Black History Month “Cruise By” Scavenger Hunt
On Saturday, February 27th Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Incorporated will be hosting a “Cruise by” Scavenger Hunt to close out Black History Month. This event is designed to raise money for the organization’s annual Scholarship program that benefits local students heading to college.
“Cruise by”? Unlike traditional Scavenger Hunts this event will leverage a mobile app to optimize social distancing while providing a fun and interactive activity that challenges your knowledge, offers surprises and highlights the contributions made over the years to make our community as great as it is.
This scavenger hunt emphasizes a few of the many contributions made by our African American brothers and sisters. Starting and finishing at Notre Dame Federal Credit Union downtown, participants will explore 5 locations, gaining the information to race to be the first to successfully complete the hunt. At each location sponsor companies will have games, competitions, activities and prizes to add to the excitement and fun. Using geolocation technology all information is automatically sent to your phone when you are near the location making it possible to enjoy the fun at a level of comfort of you and your family’s choosing. https://www.projectimpactsouthbend.org/bhmparticipant.html
To further personalize the experience the mobile app allows you to privately share your experience with your selected family and friends. Not only will you discover things about the contributions of African Americans to the development of our community, but you’ll also discover hidden gems of businesses, organizations and resources you may never have otherwise found.
In addition to a fun afternoon of activities, you can enter the raffle to win $1,000 to top off a safe and enriching day for the family. All scavenger hunt participants will receive 2 FREE raffle tickets with their registration. A small $10 donation to the Scholarship Fund is all it takes to join the fun.
