There are two videos today, related to each other, that tell a wonderful story. Watch the first to see how an idea for literally serving a community of children becomes a mission. Raised in France and Italy, Bruno Serato came to the United States with $200 in his pocket in 1980. Twenty-five years later his momma came to visit and everything changed. (More after the video.)
Five years after the above video, tragedy struck. An electrical fire. All seemed lost. Until…
(Some images are repeated from the earlier piece for continuity.)
More after the video below.
Three weeks ago Bruno Serato was inducted into the Restaurant Hall of Fame. And some time this spring his “White House” restaurant will reopen after a massive rebuild . Meanwhile his charity continues to serve 3,500 children every day at 62 locations in Orange County, Long Beach and Los Angeles.
Very sweet. We should all do so much.
What a beautiful story! I teared up! It’s nice to have your faith in humanity restored after witnessing all the horrific events unfolding. Thank you for the share!
What a great way to end the work week with this great story of love and generosity. Thanks Steve for showing us some goodness in the country.
Touching and beautiful. Thank you.
This is fabulous! The Lord provides and works in and through everything – His wonders to perform!!! Thank you for sharing this wonderful work!

How can I watch this and not get teary-eyed along with Bruno, says a former foster mom.

Loved this, Steve–thanks! For me, this dovetails with the passing of Billy Graham and reminds me again of how God can use one person in amazing ways. Thanks for sharing.
Steve, though I try to read every blog post from your agency, and if I don’t have time, I squirrel them away in a file for possible reading later, I never read your “Fun Fridays” because I’m busy, and I quickly delete anything that comes through that isn’t important.
I can’t tell you why I kept this one. Not just kept it, but kept looking at the closed email, and wondering why I was keeping it.
Today was my birthday, I’m about to go out with my family, but something got me to open this one.
Nicest Birthday present I got today–truly warms the heart.
