OC Restaurant Owner to be Recognized at National Philanthropy Day Luncheon

Bruno Serato Named Outstanding Honoree For Nonprofit Work

After a string of awards and nominations, Anaheim White House owner Bruno Serato will be honored, once again, this time at the 26th Annual National Philanthropy Day Awards on Thursday, November 15 at the Hyatt Regency’s Grand Ballroom in Garden Grove. The popular restaurateur will be recognized for his ongoing work helping feed and house local “motel” children, thus named because their poor, working class parents are relegated to living in low-cost motel rooms. He will be honored along with 8 other outstanding honorees.

The awards luncheon will be hosted by Maria Hall Brown of PBS and presented by the Association of Fundraising Professionals, an organization dedicated to promoting the ethical advancement of philanthropy through advocacy, research, education, and certification programs. Nearly 900 Orange Countians are expected to attend the luncheon. Tickets are available by visiting www.npdoc.org.

“I'm overwhelmed to be among the honorees at this year's National Philanthropy Day Awards,” said Serato. “While my real reward comes from seeing the expressions on the faces of the kids supported by Caterina's Club (the nonprofit he founded that assists motel kids and their families), it is gratifying to be recognized with this award. I accept it on behalf of all of those who work hard to fulfill the mission of my foundation."

Serato operates the Anaheim White House, which is situated in a historic national landmark mansion dating to 1909. It offers a quixotic menu of northern Italian/French fare, extensive wine list, unparalleled service and an elegant setting to create a dining experience that is timeless, remarkable and without equal. The restaurant is located at 887 South Anaheim Blvd. in Anaheim. Reservations are recommended and may be made by calling (714) 772-1381. For more information visit www.anaheimwhitehouse.com.
