Local philanthropy gets day of recognition

Two from Anaheim were among top leaders and organizations in the county honored this year for their work in the community during the National Philanthropy Day Orange County luncheon.

The event is sponsored by the Orange County Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals.

Bruno Serato, owner of the Anaheim White House restaurant, was nominated by the Assistance League Anaheim, not for the dishes served in his landmark restaurant but for the more than 300,000 pasta dinners he has served to local children whose families have had to move into local motels, according to the press release.
