The Hilton Head Home Builders Education Foundation raised nearly $8,000 at the HHA HBA Annual Oyster Roast on Thursday, February 27 at Bluffton Oyster Factory Park. Ten HBA member “tip jar match partners” committed to matching the tip jar at the beer truck up to $600. In combination with the annual 50/50 cash raffle at the HHA HBA Oyster Roast, the Education Foundation came away with the equivalent of two scholarships given in 2019.

Shoreline Construction and Development The 54th annual Carolina Classic Home & Garden Show was held March 13-15, 2020. The show is put on by the Building Industry Association of Central SC (BIA) and presented by Burgin Roofing. Over 200 exhibitors in all areas of home building, remodeling, decorating and landscaping filled three buildings plus outdoor areas of the SC State Fairgrounds.

The Home and Garden Show Chairman, Bill Earle of Great Southern Homes, and other Home Show Committee members walked the show after all of the displays were set up and gave an award to what they felt met the criteria for best display in each building, outdoor areas and for the overall show. Exhibitors in the Home & Garden Show put together some very impressive displays, so this is no easy task. Here are the winners of the 54th Home & Garden Show Booth Awards:
