Hunt for Hope Scavenger Hunt Set for February 26
Following clues, gathering serious or silly items, carrying out fun tasks, taking selfies or videos at sites all around Martin County, and supporting the important work of House of Hope are all part of the second annual Hunt for Hope event on Saturday, February 26.
Teams of two to five people will get their clues from an app at precisely 10 a.m. on the 26th, and the game will be on! Participants have just three hours to choose which thought-provoking or downright hilarious activities appeal to them and to accomplish the tasks before the app closes at one o’clock.
Prizes will be awarded at an outdoor party beginning at 1 p.m. at House of Hope’s Growing Farm in Palm City. There is a grand prize and a second place prize for the most points earned in the game, plus a prize for best team theme and for the most money raised through Hunt for Hope Crowdfunding.
“All of our participants last year said that this was one of the most entertaining fundraisers they’d ever been a part of,” said House of Hope CEO Rob Ranieri. “We welcome this chance to bring people together in a safe and fun way. The teams will get to know Martin County and also more about House of Hope and our mission to empower people to overcome hunger and hardship.”
Team registrations are being accepted now at hohmartin.org/huntforhope. The team fee of $200 includes lunch. Each team must be able to fit in one vehicle, and team members must be older than 11. Younger children are welcome to tag along and join in the fun.
Sponsorships for the event are still being accepted at the web site or by contacting House of Hope at 772-286-4673.
