The Savoy Foundation, through its “Chivalry for Children's Causes™" mission, is committed to sustaining children's charities, especially during this devastating pandemic.

In response to the devastating impact of COVID-19, The American Foundation of Savoy Orders is re-launching its West Coast spring charity gala - the Third Annual Notte di Savoia Los Angeles - previously scheduled for April 4, 2020 at the Montage Resort in Beverly Hills, into a virtual fundraising event benefiting Caterina's Club. Caterina’s Club has made it its mission to not miss a single day of feeding the kids. Chef Bruno and the Caterina's Club staff are working daily with every program location to ensure kids can be fed a fresh pasta dinner, in keeping with the Savoy Foundation's "Chivalry for Children's Causes™" charitable mandate from HRH Prince Emanuele Filiberto of Savoy, the hereditary Crown Prince of Italy. The Savoy Foundation is encouraging donating online, perhaps in the amount guests were planning to give or spend on gala tickets at the Notte di Savoia event on April 4. The online giving event begins now and runs through May 11, 2020.

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. Because schools in Southern California are officially shut down, children are missing their daily lunches. The Boys and Girls Clubs, where Caterina’s Club distributed dinners to children through after-school programs, have also been closed due to COVID-19. Chef Bruno continues offering fresh pasta for children and their families to take home at drive-throughs and walk-ups outside those locations which are now shut. The Savoy Foundation has already raised $60,000 through its virtual fundraising event. Each dollar given provides one meal for a hungry child.

The Savoy Foundation launched in 2019 its new charitable mission - “Chivalry for Children's Causes™" - to assist institutions and charitable organizations that provide aid to children and families in need, building stable, healthy families, whether enrichment spaces or basic meals for improved health and stable living conditions in economically disadvantaged environments. The program is made possible thanks to generous support from the members and friends of the American Delegation of Savoy Orders. HRH Prince Emanuele Filiberto of Savoy, the hereditary Crown Prince of Italy, said: The Savoy Foundation is committed to sustaining children's charities and adapting its fundraising capabilities to the current pandemic restrictions worldwide. Chef Bruno Serato does tremendous work in Southern California and the Savoy Foundation is pleased to support Caterina's Club once again in 2020."

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 which borders today with Italy, France and Switzerland. 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.
