SRTC Foundation to Host Colquitt County Fundraiser

Posted on


On the evening of Saturday, July 29th, The Foundation at Southern Regional Technical College is thrilled to present Dueling Pianos: A Southern Soiree in the ballroom of the Colquitt County Arts Center. Featuring the wildly talented Andrews Brothers, Dueling Pianos is a fun-filled musical party. Astoundingly, the Andrews Brothers know well over 1500 songs. Each song that they play throughout the evening is requested by guests, making the audience a part of the show. All song requests will be in the form of donations to SRTC’s Foundation, which annually provides over $100,000 in scholarships to students in the seven counties that SRTC currently serves.

Guests are encouraged to bring cash, check, and credit or debit cards to ensure their favorite tunes are performed, and to buy raffle tickets for chances to win a variety of wonderful prizes. Those familiar with the Savannah Smiles piano bar in Savannah, Georgia will have an idea of why the Foundation’s board of trustees are so enthusiastic about bringing this high-energy live music event to Moultrie, Ga.

The first priority of Southern Regional Technical College’s Foundation is to support and enhance student learning through scholarships, college activities, and community involvement. Brittany McInvale, Director of Resource Development, is excited that this event will take place in Moultrie, saying, “Dueling Pianos will be the first Foundation event held Moultrie since our merger in 2015. We’re eager to give the people of Colquitt County and beyond this opportunity to celebrate the successes of SRTC Alumni, and to show their support for our current students. We are anticipating a fantastic night of fun, friends, and fundraising!”

Along with musical entertainment, the SRTC Foundation will be showcasing outstanding alumni from the community with a special presentation. The Foundation is currently seeking out candidates for the Distinguished Alumni Award which have excelled since they graduated from Southern Regional Technical College, or from the former Moultrie Technical or Southwest Regional Technical Colleges. Graduates from any year are eligible for the award. Members of the community may nominate a former SRTC student, and alumni may self-nominate as well become part of the SRTC Alumni Association for free by visitinghttp://southernregional.edu/alumni-network. All stories must be submitted by July 10th, 2017.

The soiree will begin at 6pm, and the entertainment will go on into the night until 11pm. Tickets include a southern-inspired supper, and at just $50 per person or $75 per couple, space should fill up quickly. (Unlimited beverage armbands will be available for purchase for just $10.) Tickets and sponsorships are available now. Please contact Brittany McInvale with the SRTC Foundation at (229) 227-2415 orbmcinvale@southernregional.edu for more information.
