Frost for the Fund

Frost for the Fund

Frost for the Fund is one of our favorite annual internal fundraisers. For this event, we challenge our Portillo's team members to enter a fun cake frosting challenge. This allows our Team Members to do what they do best - frost cakes! Participation is simple for our teams - they beautifully frost a cake as fast as they can, all in the name of supporting the Heart of Portillo's Fund.

Silent Auction

At our Restaurant Support Center every year, we hold a silent auction to raise money for the Heart of Portillo's Fund. From sports memorabilia to team members creating beautiful artwork, to local breweries and in-kind donations from restaurants, it's a great way to bring the community together for a great cause.
