New College’s 42nd Clambake Raised over $500,000 For Our Students
On November 4, 2021, over 370 guests gathered on New College’s idyllic bayfront campus to celebrate achievements and honor those who make them possible during the New College Foundation’s 42nd Annual Scholarship Clambake. They enjoyed invigorating company, an inspired feast, and raised more funds for scholarships than ever before.
Clambake co-chairs Karin Gustafson and Priscilla and Jack Schlegel thanked the guests and said that it’s been a transformative time for New College Foundation.
“Despite the pandemic’s challenges, we marked the most successful fundraising year in our history. This magnanimous support came from you — New College’s dedicated alumni and our friends from the community. It also poured in from regional foundations, and from board leaders. That support is a ringing vote of confidence in New College’s mission and track record. More importantly, it empowers our future.” Jack reminded the guests that the important ingredient was them: “You define our success,” he said. “Each one of you shares our love of this extraordinary institution that started more than 60 years ago with a unique mission that has been carried through to this day.”
