Special Events

The College Advancement Department at A-B Tech offers three very special events each year. Each event supports students and programs at A-B Tech and offers varied and exciting opportunities for supporters to witness their contributions’ impact on the A-B Tech community. Supporting these events means that A-B tech can grow and provide further opportunities for our students and the Asheville Area communities.


Autumn in Asheville

The event highlights the amazing skills of our award-winning A-B Tech Culinary Arts and Hospitality students and faculty through a variety of interactive food stations located throughout the Brumit Center for Culinary Arts and Hospitality’s facility.

Golf Tournament

The annual K. Ray Bailey/A-B Tech Foundation Invitational Golf Classic is held each June. 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 can distribute over 30 tournament scholarships annually, providing vital educational and professional opportunities that may have otherwise been out of reach for our students.
