Patrick T. Smith
Director of Special Events, Macy's Northwest

Patrick Smith, who began his career at Macy’s in 1978 and now oversees Special Events in the Northwest, has been involved with Macy’s Passport Presents Glamorama since the first show 30 years ago, when he volunteered to be an usher. He soon became an integral part of the annual HIV/AIDS fashion show fundraiser and worked closely with founding chair, legendary actress, and AIDS activist Dame Elizabeth Taylor to help bring awareness of the cause and event to new levels.

Patrick is actively involved in the community, supporting fundraising and many of Macy’s nonprofit partners, including community hospitals, homebound senior meal delivery, and HIV/AIDS service organizations.

Patrick divides his time between San Francisco and Palm Springs with his partner of 34 years.
