FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Corporate high-tech scavenger hunt raises money for Real Options for City Kids.
SAN FRANCISCO, CA – For the first time, Bay Area corporations competed head to head in a high-tech scavenger hunt throughout the San Francisco’s Presidio on Saturday, May 19th, 2007. Co-sponsored by Real Options for City Kids (ROCK), AngelPoints, Inc. and The Go Game, the Go for Good Corporate Urban Adventure Challenge raised funds for at-risk children in San Francisco’s Visitacion Valley.
Teams from Joie de Vivre Hospitality, Esurance, The Kimpton Group, Sports4Good, AngelPoints, Friends of Jamba Juice and ROCK competed in the first annual event with “Christian’s Gigals” of Joie de Vivre Hospitality coming out on top. Armed with a video-capable cell phone and a digital camera, teams were tasked with completing missions and riddles, some of which involved the children of ROCK, and take pictures as proof of their accomplishments. At the end of the day, voting took place based on the digital proofs (creativity counts) and the first ever Go for Good champion was declared.
