I had the privilege of being Bruno's guest in 2006 at the annual lighting of the Christmas Tree at the Anaheim White House restaurant, and saw first hand the tremendous work he does for "motel kids." Since April 18, 2005 he has provided pasta meals to the Boys and Girls Club members every
Monday-Friday for a grand total of 213,500 meals served. On average, more than 100 kids are fed daily.
Michael Baker, executive director of the Anaheim Boys and Girls Clubs of Anaheim advising him of his selection. Here it is showing clearly the incredible work Bruno does for the less fortunate:
"I am very pleased to inform you that the Boys and Girls Clubs of Anaheim's
Gala Committee has selected you as our honoree this year. The Gala will take
place on Saturday March 20, 2010 6:30 pm at Disney's Grand Californian
Hotel. Your years of service and dedication to the kids we serve every
single day is above all others. When I look back on our relationship over
the past 9 years I am amazed at what you have done for our organization.
When considering other individuals for this honor nobody else even came
close to what you have done for this organization. Here are some key
milestones that you have accomplished for us:

"Since April 18, 2005 you have provided pasta meals to our members every
Monday-Friday for a grand total of 213,500 meals served.
"Knowing these statistics how could we not honor you?
"On behalf of the 2,500 members of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Anaheim I
thank you for your continued support. It is because of individuals like you
that the Boys and Girls clubs of Anaheim is The Positive Place for Kids."
