The Real Life Center will host the first annual Family Scavenger Hunt on Saturday, Oct. 8, a fundraiser that takes each team on an adventure throughout Peachtree City to collect items and complete given tasks in an effort to be crowned the winner of the event.
The event is fun for all ages, with each team member playing an important part in collecting points to lead their team to the winner’s lane. The Family Scavenger Hunt will begin at the Real Life Center with registration and instructions and will culminate at the Real Life Center with a celebration party, complete with a meal for all participants, prizes, drawings, and many activities, including ax throwing, yard games, and a few surprises. This event is the first of its kind for the Real Life Center.
“The timing of the event could not be more perfect as we have seen over a 50% increase since the start of the year in the number of clients coming into the Real Life Center for assistance. We are also excited for this to be our first fundraising
event that involves everyone, from the young in age to the young at heart”, said Greg Georgianni, Executive Director at the Real Life Center.
More than 1,300 families benefited from the services of the Real Life Center in 2021 with over 14,127 in-person visits, which includes our food pantry, market, job coaching, financial assistance, clothing closet, and Helping Hands Grant programs.
The First Annual Scavenger Hunt will raise funds so we can continue to serve those struggling in Fayette and Coweta counties and provide hope.
“While most of our pre-covid fundraising events were geared toward adults, this event is designed for all ages and is a unique way to have fun and show children that they can be involved in making a difference in the community,” said Jennifer Nolder, Development and Specials Programs Manager.
Registration for the event is open at www.reallifecenter.org. The first 20 teams to
register will receive a free event t-shirt. Participants can choose to participate with either a golf cart or a vehicle. There will be separate point categories for each mode of transportation. There is no limit to the number of people on each team, but everyone must fit in the same mode of transportation.
Tickets for the event are available for immediate purchase on our website at www.reallifecenter.org.
