1st Annual Hunt for Hope Raises Over $4,000 to Benefit NHRMC Foundation’s Pink Ribbon Project

Funds Donated To Provide Mammograms for Local Women in Need In Honor of National Cancer Prevention Month

In its first year, the Hunt for Hope Scavenger Hunt raised $4,250 to pay for local women’s cancer screenings through NHRMC Foundation’s Pink Ribbon Project.

3RD Pink Bow Tie LogoJeff Gordon Chevrolet partnered with local cancer non-profit Love is Bald to host Hunt for Hope – A Love is Bald Scavenger Hunt.  On Saturday, February 13th, twelve pre-registered teams took to the streets of Wilmington in a first of its kind scavenger hunt by car.

The teams had three hours to complete a random series of puzzles that took them to secret locations around Wilmington.  Bonus challenges were given throughout the day for opportunities to win extra points.  Hunt for Hope partnered with many local businesses that acted as “secret locations”  throughout the scavenger hunt, providing teams with surprises at every stop.  The after-party and awards ceremony was held at Halligan’s Public House on Masonboro Loop Road, and the top three placing teams walked away with tickets to concerts, local events and custom made medals.  Prizes were also given to the teams and individuals that won Best Dressed Competitor, Best Dressed Vehicle, Best Team Spirit, and Best Social Media Post.
