Community Partnership School, an Eatiquette partner school, hosted its annual spring fundraiser, “Celebrate CPS…An Evening in Tuscany,” on Thursday, April 30 at Vie, 600 North Broad Street, in Philadelphia. Funds raised through “Celebrate CPS” directly benefit the students and families of CPS, an independent elementary school in North Philadelphia dedicated to providing high-quality education to children from low-income backgrounds.
Jeff Benjamin, co-founder of The Vetri Family of Restaurants and the Vetri Foundation for Children, was honored for his vision and commitment to improving the lives of Philadelphia school children through education and nutrition initiatives. Jeff has served on the Board of Trustees at CPS since 2007 and has been influential in ensuring the school’s participation in the Vetri Eatiquette lunch program.
“Jeff’s dedication and generosity exemplifies the type of commitment every board should be so lucky to have manifest in its members,” said Eric Jones, Head of CPS. “His undying dedication and relentless work have benefitted each and every one of our students, as well as children throughout the Philadelphia area.”
