Annual Clambake

 

The Clambake is the premier fundraising and networking event of The American College Center for Military and Veterans Affairs.

Now in its Eighth year, The Clambake is transforming the lives of our active duty service members, guard, veterans, and their spouses by raising money for full scholarships for professional designations and degree programs offered by The American College of Financial Services.

This unforgettable event features thought-provoking, immediately-useful content, and a moving, patriotic award ceremony.

At the heart of the excitement beats the mission of the Center: to provide educational support and career opportunities to men and women who have honorably served in the Armed Forces. The Clambake's generous supporters have allowed more than a thousand active duty members, reservists, guard, veterans, and their spouses to receive full scholarships to programs offered by The American College in the past year. In 2022, the Center aims to award 400 scholarships to applicants.

Another key component of the event is The American College Soldier-Citizen Award ceremony, celebrating the sacrifice, service, and selflessness of its recipient with a patriotic salute.

Please join us for an inspiring evening as we support our mission to empower heroes and honor this year’s Soldier-Citizen Award recipient, General Lester L. Lyles, USAF (Ret).

 

Hosted by the American College Center for Military and Veterans Affairs, the Clambake is the premier fundraiser and networking event garnering generous support that has allowed 1000+ deserving veterans, active-duty members, and their spouses to receive full scholarships to programs offered by The College. Our current goal this year is to fund 400 deserving veterans, active-duty members, and their spouses to receive full scholarships.

The Clambake will feature a keynote address delivered by Brandon Carter, Chairman and President, USAA Life Insurance Company, and will be emceed by James J. Meehan, MSM, Chief Visionary & Co-Managing Partner of 1847Financial and former Chairman of the Board at The American College of Financial Services.
