In honor of being a service to those in need, the Centerplate team at the Pasadena Convention Center prepared nearly 300 turkeys for the Union Station Homeless Services Dinner in the Park event for Thanksgiving dinner on Nov. 22 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. The event was held at Pasadena Central Park and fed more than 1,000 people.
“We are proud to once again have the Pasadena Convention Center and Centerplate lend its support to Union Station Homeless Services by preparing turkeys for those in need of a nourishing meal,” said Michael Ross, CEO, Pasadena Center Operating Company. “We applaud Union Station’s work to serve thousands of meals to those less fortunate during the holiday season and are pleased to participate in such a giving cause.”
“This is a small gesture, but one we are proud to make each year for the local Pasadena community,” added Doug Finney, district manager, Centerplate.
Over the years, Centerplate has played an integral role in servicing a variety of meetings, events and conventions at the Pasadena Convention Center and Civic Auditorium. Highlighted 2018 events include the 49th Annual NAACP Image Awards, the Daytime Emmy Awards, Methodist Hospital Gala and most recently, the globally recognized COSPAR scientific assembly which welcomed 3,000 attendees over seven days to the property. Most recently, Centerplate hired Brandon Barousse, CDM, as the new executive chef to lead its food and beverage offerings.
