Thanksgiving has passed and the Junior League of Washington’s 53rd annual “A Capital Collection (ACC) of Holiday Shops” is quickly approaching. ACC, the League’s largest and oldest annual fundraiser, kicks off with the much-anticipated Meg Graham Scholarship Breakfast on Friday, December 2nd at 9:00 a.m. at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park Hotel. The Meg Graham Scholarship Breakfast provides attendees with a first look at the ACC shopping opportunities and proceeds from the breakfast benefit the Meg Graham Scholarship Fund, which provides a $10,000 college scholarship each year to a graduate of a D.C. public school or charter school who has demonstrated outstanding volunteerism.
Reverend Margaret M. Graham was a former president of the Association of Junior Leagues International, the rector at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Georgetown and a member of the JLW until her death in 2006. She dedicated her life to her family and to improving the lives of those most in need in her community. The Meg Graham Scholarship Fund was created in 1982 by the JLW to honor Graham’s commitment to service to the Washington, D.C. community.
