Pat Snyder was honored April 7 at Peconic Ballet Theatre’s annual Black & White gala. The event took place at the Sea Star Ballroom at the Hyatt Place Long Island in Riverhead.

Snyder was recognized for her continued service and support of Peconic Ballet Theatre and the Peconic Ballet Foundation which began at the inception of both organizations. She collaborated with the theater for Art Barre, offered musicians and artists from East End Arts, wrote grants and provided guidance and professional advice.

Christina Bitonti, director of Peconic Ballet Theatre, said “Pat is guiding and leading Peconic Ballet Foundation into the future. We thank her so much for being part of Peconic Ballet Foundation’s journey, for volunteering her time, and for making a difference on the East End cultural arts.”

Snyder said of her involvement with the foundation, “The dance experience goes way beyond dance, it’s about developing confidence and self-worth. Christiana Bitonti is a huge asset to Riverhead. I am pleased to be able to donate my time and expertise to Peconic Ballet Foundation.”
