Abramson's 20th Anniversary
This year is the 20th anniversary of the Abramson Scholarship Foundation, created in honor of Frederick Abramson, a Washington lawyer who passed away in '91. At a celebration at the Hamilton Live, we snapped founding member US District Court Judge Paul Friedman and his wife, Liz. Judge Friedman was also the Foundation's first president.
The Foundation gives financial support and mentoring to graduates of DC public high schools. Here's Foundation scholarship chair Sarah Gere, former Foundation president William Causey, and another former president, DC AG Irv Nathan.
US District Judge Emmet Sullivan is a board member. We snapped him with the Washington Post's Carol Leonnig and Judge Kathryn Oberly. Later, renowned mezzo-soprano Denyce Graves performed.
