Altadena Residents Invited to Fundraising Event for the American Cancer Society at El Patron Mexican Restaurant


Come to El Patron Mexican Restaurant, 2555 N. Lake Avenue in Altadena, on May 27 to support a local Relay for Life team as you feed yourself and your family.

Twenty percent of the proceeds between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. will be given to Relay for Life Altadena in  advance of the May 30 American Cancer Society Relay for Life event, which will be held in Farnsworth Park, 568 E. Mount Curve Ave., in Altadena.

El Patron serves a variety of authentic Mexican dishes like the carnitas plate: a plate of deep fried pork with tomatoes, onion and cilantro; Chile Colorado; burritos, quesadillas, and much more. For patrons over 21 years of age the winearita – a margarita made with agave wine – is a customer favorite.

The American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life is an annual relay-style walking event that honors cancer survivors, cancer patients and their caregivers and those who have lost their lives. .
