Tickets on sale July 8 for WGTC 'Black Tie & Boots'

The West Georgia Technical College Foundation’s most anticipated fundraising event, Black Tie & Boots, has a limited number of tickets available. 

Due to the confirmed number of corporate sponsorships, the number of tickets on sale to the public is very limited.

This year’s event, which will be Aug. 10 at the Murphy Campus, will feature the country duo Montgomery Gentry. The group is known for their hits “Something To Be Proud Of,” “If You Ever Stop Loving Me,” Lucky Man,” “Back When I Knew It All” and “Roll With Me.”

Past country artists who have performed at the annual concerts include Blake Shelton, Josh Turner, Gary Allen, and last year’s performer was Little Big Town.

While Black Tie & Boots is known for bringing the latest country stars to West Georgia, its impact on the community goes deeper than entertainment. Proceeds from the event go toward student scholarships, program improvements, facility upgrades and faculty development.

“The West Georgia Technical College Foundation is an essential part of our College,” said West Georgia Technical College President Dr. Skip Sullivan. “It is because of the Foundation and its support that we are able to make a difference in the lives of our students, faculty and staff and in our communities.”

Tickets go on sale to the public on July 8 at $125 per person or $950 per table. Tickets may be purchased with a credit card on the West Georgia Technical College website, www.westgatech.edu or call 678-664-0516.

West Georgia Technical College, with campuses in Carroll, Coweta, Douglas, Haralson and Troup counties and additional class sites in Heard and Meriwether counties, offers more than 115 associate degree, diploma and technical certificate programs of study. A new Coweta campus opens south of Newnan this fall.

A unit of the Technical College System of Georgia, West Georgia Tech is the third largest of the state’s 25 technical colleges and one of the fastest-growing two-year colleges in the nation.
