In partnership with the Culinary Arts Advisory Committee, the Southern Crescent Technical College Foundation sponsors an annual Food and Wine Pairings Event on the Griffin Campus each spring. For six years the fundraiser has raised funds for scholarships for students in the Culinary Arts Program. The event has grown in size and has become one of the most popular events on the Griffin Campus. In addition to the many scholarships that have been funded from the proceeds of this event, twelve students have received a travel abroad scholarship to Kendal College in England. Approximately 100 individuals attend this popular event which is funded from corporate sponsorships and individual ticket sales.
For the past several years, the Southern Crescent Technical College Foundation has sponsored An Evening in Monte Carlo on the Flint River Campus in Thomaston in the spring.

The event is funded by corporate sponsorships and individual ticket sales.
