The mission of Communities In Schools of

Philadelphia, Inc. is to surround students with

a community of support, empowering them to

stay in school and achieve in life.

1. A one-on-one relationship with a caring adult

2. A safe place to learn and grow

3. A healthy start and a healthy future

4. A marketable skill to use upon graduation

5. A chance to give back to peers and community

Our

Five

Basics

(4)

The Communities In Schools (CIS) idea was conceived in the hearts and minds of

a group of young men and women motivated by a growing concern for the plight

of the urban poor. Because many public school systems are over-taxed,

communities must work together to put young people on the right track. CIS was

created in 1977 by founder and president, Bill Milliken, as a grassroots program

devoted to working with youth who were potential dropouts, had dropped out of

school, were unemployed, homeless and/or substance abusers.

Over the past thirty years, Communities In Schools, Inc. has become the largest

stay-in-school network in the United States. With over 180 independent

non-profi t affi

liates providing services to prevent and reduce the rate of school

dropouts and better prepare students for the challenges of the world of work, CIS

has served over one million students in the last school year alone.

Communities In Schools of Philadelphia, Inc. (CISP) was incorporated in 1986 and

works in close partnership with The School District of Philadelphia (SDP) to

leverage community resources on behalf of students and their families. Currently,

over 10,000 individual needs are addressed annually.

“My Compliments to the Chef” is

Communities In Schools of Philadelphia,

Inc.’s scholarship fund-raising event. The

proceeds support advanced culinary

training scholarships for rising junior

and senior students. Students attend

Community College of Philadelphia

during the school year and summer,

where they earn three to nine credits

that can be transferred to the college

or university of their choice. Students

are also given the opportunity to take

advanced culinary classes in the summer

at the following institutions: Culinary

Institute of America, Johnson & Wales

University, Art Institute of Philadelphia,

The Restaurant School at Walnut Hill

College, Penn State University, and Drexel

University.

Eight years ago, this event was the

brainchild of Carolyn Wimbush, the

former CHP Coordinator. Ms. Wimbush

dreamed of an event which showcased

the talents of CHP students, raised funds

for advanced culinary training, and

provided exposure to area restaurants

that supported the CHP program.

Madeline Brown and the communications

department turned the dream into a

reality.

Each year, we have provided our guests

with a delectable, energizing and

unforgettable culinary experience at an

aff ordable price. We honor outstanding

Philadelphians who have supported

Communities In Schools of Philadelphia,

Inc. and made a diff erence in the lives of

the children in this city.

We thank you for your continued support

over the years. Together, we have helped

make our students’ dreams come true.

Communities In Schools of Philadelphia,

Inc. continues to fulfi ll its mission to

surround students with a community of

support, empowering them to stay in

school and achieve in life.

On behalf of Communities In Schools of Philadelphia, I would like to welcome you to the 9th annual “My Compliments to the Chef.”

2010 is a year of change and a year of hope. As Communities In Schools of Philadelphia embraces the needs of a changing community, we respond with innovative answers that support regional priorities. We’re going green by

downsizing tonight’s souvenir journal, and have once again provided an aff ordable means for culinary exploration. With so many priorities encased in our daily lives, we are pleased to present to you a night of simple enjoyment in support of local students’ culinary dreams!

Since 1999, Communities In Schools of Philadelphia, in partnership with The School District of Philadelphia, has annually addressed over 10,000 individual student needs with academic enrichment, social service and workforce

development. I must emphasize that the overall success of our organization, and more specifi cally the Culinary and Hospitality Program, is whole-heartedly due to the unwavering support of our many community advocates. Tonight, we honor Herr Foods, Inc. and Partick Perti of Swenson Arts and Technology High

School for their continued support of our program and its students. Whether a chef, restaurant, business, fellow non-profi t, post-secondary institution, staff , teacher, parent or administrator, to each we owe a special “thank you” for making this night of celebration possible.

In addition, I can’t forget to acknowledge the talented sounds of the Simon Gratz Jazz Ensemble and the wonderfully skilled Dobbins Career and Technical Education High School Graphics Communication Department for supplying essential products and services for this event. Be prepared to be wowed by our dedicated students and teachers, as they take you on a culinary journey capable of satisfying the most sophisticated palates. We encourage you to interact with our students and staff , browse the silent auction and enjoy the historic atmosphere of Independence Hall and downtown Philadelphia.

WDAS-FM RADIO

GUILLERMO PERNOT

CONCEPT CHEF, CUBA LIBRE RESTAURANT

A native Philadelphian, Patty Jackson, was born on November 4th,

and is celebrating more than 25 years in broadcasting. She

attended South Philadelphia Motivation High School and the

American Academy of Broadcasting before embarking on her radio

career at WSSJ in Camden, NJ. Her diverse career has included

country, urban and pop formats, including Power 99 FM and Q102.

But, her warm and soulful voice found its true home with adult

radio listeners on WDAS-FM.

Nationally renowned chef and restaurateur Guillermo Pernot joined

Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar as the top toque in the Fall of

2006. As Concept Chef, Pernot is responsible for maintaining the

quality, taste and authenticity of Cuba Libre’s cuisine at all locations

as the company expands its concept across America. His newly

introduced dinner, lunch and brunch menus envision what Cuba’s

cuisine would be like today, if it had continued to fl ourish beyond

the golden era of the 1950s. Dishes feature meticulously prepared

exotic vegetables and fruits and are full of color, aroma and style.
