April in Asheville

April in Asheville, the A-B Tech Foundation’s annual fundraising gala, was held from on April 4, 2013 at the Brumit Center for Culinary Arts and Hospitality on the College’s Asheville campus.  The event highlighted the skills of our award-winning A-B Tech Culinary Arts and Hospitality Department through a variety of interactive food stations located throughout the Culinary Arts and Hospitality’s facility.  Music from local musicians as well as a silent auction rounded out the evening’s festivities. 

Proceeds from this event support the success of the College’s students through the work of the Foundation and the Culinary Arts and Hospitality Department.   For tickets or more information on how to be involved in the 2014 gala, contact Susan Haldane, Special Events Coordinator, at 828-398-7567 or susanehaldane@abtech.edu.
