Chamber’s Non-Profit Council to host citywide Scavenger Hunt

369

Let the hunt begin – the Seek in the City Scavenger Hunt, that is. Come Saturday, June 9, teams of scavenger hunters – as many as 250 people in all – will be out scouring the city in search of clues, pictures, information or tokens. The Seek in the City Scavenger Hunt is a project of the Chamber’s Non-Profit Council, which is hoping to use the event as a fundraiser for participating organizations. Another goal is to promote business in the Delray Beach area – from the beach to US Highway 441. “We’re hoping people will explore the whole area and discover businesses they never knew existed and make new contacts,” says Kelly Rowland, co-chair of the Non-Profit Council and chair of the Seek in the City committee. “There will also be a chance for people to learn more about the history of the city.” Here’s how it will work: At 1 p.m., teams will gather at the Delray Beach Elks Lodge on Northeast Fourth Avenue and will be given a list of participating businesses. The teams will have three hours to visit as many of the businesses as they can and collect the requested items. The committee hopes to have as many as 50 teams of five members each take part in the hunt and more than 100 businesses as stops. Following the search, teams will be gathering at Boston’s on the Beach at 6 p.m. for an after-party. “It’s going to be a fun event,” Rowland said. “We’re all really excited about it.” The cost is $50 for a team of five or $15 for individuals. In addition to seeking businesses to serve as clue stops, the committee is looking for event sponsors.
