TIFTON, GA (WALB) - Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College announced Thursday the Mike Snider String Band will perform at the college's Evening for ABAC.

Here is the full press release from Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College

The Mike Snider String Band will be the featured performer at an Evening for ABAC as a part of the Celebrate ABAC festivities at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College on March 4. 

Formerly known as Dollars for ABAC Scholars, this event is the premier fundraiser for the ABAC Foundation for student scholarships at ABAC.

The Evening for ABAC event begins with a dinner at 6 p.m. followed by a 7:30 p.m. performance.  Both the dinner and entertainment will be held at the Georgia Museum of Agriculture, now operated by ABAC.

Snider is a national banjo champion who broke into the country music scene in the 1980s. He made hundreds of television appearances on The Nashville Network's "Nashville Now" and had a seven-year stint on the television favorite, "Hee Haw".

He entertained crowds in Nashville, Tenn., at the Opryland theme park and his popularity garnered him membership into the Grand Ole Opry in 1990.

Tickets for the Evening for ABAC are $75 per person or $1,250 for a reserved table.  Tax advantages for reserved tables and sponsors are available.  Concert only tickets are available for $30 each.

Tickets can be ordered online at www.abac.edu/celebrate/, via mail, or by calling the ABAC Foundation at (229) 391-4900.  The deadline to purchase tickets is Feb. 24.
