2017 Business Partner Award Recipient


M.K. Benatti Jewelers, Matt & Karyn Khatib

mk_benattiNewly created, the Business Partner Award is presented to a company that has made particularly noteworthy contributions to the NEF and the Newburyport Public Schools.

For many years, M.K. Benatti Jewelers has been the sole sponsor of the NEF Lighthouse Auction raffle. Matt and Karyn Khatib’s support of the NEF has extended beyond donated jewelry, with them volunteering their time and connections to help improve our schools. With the dollars raised through the Lighthouse Auction raffle, the NEF has been able to complete a number of annual campaigns. The Khatibs are a shining example of how businesses can and should be involved in the communities they are a part of.
