For every $1 raised and donated to New York Cares, $6 goes back into the community! And that means all five burroughs.
Avi and I are throwing this scavenger hunt (think Olympics meets Amazing Race meets The Hunger Games - minus the manhunt) as a way to bring everyone together for a day full of fun & friends while raising some cash for a great cause!
The event on Saturday, May 12th, will start with a boozy brunch on our rooftop at 12pm (that's NOON for all you 1pm weekend risers). List of clues will be passed to teams at 12:30 along w/a "scavenger survival pack." The hunt begins promptly at 1pm.
Teams of four will traverse the Manhattan grid collecting pictures, videos, trinkets, and memories; meeting back at a secret endpoint at 6pm for score tallying. Gold, Silver, and Bronze "medals" will be issued along w/amazing prizes for all winning members.
We suggest donations of $20 per player to the cause; but of course, it's only suggested.
Strapped for cash? No worries. It's easy to sign up to be a New York Cares member and an even better way to give back! Just sign up online at newyorkcares.org and attend a free orientation to gain accesss to their database of hundreds of volunteer opportunities each week.
Enjoy spending time w/children? Sign up for the next "Fun Run" and relay race w/the handicapped. Plants are more your thing? Spend a Sunday morning in the park digging up weeds and chatting w/fellow New Yorkers. Be it the elderly, animals, teens, or homeless; whatever your passion, there is a charity in need of your time.
We hope to see everyone there on Saturday, May 12th. Please RSVP whichever way pleases you: here, Facebook, email, or text. (Formal invite to follow).
Rain date: May 19th.
Thank you all for being incredible.
And "let the games begin."
Avi & Ashly
