Scavenger hunt benefits Let There Be Mom in Upstate

Everyone loves a good scavenger hunt, right? It is even better when that hunt is for a great cause.

Let There Be Mom helps moms when the mom, or a child’s father, is diagnosed with a life threatening illness. The organization, which helps preserve the legacy of the the ailing parent, will hold its annual spring scavenger hunt April 16.

This year’s hunt features a game of bingo.

Bingo balls will be hidden in storefront windows along Main Street in Greenville. Armed with bingo cards, teams will have two hours to complete at least one card. Teams that finish before the two-hour time frame ends can stop by one of three stations to get another card. Let There Be Mom will enter each completed card in a drawing for prizes.

“Prizes include gift certificates from Hand & Stone Massage, The Cook’s Station, a USC baseball signed by coach Chad Holbrook, a stay at the Swamp Rabbit Inn and a Myrtle Beach getaway,” said Kipra Anderson, founder of Let There Be Mom. The event begins with an optional breakfast at 9 a.m. and breaks for lunch from noon – 12:30 p.m. After lunch, play a few games of traditional bingo and listen for the announcement of prize winners.

While this event would be terrific as a day out with friends or a fun double date, you can also enter as a family.

“This year’s hunt is a little easier for families since there are no riddles to solve,” Anderson said. “Kids just need to be able to identify numbers.’

So grab your family or a few of your closest friends and get ready for a day filled with fun. For more information or to register, go to Register by April 6 to ensure you receive a T-shirt — and before April 3 to avoid a $20 late fee.
