Bruno Serato presents “Caterina’s Club” at the IIC – Sept. 10

Date 09.09.2015

On the occasion of EXPO Milan 2015 and under the Auspices of the Consulate General of Italy in Los Angeles The Italian Cultural Institute and The Italy-America Chamber of Commerce West cordially invite you to CATERINA’S CLUB presented by Chef Bruno Serato, Founder and President. In 2005, Chef Bruno Serato of Anaheim White House and his mother Caterina visited the Boys and Girls Club, down the street from his restaurant. They soon realized that there were many more of these hungry ‘motel children’ and decided to found Caterina’s Club . Since then, Chef Serato has been serving 1,200 underprivileged children warm dinners, every night. In 2011 Chef Bruno Serato was named one of CNN’s 10 Heroes of the Year and featured in magazines (People, Elle, Vogue, Riviera), television (“CBS Evening News, ” CNN, Univision) and newspapers (New York Times, Los Angeles Times, OC Register) countless times. He was honored on the steps of the U.S. Capitol with a humanitarian award and perhaps his highest honor was being knighted by the Italian Government, earning him the title Sir Bruno Serato.
