ViewSonic Makes Holiday Contribution to Caterina’s Club During Annual Pastathon Fundraiser

Corporate Donation of $5,000 Assists in Feeding Thousands of Local Underprivileged Children in the Orange County Area

BREA, CA (Dec. 11, 2017) – ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of visual solution products, was on hand to present a $5,000 holiday donation to Caterina’s Club at the annual KFI-AM hosted Pastathon that was held at Christ Cathedral in Garden Grove, CA.



Caterina’s Club is looking to raise $350,000, along with 90,000 pounds of pasta and sauce this year. Due to a tragic fire in February of 2017, Caterina’s Club felt it was more important than ever to continue to raise funds that feed more than 3,500 children in the area, five nights a week. Jeff Volpe, president of ViewSonic Americas, presented the check to Caterina’s Club during the event. ViewSonic employees were also at the event to assist in unloading pasta and sauce donations.

“For a second year in a row, ViewSonic is happy to assist Caterina’s Club to help their mission of feeding kids in the surrounding cities,” said Volpe. “We have a corporate culture of social responsibility, and our employees reflect on that responsibility throughout the year. Along with ViewSonic’s corporate donation, our employees have dedicated their time to volunteer and donate pallets of pasta and sauce to the cause, and we hope that any assistance we provide can help Sir Bruno in his mission,” said Volpe.

“Caterina’s Club is appreciative of ViewSonic’s generosity and vision to help us continue our three programs: Feeding the Kids in America, Welcome Home, and Chef Bruno's Hospitality Academy,” said Sir Bruno Serato, founder of Caterina’s Club. “With their help we can sustain serving 3,500 kids a night, move out two families a month into safe housing, and graduate 120 students in our career readiness program. ViewSonic continues to convey the importance of giving back through corporate social responsibility; for it is the budding youth of our communities that fuels our dedication to creating a better future for everyone.”

About Caterina’s Club

Sir Bruno Serato established Caterina's Club, which is named for his beloved mother, after the two visited a local Boys and Girls Club and saw a 7-year-old boy eating a bag of potato chips. When Caterina learned that the snack was all he had for dinner, she instructed her son to head back to the restaurant and feed the children pasta. Today the nonprofit feeds some 2,000 children daily and well over one million meals have been served as the need keeps growing. His influence has extended far beyond Southern California to include Chicago, New York, Texas, Mexico and Italy. Not content to merely feed these families, Serato has extended his mission by moving many of the “motel families” into permanent housing. He has helped hundreds of families escape motel living by finding them apartments of their own and their lives have improved considerably. For more information, visit www.caterinasclub.org.
