ELIZABETHTOWN - Elizabethtown Community Hospital's Scavenger Hunt fundraiser is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 2, where teams will compete in an afternoon of fun, games, and food.
The scavenger hunt has been held three times since 2006, featuring new variations each year.
"We feel we've complicated it a lot in previous years," said event organizer David Scaglione. "This year it's going to be a little bit simpler."
Doug Spilling remembered participating in the first year of the annual event.
"I did not know a lot of people in Elizabethtown before the scavenger hunt," he said, "but there is something about taking pictures in a bathtub with your teammates that creates a bond."
This year's event begins at 12:30 p.m. with registration and gathering of teams. Teams of four will race to complete two scavenger hunt phases that will take them to locations in Elizabethtown, New Russia, Lewis, Westport, and Keene. Teams will need one vehicle and one digital camera to successfully compete in the Scavenger Hunt.
An intermission between the two phases will feature drinks and hors d'oeurves. An award ceremony will follow and conclude at 5 p.m.
Participation is $50 per person; $200 for a four-person team. As many as 10 teams may participate. Proceeds will benefit the ECH Auxiliary fund.
To register a team, contact Diane Bouchard at 963-4510 or 873-9176 for further information. Those wishing to join a team will receive assistance forming one.
