  • Los Angeles-Long Beach, CA (1888PressRelease) April 18, 2014 - An international audience will have their attention focused on one OC philanthropist who has been feeding the county's poor children every night for 9 years. CNN, which bestowed its Heroes Award to Bruno Serato in 2011, will feature an update on his work in feeding OC's growing hunger problem especially prevalent among its "motel" children, so named because their poor, working class parents are relegated to living in cheap, crime-filled motels. What started out as 2,100 meals each week has grown to 5,000 and he now served kids in Anaheim, Garden Grove, Buena Park and Stanton. In addition, he is now finding housing for many of those families.

    CNN's update on Serato will appear on both that network and its sister HLN on the following days and times (all times are Eastern Standard Time):

    FRIDAY (4/18)

    Among Serato's many accolades was recently being recognized on the Vatican's own television network for the extraordinary lengths he took to keep the program growing despite personal sacrifice. i.e., he mortgaged his home to keep the program running. Also, he was also knighted by the Italian government, received a humanitarian award on the steps of the U.S. Capitol, honored by the Good News Foundation, received any number of proclamations, Man of the Year awards and other forms of recognition.
