SunFest Volunteer Spotlights

We’d like to recognize some of our volunteers for going above and beyond with their contributions at SunFest.

We thank you for ALL that you do!


Petey Glover, Chair of Chairs 2015, Committee Chair, Sponsorship Committee


What has been your favorite SunFest experience/moment?

I get goose bumps every time I look out at the enormous sea of people at the concerts. I am reminded of what a wonderful opportunity it is to be part of such a fantastic festival.  Meeting wonderful people, making new friends, and working with some of the most dedicated volunteers I have ever met. Also, winning the President’s Pinnacle Award in 2003 was truly an honor.

When you’re not volunteering at SunFest, what are you doing?

I am an office administrator for a small law firm.  I love to travel, fish, golf with my husband John, and enjoy spending time with our family & friends.

What 3 words best describe you?

Fun, friendly, loyal

Who has been your favorite SunFest performer?

Pitbull & James Taylor



Ashley Keilty, Vice Chair, Gates Committee


What has been your favorite SunFest experience/moment?

My favorite SunFest experience/moment would have to be the fireworks! The way that the fireworks and music come together makes for an amazing time while I sit with family, friends and strangers on the sea wall!

When you’re not volunteering at SunFest, what are you doing?

When I’m not volunteering at SunFest, I am working towards getting my Bachelor’s Degree in Biology, applying for Pharmacy School, working or enjoying time off with my husband, family and friends.

Where is your favorite Palm Beach County dine/watering hole?

One of my favorite restaurants in West Palm Beach would have to be Grimaldi’s Pizzeria! I definitely make it a priority to make a visit during SunFest.

Which artists will we find on your iTunes?

My iTunes has a variety of all types of music. Right now, you can find Ariana Grande, John Mayer, The Temptations, Taylor Swift and of course my favorite artist Bruno Mars.
