Tickets to WGTC fundraiser sold out

Staff report

CARROLLTON — West Georgia Technical College announced that tickets to its fundraiser concert featuring Tracy Lawrence on Aug. 8 are sold out.

“We cannot thank our sponsors enough for their support of our foundation, our college and our students,” said West Georgia Technical College President Steve G. Daniel.

Tracy Lawrence is headlining the 14th annual Black Tie and Boots concert. Lawrence has become known in country music with songs like “Paint Me A Birmingham,” “Time Marches On,” “Alibis” and “Find Out Who Your Friends Are.”

Black Tie and Boots is the West Georgia Technical College Foundation’s biggest fundraiser of the year. It is held at the WGTC Murphy campus.

Despite the celebrity entertainment, Black Tie and Boots is not all about red carpets and country super stars. Proceeds from the event go toward student scholarships.

“The community embraces this event like no other,” said Daniel. “Black Tie and Boots is highly anticipated every year and we are proud to contribute to the fabric of our community.”
