The Anaheim White House Italian Steakhouse will kickoff the holidays by holding a toy drive starting Nov 21. Patrons visiting the restaurant from then until December 24 are encouraged to bring an unwrapped toy that will be donated to the underprivileged children served by Caterina’s Club, the internationally recognized nonprofit founded by Sir Bruno Serato that feeds disadvantaged children and finds permanent housing for families in need.
Guests also are encouraged to bring their cameras as the restaurant and its grounds will be festively decorated for the season.
Situated in a historic national landmark mansion dating to 1909, the Anaheim White House offers an extensive menu of northern Italian fare including prime grade steaks and fresh seafood, extensive wine list, unparalleled service and an elegant setting to create an extraordinary dining experience. With its close proximity to Disneyland, the dining establishment has become a favorite destination for tourists, locals and dignitaries visiting the park. Among the luminaries from the worlds of entertainment, sports and politics are Madonna, Sidney Portier, Andrea Bocelli, Gwen Stefani, Wolfgang Puck, Derek Jeter, Oscar de la Hoya, President Jimmy Carter, President George W. Bush and the Crown Prince of Belgium.
Caterina’s Club feeds hungry children, finds permanent housing for families in need and trains at-risk youth for careers in the hospitality industry. For his work, Serato has earned international publicity including profiles in People Magazine and has appeared on countless TV news and talk shows including “The Drew Barrymore Show,” “Access Hollywood,” “The Doctor’s” “CBS Evening News” and “NBC Nightly News.” Among his many honors: CNN Hero, knighted by the Italian government, knighted by the House of Savoy, Ellis Island Medal of Honor, papal blessing from Pope Francis, humanitarian award on the steps of the U.S. Capitol, and numerous proclamations, Man of the Year awards and other forms of recognition — all of which he accepts to generate public awareness of Caterina’s Club.
