Hartsville, S.C. - The Coker College Athletic Department and the Cobra Club held the 5th Annual Taste of Coker on October 28 with more than 500 people in attendance. The Taste of Coker brought together the Hartsville and Coker College communities for a night of food, fun and interactive entertainment.
More than 40 local chefs cooked various dishes for the participants to sample while they listened to music, watched the Coker Cheerleading and Dance teams perform and participated in athletic demonstrations from Coker’s 14 NCAA Division II athletic programs.
The Taste of Coker has become a model used by the NCAA as an example of a successful community engagement project. The Taste of Coker is a featured event on the NCAA Division II Community Engagement website, www.diicommunity.org.
The 2010 Taste was a big success in large part to the generous donations of the many corporate sponsors:
• Henderson’s ACE Hardware

• Prudential Segars Reality
• First Citizens Bank
• Agape Hospice
