Hendo Hunt 2015 - Are You Ready?
Hendersonville, NC : The 2015 Hendo Hunt to test your knowledge of Hendersonville for a second year in a row.
The Great Hendo Hunt developed by Elevents a 501(c) 3 organization that uses its event planning and entertainment expertise to raise awareness and funds for other community agencies and nonprofits.
“The goal of the Hendo Hunt is fourfold: raise money from the $8 event fees for Team ECCO, Free REIN, Hendersonville Church of God and Friends of the Mill House; encourage Hendersonville residents to learn more about their downtown area; boost the Main Street economy and have a lot of fun for all involved” explained Graham Mew, Elevents Chairman and CEO of local consulting firm ASG Strategies Inc.
During the Hendo Hunt, players receive a Monopoly-style game board with downtown Main Street businesses occupying the spaces. Clues on the back of the game board will, once decoded, send players to various downtown spots, both challenging locals' knowledge and sending potential customers directly to small businesses.
The businesses hiding clues will give stamps or stickers to treasure hunters who've guessed correctly, and the goal of the game is to collect all the businesses' stamps along with finding every hidden letter. Once the player has gathered all of the letters, they then must decode the secret phrase. Players then submit the completed game card and are entered into the prize drawings. “Last year we had 100 players. We also had over $2000 worth of prizes awarded, this year we have over $3500 worth of prizes including a new laptop computer.”
“This year we have over 40 local companies who are participating as a vendor or sponsor. We’re very humbled and excited to see the support for the event. It shows the spirit of the community. We look forward to a great turnout on the day with participants coming from all over. Last year we even had folks from Florida come and play as they were visiting friends here.”
“We love to see high school teams compete against each other and local banks pitted against another local banks for bragging rights for example.” In addition the “Great Hendo Holmes” the bear character created by Elevents will be out on Halloween and also around town during the hunt on November 14th. Special prizes are awarded for those that get their photo taken with Hendo Holmes during the hunt.
