Reception and No Host Bar 5:30 p.m.

Please join the Berkeley Community Fund (BCF) for our 2013 Annual Awards Dinner where we will present the Benjamin Ide Wheeler medal to Hugh Romney, better known worldwide as Wavy Gravy—activist, visionary, philanthropist and compassionate clown extraordinaire.

The prestigious award, established in 1929, honors outstanding Berkeley citizens. Wavy Gravy has devoted his life to positive social change, from the founding of Camp Winnarainbow, a summer camp that has benefitted countless disadvantaged California youth, to co-founding the SEVA Foundation, a Berkeley-based non-profit that has funded major healthcare projects in developing countries throughout the past 35 years.

We look forward to a fun-filled evening that honors Wavy Gravy’s humanitarian contributions, highlights our High Hopes Scholars, and celebrates the uniqueness of Berkeley. The dinner will be curated by renowned chef and BCF Chairman Emeritus Narsai David. Proceeds from the dinner support our High Hopes Scholarship Program.
