PASADENA, CA — The Centerplate team at the Pasadena Convention Center prepared 300 turkeys for the Union Station Homeless Services Dinner in the Park event on Nov. 28. The event took place at Pasadena Central Park and fed more than 1,000 people.
“Over the past five years, it has been an honor for the Pasadena Convention Center and Centerplate to donate resources in order to help make Union Station Homeless Services Dinner in the Park a success,” said Michael Ross, CEO of the Pasadena Center Operating Company. “We are grateful for the services and meals they offer and are pleased to participate in such a giving cause.”
This is the first year the meal was led by Jon Dubrick, Centerplate’s new Regional Executive Chef who oversees the creation of food offerings at the convention center and civic auditorium.
“This is a small gesture, but one we are proud to make each year for the local Pasadena community on behalf of our Centerplate and Sodexo joint team,” added Doug Finney, District Manager, Centerplate.
