Gale Kohl (center), owner of Gale’s Italian restaurant, received a tribute from Pasadena firefighters last week for her philanthropic efforts and support of the city’s Fire Department. Kohl, who provides three meals to local fire stations three times each week, was recognizing firefighters for their efforts during the recent Bobcat Fire and protection of Mt. Wilson. However, firefighters from Station 32 turned the tables on Kohl at the fundraising event and surprised the Pasadena restaurateur by honoring her.
