17th Annual Awards Dinner, 10/21/2010

August 30th, 2010 ·

We have selected our High Hopes Scholars for 2010 – the third class we have been able to help attend four year college. This year’s students were impressive and their stories compelling. We hope that our annual scholarship award of $4,000 and the support of our mentors will make it easier for them to succeed. We now turn to our other big event for the year – the Annual Awards Dinner to honor people and organizations that have been involved in extraordinary ways for the common good of our community.

This year we are proud to award Denny Abrams and Richard Millikan, developers of Fourth Street, with the 2010 Benjamin Ide Wheeler Medal, which since 1929, has been given to a person or persons who has provided outstanding service to our community. Along with Denny and Richard, we will be honoring the Berkeley Public Library Foundation and Ilene Abrams, former college counselor at Berkeley High School with BCF Education Awards, at our dinner on:

Thursday, October 21, 2010

at H’s Lordship’s Restaurant on the Berkeley Marina

We invite you to sponsor a table at the dinner and join us for a wonderful evening to celebrate what is best about Berkeley – the variety of people, opportunities and interests that surrounds us. By sponsoring a table at the dinner – and by inviting your friends and colleagues to attend — you help support the BCF organization and allow us to increase the number of Berkeley students we can help each year. At the same time, you get to hear about what we are doing and meet some of the students we are supporting. Because of your position in our community and your continuing support for education, being able to list you as a Dinner supporter, in the invitations that will go out broadly and in the dinner program, will encourage others to attend and support our work.

Below you will find a form that describes the options for sponsoring a table at the dinner. Please consider it and feel free to call us if you have any questions about the event. We are looking forward to a great evening and to having you there to share it.
