Wellspring Treasures

The Atlanta Clemson Club volunteered at Wellspring Treasures, a re-sale store. Members sorted donations, merchandised items and cleaned the store.  Proceeds from the store fund programs for Wellspring Living, which provides support to victims of commercial sexual exploitation and domestic sex trafficking.

Thank you to all of our fabulous volunteers!

Chastain Horse Park

Thank you to the hard working volunteers who came out to Chastain Horse Park on April 27th!  We were able to clean the arena and learn about this amazing hidden secret in Buckhead. Chastain Horse Park provides therapeutic riding lessons which contribute to the cognitive, physical and emotional well-being of people with disabilities. Chastain Horse Park relies on volunteers in order to operate 7 days/week, year-round. Thank you to the Club volunteers for putting in a few hours of sweat equity to help beautify Chastain Horse Park!

Networking w/Guest Speaker Patrick King

Unfortunately, we have to cancel tomorrow’s planned networking event. Our host location fell through due to unforeseen circumstances. If you were not an Atlanta Clemson Club member and paid for your attendance, please look out for your refund shortly.

We apologize for the late notice and the inconvenience.

We will plan to re-schedule this event in the coming weeks. Thank you for your patience and please reach out with any questions, comments or concerns.

Join us for our next networking group on Tuesday, April 16th with breakfast provided at 7:30am.  Our guest speaker will be former President and current Atlanta Çlemson Club Board Member, Patrick King, of Transformative Financial.

Patrick will be speaking about mastering the mindset of financial success.

Speaker Bio

Over the years, Patrick has worked at some of Atlanta’s most prestigious firms, helping CEOs, all-star athletes, Grammy-winning artists and hundreds of other folks from all walks of life align their finances with their ideal lives. He founded Transformative Financial as a way to bring a wealth management service that is normally reserved for the ultrawealthy to more people as well as to “walk the talk” when it comes to making changes for the better and living an ideal life.

His non-judgmental approach blends elements of behavioral finance with traditional analysis to help clients truly transform their financial lives. While planning for the future is important, Patrick believes it’s equally important to ensure that clients live a great life today.

When he’s not helping clients, he’s living a great life of his own that includes travel, photography and occasionally some queso dip.
