursday, April 26, 2018.

Pat has been volunteering with Pacific Symphony since the program was founded in 2016. She has volunteered over 500 hours as a Class Act Ambassador, Marketing Welcome Ambassador at the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall and as a Greeter at Pacific Symphony’s main offices. She is the face that greets many music patrons, students and families and she enjoys engaging with the staff. Pat rarely misses a day! Her enthusiasm, positive demeanor, infectious smile and her desire to give back to Pacific Symphony exemplifies a Pacific Symphony Ambassador. We are grateful for her valued contribution to classical music and Pacific Symphony. Thank you Pat. We adore you!

Spirit of Volunteerism AwardsThe annual Spirit of Volunteerism Awards was established in 1976 to recognize volunteers for their dedicated service and involvement in Orange County, and has grown from a small nonprofit awards program into a community-wide celebration. OneOC was founded in 1958 to help connect volunteers to Orange County nonprofits and businesses. OneOC has since grown into the largest and most comprehensive volunteer center in the country.
