The Andrew Graham Scholarship Foundation Banquet at Hs Lordship in Berkeley, CA

The Andrew Graham Scholarship Foundation Banquet

In the spirit of helping provide an equal opportunity for Oakland youth to further their education, my grandfather Andrew Graham, established a nonprofit twelve years ago – ‘The Andrew Graham Scholarship Foundation’. The purpose of the Andrew Graham Scholarship Foundation is to help provide scholarships, school supplies, mentors and whatever else is needed to help give opportunities of a good education to high school students in Oakland furthering their education on a college level. There are three scholarships given to the Oakland public high school seniors with a 3.0 GPA or higher; in the amounts of $1000, $1500, and $2000.

Please consider attending our 12th Annual Awards Banquet, which will be held on Saturday, May 5th, 2012, 6:00 p.m. at Hs. Lordships Restaurant in Berkeley, CA. Tickets are $65.00. All profit from the ticket sales, beyond the cost of the dinner itself, goes directly to the scholarship fund. The purpose of this banquet is to honor the three scholarship recipients and to inspire them in their quest to pursue a higher education. I guarantee it will be an evening that will inspire you as well. Our Keynote Speaker this year will be Frank Somerville of KTVU Channel 2 News. We will present the recipients with an award; there will be door prizes, a raffle, a silent auction and a delicious meal served by Hs. Lordships Restaurant. Tickets for the banquet are for sale on I’d personally be honored to have you graciously bless us with your presence. I hope to see you there. If you are not able to attend the banquet, we are accepting monetary donations as well on However, donations of any kind are welcome, school supplies, gift cards, etc. The address to mail non cash donations is 2626 Charleston Street, Oakland, CA 94602.
