This week Pasadena is brimming with food and festivities for good causes. The third annual Pasadena Platinum, benefitting the Pasadena YMCA, will take place this Thursday. Showcasing some of Pasadena’s most popular restaurants and auctioning off lavish resort vacations, the evening will raise funds for the Pasadena YMCA, which serves more than 2,000 families and children a year. Participating restaurants include BarCelona, Dona Rosa, Magnolia Lounge, Mi Piace and Twin Palms, among others. Come for the benefit, the food, or an excuse to come see the just-opened new Convention Center.
