Each week, The Observer releases a new video as part of our webisode series, “Patron Saints.” It’s a series that showcases a patron of the arts and the venue to which they donate.
Dr. Phillip Nelson moved to The Glenridge on Palmer Ranch retirement community about a decade ago. The retired OB/GYN had been involved in community theater in his past and was searching for an activity in which to get involved. He joined the Glenridge Performing Arts Group and two choruses and couldn’t get enough. Learn more about how his donations have helped GPAC at www.yourobserver.com/content/Patron-Saints-378.html. Stay tuned to Scene and Heard each week for the next patron.
