Details

This fundraiser for our nonprofit organization may take you all over the Twin Cities to collect items for points, and may even drive you into the depths of your own closet/attic/basement for buried treasure. You will be asked to find and bring a number of objects as well as photos to our intrepid judges (who are open to bribes). Our slate of judges this year is particularly fond of chocolate and pastries.

  • Prizes: The winning team will receive four $25 gift certificates to a local Twin Cities restaurant or business
