Black Tie & Boots

Black Tie & Boots is the WGTC Foundation’s annual fundraising gala. Held on a summer evening at the beautiful WGTC Murphy Campus, the purpose of the event is to thank our donors, partners and friends, and celebrate a spirit of giving. Our sponsors are the backbone of the foundation, and this event offers enhanced sponsor recognition and benefits, as well as a terrific time.


Spirit of Giving Award

The Spirit of Giving Award is a highlight of the evening, offering the college and the community an opportunity to acknowledge and thank an outstanding individual, family, or business for their exceptional contributions. The 2017 Spirit of Giving Award winners were the Hightower Family, who have provided decades of service to the college and foundation.
