Event Partners

Black Tie & Boots – West Georgia Technical College Foundation’s annual signature event – is our opportunity to raise funds for WGTC and to thank the countless members of our community who continue to show support for the college, our mission, and our students. Last year’s event raised more money than ever before, a net profit of $86,000!

This year we will be hosting our 20th Annual Black Tie & Boots event, featuring Mitchell Tenpenny, at the Callaway Conference Center in LaGrange, Georgia on Friday, September 16, 2022 at 6:00 pm. This is the first time we have held the event in LaGrange, and we are so excited to bring the party to our partners in our southern service area. Future Black Tie & Boots events will alternate between the Callaway Conference Center and the Murphy Conference Center in Waco, Georgia. Come dressed in your best and have a good time!

By investing in the WGTC Foundation, you are a valuable stakeholder in economic and workforce development right in your own community. Proceeds support students through gap funding, need-based scholarships, and general institutional needs.

Will you help us to reach our goal of $100,000 in 2022?
