Doing Good - Samir Shah and Graham

It's a bit too easy to sit back, that is why I have a smile on my face when I see a press release with Samir Shah and Graham.  Talk is cheap, and once again we see that in the sphere of social justice and awareness, cheap is the last thing that Samir Shah could be accused of.

Here's the scoop from the source -

GRAHAM at Pre-Oscars dinner to support
David O. Russell and the Ghetto Film School
At a Pre-Oscars dinner honoring Academy Award-nominated writer-director, David O. Russell, GRAHAM presented a Chronofighter Target watch. The timepiece will be auctioned at a fundraiser for the Ghetto Film School taking place later this year.

Held at Mastro’s Steakhouse on February 23, 2016 in Beverly Hills, California, the evening was hosted by Seth Semilof of Haute Living alongside Dr. Gabriel Chiu and Christine Chiu. Dinner guests included Jamie Foxx, Dave Brown, Pras, Tyrese Gibson, Nick Jonas, and Barbara Broccoli among others.  Representing the Ghetto Film School were its LA Executive Director Stosh Mintek, head instructor Alvy Johnson and former student Chris Butler. 
David Owen Russell, known for Silver Linings Playbook (2012), American Hustle (2013) and Joy (2015), has been a longtime board member of the Ghetto Film School. Founded in New York in 2000, GFS has come to be regarded as one of the premier programs devoted to cultivating a new generation of storytellers from low-income, mainly minority neighborhoods. Based in the South Bronx, New York and MacArthur Park, Los Angeles, 650 students and alumni are annually engaged in the organization’s programming, always free of charge. Supporting art and cultural initiatives, GRAHAM was delighted to present O’Russell with a Chronofighter Target watch. The benefits of auctions will be forwarded to the Ghetto Film School.
