Clambake has been New College of Florida’s major scholarship fundraiser—and one of Sarasota’s most popular philanthropic events—for more than four decades.

(June 7, 2021) New College of Florida will celebrate the 42nd anniversary of its annual Scholarship Clambake, hosted by the New College Foundation, on Thursday, November 4, 2021, at 6 p.m. The event will take place on the New College bayfront beside College Hall, 5800 Bay Shore Road in Sarasota. All ticket proceeds benefit student scholarships. Tickets start at $250, and sponsorships are available. For more information, please call 941-487-4800.

MaryAnne Young, executive director of the New College Foundation, stresses the pivotal role of New College’s scholarships. Young notes that scholarships are essential to attracting outstanding students from around the region, the nation, and the world and providing them with a truly exceptional liberal arts education.

“While New College is public, state funding covers only a portion of the cost of maintaining our status as a national leader in education, says Young. “Our scholarship program closes the gap, and it makes it all possible.”
