“Un-Scavenger Hunt” Promises Fun For All

Westport’s 1st-ever “Un-Scavenger Hunt” may be the coolest, most fun fundraiser ever.

And I’m not just saying that because I helped write the clues.

Here’s the deal: On Saturday, April 24, you and your team will click on the free “Goosechase” app.

You’ll see tons of clues, covering Westport trivia, history, art, pop culture and more.

You answer by posting photos, videos, texts and GPS check-ins on the app. Bonus points are given for creativity, ingenuity and humor (costumes, props, songs, pets … you get the idea).

For example, if one of the clues directs you to the Compo Beach cannons, how cleverly can you pose there? It’s a great way to get to know Westport.

Are there prizes? Of course! Among the best: a pair of sunset cruises; a private tour and wine-and-cheese reception at Dragone Classic Motorcars with George Dragone; Broadway tickets and more.

There are separate prizes for students in grade 12 and below (including cash). And a special prize for the organization that registers the most teams.

The Un-Scavenger Hunt raises funds for CLASP. For nearly 40 years they’ve  provided care, support and inspiration to adults with autism and developmental disabilities.

You can join the hunt any time, all day on Saturday, April 24. It’s not a race!
