Benvenuto’s-Platteville recently presented a check to Cindy Tang, PHS Scholarship Fund Advisory Board Member.  Monies were available as a result of the Benvenuto’s Dine Out for the PHS Scholarship Fund, a monthly promotion on the first Tuesday of every month. 

When the server is informed by the customer that they wish to support the Dine Out for PHS program, Benvenuto’s-Platteville donates a percentage of the customer’s bill to the Fund. 

Benvenuto’s-Platteville also supports the PHS Scholarship Fund through its Gift Card Program.  For each Benvenuto’s gift card purchased,  the buyer receives full value of the card at any Benvenuto’s restaurant.  In addition, Benvenuto’s remits 10 percent of the card value to the PHS Scholarship Fund.  Benvenuto’s gift cards are available from any PHS Scholarship Fund Advisory Board member, at the main office of Platteville High School, at Livingston State Bank on Main Street, at the Platteville Main Street offices, or by phone at 608-348-9824 or by mail at CFSW/PHS Scrip Program Card Request, P.O. Box 46, Platteville, WI 53818.

The PHS Scholarship Fund’s mission is to expand access to higher education for the students of the Platteville School District.  The Fund fulfills this mission primarily by providing higher education scholarships for Platteville graduates to help them further their post-high school education.  “LIKE” the PHS Scholarship Fund on Facebook to keep up with other great ways to assist PHS students.
