Aiken Technical College (ATC) and the ATC Foundation will host a Scholarship Fundraiser and 50th Anniversary Kick-off on Wednesday, September 1, 2021.

“The event proceeds directly benefit the student scholarship fund at Aiken Technical College,” said ATC Foundation Director Dr. Beth LaClair. “We are excited to bring this event to campus to showcase the physical property and to involve students in this wonderful occasion. Being on the campus is the perfect venue to kick-off the College’s 50th anniversary celebration year.”

The event will be 6-8 pm in the Center for Energy and Advanced Manufacturing facility on the campus of Aiken Technical College. The evening will include a reception with drinks, hors d’oeuvres, and entertainment by Brooke Lundy. There is a raffle with items including Caviar spark diamond hoop earrings from Floyd & Green, an Aiken staycation at Fairfield & Park, a custom South Carolina emblem fire pit crafted by ATC students and faculty, RecTeq RT-590 pellet grill with two bags of pellets, and a private dinner for eight at the Village Café.

“Tickets for general admission are $50.72 and $25.72 for alumni, faculty, staff, and retirees. The 72 cents is a way to commemorate the College’s founding in 1972 and kick-off to the College’s 50th anniversary in 2022,” said LaClair.
