Ormlite saving utc date

For ormlite sqlserver, When I try and save the date “2018-03-29 00:00:00” , it ends up in the database as “2018-03-28 23:00:00”, is there a way to save only the date portion and ignore time via ormlite?

Normally this is fine for for date and time but I only want the date part in this instance and rely on it when querying

You’d do this with c# by only assigning the Date property:
