MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A tourism promoter for the City of Tucson made good on a friendly wager over the 2016 College World Series when he brought a chef from the southwest city to prepare a meal for the president and CEO of the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce.

Brent DeRaad and Executive Chef Ryan, recently appointed as the chef de Cuisine at Casino Del Sol’s flagship PY Steakhouse, prepared lunch for Brad Dean, president and CEO of the Myrtle Beach Chamber, and his Visit Myrtle Beach team at the Grand Strand Campus of Horry Georgetown Technical College Tuesday, according to a news release from the chamber.

The meal was part of a wager for the College World Series Finals between the University of Arizona Wildcats, based in Tucson, and the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers, who ended up winning the series.

As promised, Visit Tucson will also make a $1,000 donation to the Myrtle Beach Boys and Girls Club to promote youth sports in the community, the news release states.
