South Georgia Technical College is trying to help college more affordable.

Thursday's annual tech force luncheon raised money for textbooks, scholarships and new technology for the college's growing programs.

The luncheon included a silent auction.

School leaders pride themselves on being able to provide textbooks for all students, but they want to help even more.

"Our students do have needs and our programs do need state of the art equipment and by demonstrating this commitment of a financial incentive, the faculty and staff of the college are able to have a part in the foundation and know that they are a part of the success of our students," said SGTC President John Watford.

The Technical College System of Georgia is providing matching funds, so every dollar raised will be doubled. 

The goal is $150,000.
