Pat Dando Gave Back to Her Community Her Entire Life, Now Her Community Honors Her with A Bronze Statue
After her passing in 2017, an endowment was set up to honor philanthropist, Pat Dando of San Jose, CA.

She also volunteered at the San Jose Women's Shelter for Domestic Violence, was co-founder of the Almaden Valley Counseling Service, and co-founded the Stroke Awareness Foundation.
