Anyone who dines at El Portal in Pasadena on Tuesday, July 20, will have an opportunity to help support the Pasadena Senior Center.

The Yucatecan/Mexican restaurant will donate 20 percent of that day’s and evening’s profits to the center on behalf of everyone who says they want to help support the Pasadena Senior Center. Diners can eat at the restaurant or order takeout.

“We have been rolling up our sleeves and coming up with creative solutions to help keep our operations up and running during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Akila Gibbs, the center’s executive director. “Abel Ramirez, founder and co-owner of El Portal with his son Armando, is a living legacy for his passionate and inspiring advocacy for improving and supporting the lives of older adults, and I thank him from the bottom of my heart.”

El Portal,, is at 695 E. Green St. in Pasadena and will be open on July 20 from 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Reservations are requested. Call (626) 795-8553.

“‘I want to support the Pasadena Senior Center’ will be music to my ears on July 20,” Gibbs added.

Anyone who cannot dine at El Portal that day and evening will still have an opportunity to support the center by visiting and clicking on the orange Donate button.

The Pasadena Senior Center is an independent, donor-supported nonprofit organization that has served older adults for more than 60 years.
