Pat Laine Smith has been a dedicated, loyal and committed volunteer for over 2O years for Easter Seals Ontario. Honestly, it does not matter what the task or event at hand, Pat is there with a friendly smile, and a heart of gold to brighten anyone’s day. Pats gentle guidance, strong support and her love for Easter Seals kids is evident year after year.
Pat is one of Easter Seals Ontario greatest ambassadors within York Simcoe community, she continually is committed to bring her energy, ideas to every Easter Seals event, from golf tournaments, Dancing with Easter Seals Barrie, she will even drive south to Newmarket/Aurora and Vaughan (she hates driving), and support our annual Dancing with Easter Seals Stars Aurora/Newmarket and York Simcoe Hockey Classic year after year. She has been instrumental in volunteering week after week at the Barrie Colt games, selling 50/50 tickets in support of Easter Seals; she is always recruiting new volunteers to ensure there is a full team at every game.
Not only does Pat volunteer, she devotes time with our Easter kids and their families and is an excellent, vocal ambassador within our community. She constantly is promoting and brings awareness about who we are. If we could create a template of what would make the ‘perfect volunteer’, Pat Laine Smith is your lady. Pat’s love and compassion for Easter Seals kids and their families is a true blessing to our organization. With all of her hard work and dedication, she continually helps our Easter Seals kids be unstoppable!
