ATC Foundation to Host "The Giving Gala"

Event proceeds to benefit student scholarships

The Aiken Technical College Foundation will host The Giving Gala on Friday, October 6, at 6:30 p.m. at The Reserve Club at Woodside Plantation.

Tickets for The Giving Gala are $60 per person. Proceeds benefit student scholarships at ATC.

The theme for the evening is “Celebrating 40 Years of Friend and Fund Raising.” The ATC Foundation was formed in 1977 to acquire and manage resources to benefit the mission and goals of the College and to strengthen community relationships.

The event will feature an hour-long cocktail reception followed by a cash bar, heavy hors d’oeuvres, desserts, a silent auction and entertainment by the Transit Vocal Band. Transit is a four-member a cappella group – as their website describes them, “All Band, No Instruments.”

“I’ve seen them perform several times, and I was blown away by their sound,” said ATC Foundation Director Mary Commons. “You won’t believe the things they do with just their voices.”

Transit Vocal Band will perform songs from the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s and 2010s to celebrate the Foundation’s 40 years of fundraising crossing over five decades. The event venue will be divided into areas representing those eras.

Sponsors for The Giving Gala include Savannah River Nuclear Solutions (Presenting Sponsor); CB&I AREVA MOX Services (Entertainment Sponsor); Savannah River Remediation (Festive Fare Sponsor); SCE&G (Reception Sponsor); Economic Development Partnership (Dessert and Coffee Bar Sponsor); Aiken Standard (Media Sponsor); and Hampton Inn Aiken (Accommodations Sponsor). There are also five decades sponsors – Stewart and Associates (1970s); Aiken Regional Medical Centers (1980s); Security Federal Bank (1990s); Woodside Aiken Realty, Pat Cunning President (2000s); and Aiken Electric Cooperative (2010s).

The Giving Gala is a new event for the ATC Foundation, replacing “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner,” which ended a successful 10-year run in 2016.

“I think people will enjoy the ‘mix and mingle’ atmosphere of The Giving Gala. Rather than having a formal dinner, we want everyone to socialize as they enjoy the reception, music and silent auction,” Commons said.

Dress is cocktail attire.

The ATC Foundation’s fundraising activities support scholarships, professional development, facilities, educational equipment and materials, and program development and expansion at Aiken Technical College.

For more information or to purchase tickets, contact Commons at (803) 508-7413 or commons@atc.edu.
