Back by popular demand! Board the pirate ship for the Trenton Thunder Charities 2nd Annual Treasure Hunt presented by First Choice Bank. On Saturday, August 10, the ship will set sail again on the most unique, fun and competitive fundraising event that the Trenton Thunder Baseball team has ever hosted.
This popular event will send participants on excursions throughout Mercer, Burlington and Bucks Counties as they hunt for items on their Treasure Lists with a $1,000 cash prize for the team that tallies the most points.
Registration for the hunt will begin at ARM & HAMMER Park at 12:00 pm and participants will be given a map, a list of items and locations with corresponding point values then depart to begin hunting. The Treasure Lists will include items that need to be collected (example: a Trenton Thunder hat, a 1994 Penny) and places that need to be visited (example: take a picture of a specific local landmark). The event will conclude with a reception in the Picnic Area at ARM & HAMMER Park during the Trenton Thunder vs. Akron Aeros game that night at 7:05pm. The game will feature post-game fireworks presented by First Choice Bank.
Please note that the use of a vehicle and a smart phone are essential to competing in this event and must be provided by the participant.
Trenton Thunder Charities is currently seeking sponsors for this event. Your business can be featured on the Treasure List for as little as $100. Businesses should contact Trenton Thunder Charities Executive Director Patience Purdy at (609) 394-3300 ext. 104, or via email at email@example.com.
Funds raised from the event support the Trenton Thunder Charities 2013 Community Grant Program. In 2012, the Community Grant Program awarded $12,000 to eight local organizations and we look forward to more giving in 2013.
