Under a tent along the bayfront, 400 guests dined on New England fare and were treated to a spectacular sunset. President Pat Okker welcomed the crowd along with chairs Erin Christy, Doug Christy, and Charlene Heiser Wolff. Student speakers, Lu Paris and Fehmi Neffati spoke about the value of receiving scholarships toward their education. Rounding out the evening, Michael Klauber of Michael’s on East, led a boisterous paddle raise, which netted $194,000.  All monies raised benefit student scholarships. Clambake has been one of Sarasota’s most popular philanthropic events for more than four decades.
