The Clifford Antone Foundation Presents


2017 Cliffy Award Recipient: David Elliott

The recipient of this year's Cliffy Award for outstanding philanthropic legacy is no stranger to Help Clifford Help Kids. In fact, David Elliott has contributed to every single celebration since it started 17 years ago. 

Elliott was a life long and close friend of Clifford. They met at a young age in Port Arthur, Texas. Elliott has always been the biggest supporter of Help Clifford Help Kids. American YouthWorks is so grateful for the immense generosity David has shown the organization over the years. His support has enabled AYW to help so many young people pursue their education and realize their career goals. 

His contributions to the community are countless. He is an avid supporter of veteran groups including the Gary Sinise Foundation, Independence Fund, Independence Corps., Adopt a Soldier Platoon, Camp 4 Heroes, Operation Homefront and other organizations that support wounded and disabled veterans. 

You will be hard pressed to find someone as authentic and with as much integrity as David Elliott, which is why we are are honoring him with the 2017 Cliffy Award. Elliott will be recognized at the Help Clifford Help Kids Celebration on Wednesday, November 8, 2017,  at Austin City Limits Live at the Moody Theater.
