Patti Gilbert: A Daughter Remembers, by Laurel Philips
Having lived in Santa Barbara at
least part-time since 89, I usually watched Fiesta Days on television, but a year
ago I decided to buy tickets to the Profant Foundation dinner and performance. My husband
and I dressed appropriately and were enthralled by the dancing and spirit of comraderie
stemming from the Profant family and spilling out over the audience on the courthouse
lawn. I offered to help the foundation and its artists with copyright issues for the
newsletter and eventually began an acting scholarship in my mothers name.
Career highlights include:
- Produced "Sea Marks", a play by Gardner McKay, which won the 1974 Los Angeles Drama Award
- Many years of voice-overs for TV and radio, and cartoons
- Years of modeling and acting in "Get Smart", "Batman" and other early TV programs.
"I really did enjoy all that I did and was fortunate to earn a living doing things creative and fun. I have met and known fabulous people, but best of all my recollections was raising my two daughters, Laurel and Gina." Patti Gilbert
