Does his generosity know no bounds? Sir Bruno Serato, owner of the critically acclaimed Anaheim White House restaurant, is giving away 10,000 free meals to OC nonprofits so that they can raise funds to help fulfill their missions. The popular “100 For 100” giveaway, which he launched several years ago, offers 100 special event packages to the first 100 Orange County nonprofits to apply. Each of the 100 chosen will be given access to the restaurant’s West Wing banquet hall at a mutually convenient date and a lavish luncheon for up to 100 guests will be donated (includes entrées, non-alcoholic beverages and desserts). Nonprofits may use the catering package as a fundraiser, opportunity to recognize donors, annual meeting, etc.
“This is one of my favorite times of the year when I can help out a variety of worthy organizations that need help with fundraising,” said Serato, who knows firsthand about the challenges facing nonprofits as he operates his own, Caterina’s Club, that has fed more than 1 million “motel kids” to date. “I’m looking forward to reading the entries.”
Those interested are encouraged to submit a brief (no more than 1-page) description of their 503-C nonprofit and how they hope the free lunch giveaway will benefit them to [email protected] or by fax to 714.722.7062. The deadline for submissions is October 1; those selected will be named soon thereafter.
The Anaheim White House is situated in a historic national landmark mansion dating to 1909. The Italian Steak House offers a varied menu, extensive wine list, unparalleled service and an elegant setting to create an unforgettable dining experience.
For his humanitarian work, Serato has earned international publicity including profiles in People Magazine, “CBS Evening News” and newspapers and magazines the world over. Among his many honors is being named a CNN Hero, being knighted by the Italian government, receiving a papal blessing from Pope Francis, getting a humanitarian award on the steps of the U.S. Capitol, being honored by the Good News Foundation and receiving numerous proclamations, Man of the Year awards and other forms of recognition — all of which he accepts to generate public awareness of the needs of our most vulnerable population – our children.
