The 2nd Annual Scavenger Hunt 2017

WHAT: The Scavenger Hunt, sponsored by Lafayette Surgical Specialty Hospital, is a community-wide event to help raise money for United Way of Acadiana. Local companies are invited to participate in this fun-filled event by forming a team of employees to compete in the game. (It also makes for a great team-building exercise!) This isn’t the Scavenger Hunt from your childhood; it’s a big-time, sometimes silly, sometimes serious affair that is not to be missed!  For eight years, Lafayette Surgical Specialty Hospital has done an annual in-house Scavenger Hunt in which each department competes against the others in a race to see who can gather the most items on the list. After enormous success among the staff, they decided to open it to the public in 2015 and create lasting change in the community by donating proceeds to United Way of Acadiana.

Now we’re ready to repeat the fun had by everyone, but with one additional twist: Almost half the items on the list will have a Prince related theme! We won’t be asking you to find Prince memorabilia, but instead we will be requesting items that have a connection to his album titles, song lyrics, videos and other Prince trivia. Regardless of whether or not you were a fan of Prince, everyone will be able to participate, plus we’ll still have plenty of non-Prince items for you to find!

WHEN: The Scavenger Hunt list will be distributed via e-mail at 8 a.m. March 21, 2017. Items will be dropped off at Lafayette Surgical Specialty Hospital on Friday, March 24, 2017. That gives you three days and three nights to locate the items!

COST: $300 

SIGNUP DEADLINE: March 17, 2017

JUDGING: Each item on the list will be assigned a varying point value.
The team with the most points will be declared the winner.

WINNERS: March 28, 2017, we will pay a surprise visit to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place teams’ office to personally present them with their trophy. In addition, we will choose winners in a variety of smaller categories based upon individual items on the list. (You’ll find out what those are on the day the Hunt starts!) Once all winners have been notified, we will post a list online for everyone to see.
