(CONWAY, SC) - The Horry-Georgetown Technical College (HGTC) Foundation Board of Directors are pleased to announce that the 14th Annual Gala “California Wine Country” style sponsored by HTC will be held on Saturday, April 2, 2022, at the HGTC International Culinary Institute of Myrtle Beach. The community is invited to participate in the virtual silent auction for the gala to support the HGTC Foundation.

The Virtual Silent Auction will take place March 25 – April 11.  The virtual silent auction packages can be viewed on the HGTC Foundation website. Auction items will include Chef-Catered Dinner Parties, Salon & Day Spa Packages, Dining & Nightlife Attractions, Brewery Tours & Tasting Experiences, Musical Performances, Travel Packages, and more.

The Annual Gala is the major fundraising event for the year and includes entertainment, silent and live auction, a delicious six-course gourmet dinner prepared by HGTC professional chef instructors and students, and so much more. The event will raise funds to support the programs and scholarships for students attending HGTC. This annual event has proven to be a phenomenal success, with over $1 million being raised in the past 13 years.

“We are thrilled to be able to host the 14th Annual HGTC Foundation Gala in-person this year.  The Foundation is very fortunate to have the ongoing support of HTC and other local businesses,” said Mr. Neyle Wilson, HGTC Foundation President & CEO. “Over the past 13 years, the Annual Gala has raised over one million dollars.  The loyal support of our sponsors and faithfulness of our attendees are what makes this the best event of the year.”

The purpose of the HGTC Foundation is to raise funds to support the programs, services, and activities of HGTC, its students and employees, and to create and cultivate positive relationships between the College and the community.

“The Annual Gala event has been an extraordinary success for the College raising over one million dollars in the past 13 years for scholarships, student support, and numerous college projects,” said Dr. Marilyn Murphy Fore, HGTC President. “We are so pleased with the continued support of our Foundation President, Board of Directors, and the numerous business and industry partners in our community.”

The HGTC Foundation invites the community to become involved as the College continues to foster its reputation as a high-quality learning and teaching institution with a student-centered environment. The community can enhance this vision with financial support for scholarships, programs, facilities, or other needs; donation of equipment or technology; mentoring students; providing internships; and service on various academic or foundation advisory boards.
