Pasadena Police Foundation’s Annual Chief’s Breakfast Is Oct. 12
The Pasadena Police Foundation is hosting its annual breakfast back in-person with Pasadena’s Chief of Police John E. Perez at 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 12, at the Rose Bowl-Court of Champions (1001 Rose Bowl Drive).
The event is intended to give residents, members of the business and nonprofit communities an opportunity to hear about the current goals and accomplishments of the Pasadena Police Department. There will also be an auction to raise funds for the foundation.
The Police Foundation’s annual Breakfast is also an opportunity to see first-hand how the foundation fulfills its mission to support the planning, development and implementation of programs and activities of the department and vital programs such as the Kids Safety Academy, the Junior Public Safety Academy, the Explorer Program, the Police K-9 Unit and resources to enhance community safety.
“This year we are raising funds to continue our efforts supporting the local Pasadena youth,” a spokesperson said. “The global pandemic has changed all of our lives and has had a significant impact on the education of local children. The pandemic created new challenges with remote learning and the need for new technology in the class rooms.
“Last year, through our efforts, we were able to raise over $30,000 which was used to help meet the technology needs of local students. Education is one of the most important factors in determining the wellbeing of our local community and we hope through our efforts this year to continue to ensure that our local youth are provided the best opportunities to succeed.”
In addition to raising funds for youth, the organization will be honoring Chief John Perez for his years of service as he heads into retirement.
“This is a great opportunity to contribute to the future of Pasadena by raising money to give laptops to our local students,” said Pasadena Police Foundation President Gilbert Mares.
The emcee for this year’s event will be Jeff Michael, Virgin Galactic’s communications specialist.
