Based in Bend, Oregon, Patric holds a deep desire to foster a thriving community with newcomers and locals. He understands the challenges faced by individuals searching for a like-minded tribe and aims to address this need through amazing events and adventures here in Bend. Having experienced his own struggle to connect with others when he initially moved from the Bay Area 14 years ago, Patric realized that he was not alone in his quest for a real community in Bend. This realization led to the birth of The Bend Social Co, a platform where individuals can come together, find their tribe, and forge meaningful connections.

Meet Events Manager Ånna

Introducing Ånna Rohrer: Trailblazer, Adventurer, and Passionate Connector

Ånna Rohrer was born in Oregon with a childhood spent in Singapore, she developed an early appreciation for exploring new places and cultures. Her wanderlust led her to experience life in the New England area and Alberta, Canada, before returning to Oregon.

One of Ånna's most notable hobbies is long-distance trail running. Inspired by trying to keep up with her older brothers playing soccer as a kid, she delved into high school track and cross-country.

Beyond her personal pursuits, Ånna's heart lies in giving back to others. Her international travels have taken her through Scandinavia, Eastern Europe, the Caribbean, and East Africa. Notably, her family's involvement in establishing a girl's home in Kitale, Kenya, to support pregnant teens in finishing school and gaining essential skills and education, deeply touched her. She has made multiple trips to Kenya to manage the home and work directly with the girls, finding the experience both humbling and life-changing.

 Ånna embraces opportunities for exploration and believes in the power of connecting with people. As a passionate advocate for fostering meaningful connections and sharing fun experiences, she is thrilled to be part of the Bend Social Co team bringing people together. Join us today!
