Business Partners

Supporting Our Community

The BHSDG Business Partners include local and national businesses with an interest in Berkeley and an appreciation of Berkeley High School as the only public high school in our community. Berkeley businesses are an important part of the BHS community for both staff and students. The goal is to raise significant funds for the BHSDG.

Business Partners Luncheon

Since 2010 the Business Partners Luncheon has been an opportunity for local business people and friends of BHSDG to come together over lunch and raise funds for the Development Group. Each year features a guest speaker and superb food.

The 2020 Luncheon was to have featured Jennifer Doudna – BHS parent and UC professor – in conversation with favorite BHS science teacher, Glenn Wolkenfeld. The lunch was cancelled but Glenn recorded an interview with Jennifer which can be seen here.

The 2019 fundraising luncheon, held on Tuesday, March 19th, featured an on-stage conversation with Michael Lewis, best selling author, editor, columnist, documentary filmmaker and BHS parent in conversation with Claire Ferrari, of Ferrari Orthodontics and a BHS parent.

In 2018 the guest speaker was Daveed Diggs , Tony and Grammy winning actor/rapper/producer.
