Bill and Pat Anton
Philanthropists Bill and Pat Anton founded the Anton Family Foundation in 2005 to create an entity through which they could give back to the organizations and communities that have shaped and enriched their lives. Their gift allocation covers everything from cultural & historical preservation and land & water conservation to fine & performing arts and education. From providing major support to The Culinary Institute of America to taking part as the title sponsor of the Killington Music Festival in Vermont, the Anton’s generosity has had critical influence in encouraging cultural talent to flourish.
In 2010, dreaming of their summer home on Lake Michigan, the Antons acquired legendary business tycoon Jock Whitney’s incomparable 20-meter classic motor yacht, Elegante. A Rhode Island native who loves sailing, Pat thoroughly enjoys being out on the water and taking advantage of her beautiful surroundings. An avid golfer who has played the finest golf courses in the world, Bill cherishes his time spent and memories made with family and friends aboard the one-of-a-kind classic Elegante.
