On April 22, 2023, team members from CBS and PARIC participated in the Bright Ideas 5k Race in beautiful Cypress Gardens in Moncks Corner, South Carolina.

This unique all terrain race raises money to directly benefit local teachers through the Berkeley Electric Bright Ideas educational grant program. This year, the event awarded over $35,000 to local Lowcountry teachers to support their innovative classroom projects that aren’t otherwise covered by their schools. 

CBS was proud to sponsor and participate in this very special event. “Our partners at Berkeley Electric do a fantastic job organizing this unique race and fundraising for an amazing group of local educators, said Gary Hobson, CBS Chairman and race participant. “It was a great experience and we were grateful to be a part of it.”
