ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Community members gathered Friday evening for the annual roast and silent action at Albany Technical College.
Friends of Albany Convention and Visitors Bureau Board Chairman Bobby McKinney made jokes at his expense.
McKinney said he was honored to be the butt of jokes to support the college.
"Dr. Parker called and asked me if I would be willing to do it, and I can tell you that Albany Tech and the foundation and the good work they do, I would do anything that they ask," said McKinney.
The event raises money for the Albany Tech Foundation.
The Albany Tech Foundation Inc. hosts two major fundraisers each year. A Golf Tournament is held in the fall, and a Roast is held in the spring.
The funds raised through the events goes towards foundation and college programs and activities.
