(While the rest of the world was freezing; the men of the January Jamboree made the Ramada Inn of Oakland Park the hottest place to be.)

My friends,

What did you think of the January Jamboree?

We had men attend from 27 different states and twelve different countries: Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Ecuador, England, Finland, France, Japan, Puerto Rico, Switzerland and Venezuela.

With your help we've raised over $10,000, for Senior Services at the South Florida Pride Center and Tuesday’s Angels, Inc. A Celebration of Friends has now raised over $174,000 for local charities in areas where we’ve held Celebrations and Jamborees.

We’ll be back 20 - 23 JULY 2017!!!

At the Sunday morning meeting during the Jamboree, it was agreed the Ramada Inn venue fit us well and that we should come back again in July.


All HOTEL reservations are on a first come/first serve basis.

  1. Go to our homepage, and register.
  2. Once you've registered, we will contact you within 48 hours with instructions on how to make your room reservations.

Registration fees are raised in a timely manner. Once you are sure you can attend an upcoming Celebration please go ahead and register.


SPONSORS & SUPPORTERS: We are limited on the number of vendors tables at the Ramada. If you wish to be a Sponsor in July, please let us know early.

The winner of the 2017 Mr. January Jamboree contest was Wayne Patterson, former president of the Palm Springs, CA Prime Timers and currently living in Central Florida. Wayne has done a terrific job promoting the Ideals of the ACOF and throughout his life has backed up his beliefs.

The winner of the Sexy Senior Speedo Contest was Dave from Salem MA.



The ACOF Board wishes to thank all those who generously assisted with our Scholarship Fund and all those who benefitted from it by volunteering their time and effort. The ACOF Scholarship Fund made it possible for those on limited income to attend the January Jamboree.

A CELEBRATION OF FRIENDS Scholarships are “need-based.” While we attempt to assist all who otherwise would be unable to attend our Celebrations, we can only help a few. We make every effort to assist as many men as possible.

The galleries are up and we’re on Facebook. If you haven't already, hit the "Like" button on our Facebook page!

If you have more Jamboree pictures you would love to see in the Galleries; please send them to

If you are looking for roommates, rides or questions about next year, please go to the forum/message board first on the website.

This is going to be a time to remember.

See you soon!

The Board,
A Celebration of Friends, Inc.
