On Tuesday, October 8, 2013, Partnership with Children hosted its 11th Annual Wine Tasting entitled A Taste of the Good Life at Midtown Loft & Terrace in Manhattan. The benefit evening featured delicious culinary fare from NYC’s top restaurants including Dos Caminos and Asellina, paired with wines from some of the world’s top vineyards.
Event Chair Stefan Zellmer and Partnership with Children’s Board President Patricia Soussloff welcomed over 100 supporters including Maggie Norris, Ian Broadwater, Bill Tucker, Lelle Henrichsen, Leesa Rowland and Larry Wohl.
The night also included a silent auction featuring wines donated by merchants including Empire State Cellars and ACME Fine Wines. The event benefitted Partnership with Children, which brings teams of Masters-level social workers into the most underserved public schools in NYC to provide counseling and classroom interventions for students at the highest risk of academic failure and dropout.
Partnership with Children’s model is based on decades of experience, careful evaluation and trail-blazing in the field of Social and Emotional Learning (SEL), which develops specific skills crucial to a child’s academic, personal, social and civic development.
The organization's programs increase student attendance and on-task behavior, improve teachers’ classroom management skills, reduce school violence and suspensions, engage families in their children’s education, and allow principals to spend less time on discipline and more time on academic instruction, ultimately changing the culture of the school.
