On Saturday, April 6th, His Royal Highness Prince Emanuele Filiberto of Savoy was the guest of honor at a formal charity gala, sponsored by the American Foundation of Savoy Orders, which benefited Caterina’s Club, and resulted in 11 Southern California underprivileged families finding permanent homes. Caterina’s Club, founded by humanitarian Bruno Serato, is known worldwide for not only finding homes for needy families but feeding thousands of hungry children each week and helping at-risk youth avert gang life through his Hospitality Academy. Daniel J. McClory, a Southern California-based Director of the Savoy Foundation Board, served as Event Co-Chairman and Master of Ceremonies.

Among the evening’s guests were the Pierce family: single mother, Caroline, and her three children, 12, 8 and 3, who found a permanent home thanks to Caterina’s Club. “There wasn’t a dry eye in the house after guests met Caroline, who like so many of our beneficiaries is a hard worker but was homeless because of circumstances beyond her control. Her meager wages prevented her from being able to pay the first and last month’s rent and security deposit required by most apartment management companies,” said Serato. “Like the Pierces, we now have 11 other families who will have homes thanks to the generosity of the American Foundation of Savoy Orders and its dedicated supporters. We are truly grateful.”

HRH Prince Emanuele Filiberto of Savoy said: "The Savoy Orders are my family’s ancient orders of knighthood. They have traditionally been devoted to charitable works, and recognize individuals for their contributions in public service, medicine, the arts, music, government, business and philanthropy. Caterina’s Club and the work of Chef Bruno Serato, a Savoy knight, is a great and contemporary cause to support in our royal tradition of assistance to the less fortunate,” the Prince concluded.

The House of Savoy refers to the Italian Royal Family whose ancient origins can be traced as far back as 1003 to the alpine region where today Italy borders France. Through gradual expansion, the Savoy Dynasty grew in power to eventually unify and rule the Kingdom of Italy until 1946 when, in the aftermath of World War II, the monarchy was replaced by the Italian Republic.
