Gulf Shore Animal League to Host Scavenger Hunt


BRADENTON – Looking for a fun chance to build greater unity among your friends, co-workers or family, while also supporting one of Manatee County’s most unsung causes?

Consider fielding a team April 12 for the 8th Annual GSAL Scavenger Hunt, a fun-filled dash across Manatee County to raise money for the Gulf Shore Animal League (GSAL), Manatee’s TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) partner in No-Kill.

Teams of up to five people will participate in a Scavenger Hunt featuring more than 50 tasks that include hard-to-find items, physical challenges and photo challenges. Teams will also compete in a silly GSAL Olympics. More than 15 team prizes will be awarded during the event, which starts and ends at Palma Sola Park Pavilion, 7815 40th Ave. W., Bradenton.

“More FUN has definitely become the theme this year,” says Cheryl Wade, vice president of GSAL and the hunt’s organizer. “We want people to experience the joy of this event. It’s such a fun way to get to know your community.”

The day’s many competitions include Kitty Kat Karaoke, Most Creative Costumes, and Best Team Spirit. Prizes include $400 in cash, a mountain bicycle, gift certificates of all kinds, and more.

The fun begins at 10 a.m. and wraps up no later than 4 p.m. Registration is $75 per team ($90 after March 28), and includes a lunch provided by Mar Vista Restaurants. The day also features a GSAL Olympics and other fun park activities. All proceeds go to GSAL, which provides most of Manatee County’s TNR services and also nurses infant or ill cats and kittens outside of the public shelter environment.

Team registration forms are at www.gsalinc.org, at www.Facebook.com/GSALscavengerhunt, or by calling 941-747-2284. To reach Wade and others involved with the Scavenger Hunt, contact Christine Hawes at 941-780-3046 or chris@wordsthatworkfl.com.
