Register Now For Charity Treasure Hunt07/17/2013 1:28 PM ET
(TRENTON, NJ) - The Second Annual Trenton Thunder Charities Treasure Hunt presented by First Choice Bank will be held on Saturday, August 10, giving adventurous Thunder fans the chance to participate in a real life treasure hunt, enjoy a ball game and raise much needed funds for charity.
The Treasure Hunt will send participating teams of two to four people on excursions throughout the area as they hunt for items that need to be collected (example: a Trenton Thunder hat), places that need to be visited (example: take a picture of a specific local landmark) and things that need to be done (example: take a photo with a firefighter). All the items on the "Treasure List" will have different point values, so teams must strategize as they choose where to go and what to focus on. The use of a vehicle and smartphone are essential to competing and must be supplied by the participants.
The Hunt 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.
There is a $1,000 cash prize for the team that tallies the most points during the hunt. All participants will receive a Trenton Thunder Treasure Hunt T-Shirt and a ticket to the August 10th game with picnic buffet.
Funds raised from the event will support the Trenton Thunder Charities 2013 Community Grant Program. In 2012, the Community Grant Program awarded $12,000 to eight local organizations. Applications may be downloaded from www.trentonthunder.com.
