Nearly 250 members of the CBA community gathered at Conover Pavilion in Deal last Friday night for the the annual CBA Scholarship Clambake, presented by the Alumni Association.
It was another wonderful start to the CBA school year as a great crowd of current & past parents, alumni and friends of the Academy enjoyed a fun night on the beach. The attendees enjoy lobsters, a raw bar, steak, and more provided by Rick Bott ’72 and his staff at MerriMakers.
As has been the tradition at the Clambake, the night included a gift-basket auction and a high-end silent auction. The prizes included weekend get-aways at beautiful bed and breakfasts and tropical locations. Other popular prizes were sporting event tickets, athlete and team memorabilia, golf outings, and fine wines, among others.
“Many thanks to all who attended for helping continue the financial support for the CBA Scholarship Fund,” said Paul Molzon ’72, chairman of the Clambake Committee. “A special ‘thank you’ to all the volunteers who helped make it such a successful event. We look forward to seeing you next year.”
The night benefits the Alumni Association’s scholarship fund. Each school year, the Alumni Association scholarships are awarded to incoming freshman whose families could not otherwise afford a CBA education. Alumni Association scholarships are full scholarships that are based on financial need, academics, community service and a commitment to others. Applicants interview with members of the Alumni Association Board of Trustees each winter for selection for the following school year.
