About The Hunt for Hope
Jeff Gordon Chevy’s Hunt for Hope ties relative themes of the automotive industry and racing with its commitment to make a positive impact and connection to the local Wilmington, NC and surrounding community. The event is a scavenger hunt by car in which participants are guided around the Port City to local businesses, completing a number of fun and entertaining challenges along the way. Teams have three hours to complete the circuit and collect as many points as they can before crossing the finish line. At the awards ceremony and after party, prizes are awarded for the top three placing teams, best team spirit, best team theme, and best social media post.
This year, the Hunt for Hope took place at Tavern on 17th across from the new Pointe 14 at Barclay movie theater with 22 participating teams of up to 5 members each, 6 pinpoint location sponsors, and a number of additional sponsors. UNCW film students, Noah Campagna & Nick Watson, captured the fun the day of the event – Check out the video here:
