Starr Restaurants Raising Money for Philadelphia Schools

Stephen Starr has implemented an initiative at his Philadelphia restaurants called Support Our Schools. The goal of this initiative is to raise $100,000, plus the Starr Restaurant Group will donate $25,000. The money raised will go to help fund multimedia labs, elementary school playgrounds, and six-week summer internships.

Support Our Schools will run for a month but may be extended. Starr restaurants are soliciting donations from Philadelphia customers, which Starr estimated at 40,000 a week. A notice appears on each guest check, and customers can contribute whatever they wish and add it to the meal's total. The entire donation, Starr said, would go to the schools.

So next time you're dining at a Starr restaurant, consider adding to your check to help Philadelphia schools.
