“After the world watched the most evil of acts, America summoned a sense of unity and common purpose. The worst act of man was met with the very best of humanity,” said Bruno Serato, owner of the Anaheim White House and founder of Caterina’s Club. “On this special anniversary, we will celebrate the triumph of the human spirit. Not the capacity to do evil, but the capacity to do good. Not the desire to destroy, but the wish to save. We are all one people united by a set of common ideals. By giving back to our community, by serving people in need, by protecting those who are the most vulnerable, we reaffirm our ideals with the commitment to be better.”
Anaheim White House is located at 887 S. Anaheim Street in Anaheim; www.anaheimwhitehouse.com
