Speaker: Cobi Williams of the Grant Center for Real Estate and Economics at CCU

Our own Club Member Cobi Williams of the Grant Center for Real Estate and Economics at CCU spoke about the Center and a special day in Loris in celebration of Chicken Bog – The Loris Bog-Off Festival.

The Grant Center for Real Estate and Economics, in partnership with Coastal Carolina University’s E. Craig Wall Sr. College of Business Administration and established through a major gift from Tony and Carrie Grant, serves students and professionals engaged in all facets of real estate and economics and provides market analysis, study-based scholarships, networking opportunities, internships and technical study tours of international sites. The center provides an industry-focused, collaborative environment where students, faculty members, and the real estate industry can gain and share knowledge, information, and international real estate business experiences. It conducts and publishes research on real estate and economic trends and host a variety of related events, serving as a bridge between CCU and the community. The key mission is to support the education of its students to the highest levels of competence and professionalism and to broaden the economic base of the region, serving as a bridge between CCU and the wider community. 

The Loris Chamber of Commerce sponsors the Loris Bog-Off Festival each year on the third Saturday in October in downtown Loris.  The festival will feature a chicken bog cooking contest, two stages of entertainment, car show, arts and craft vendors, plenty of chicken bog and a whole lot of fun!. The festival began in 1980 as a chicken bog cooking contest and has evolved into the huge event it is today. Chicken bog generally consists of chicken, rice, sausage and spices of your choice; though over the years there have been many variations of this basic recipe.
