Golf Tournament

The 16th annual K. Ray Bailey / A-B Tech Foundation Invitational Golf Classic will be held on Wednesday, June 5, 2019. The proceeds from this tournament benefit student support programs of the A-B Tech Foundation, including the K. Ray Bailey/A-B Tech Foundation Golf Classic Scholarship program.  Through this fund, we are able to distribute over 30 tournament scholarships annually, providing vital educational and professional opportunities that may have otherwise been out of reach for our students.
