Lake Erie College Storm Club holds clambake to raise funds for Storm athletic teams
The Lake Erie College Storm Club is celebrating with a clambake on Wednesday, August 25 at 6 p.m. on the grounds of the Victor Manor House, home of Lake Erie College President Michael T. Victor.
Chairman of the event, Jim Raimondo, vice president of Ancora Advisors, helped start the Storm Club in 2008 as a way to raise funds and build awareness for Lake Erie College Storm athletic teams. “The alumni, parent and community support to Storm athletics has been overwhelming, especially in the past few years,” said Raimondo. “We want to continue to foster that enthusiasm.”
The Victor Manor House is located at the George M. Humphrey Equestrian Center on Morley Road in Concord Twp. President Michael T. Victor and his wife, Craige, have revived many of the traditions of the 20,000-square foot presidential mansion, which was completely restored in 2007.
