Seven teams participated in the 29th annual Scavenger Hunt for Variety, the children’s charity, on Saturday, Feb. 10, raising a total of $7,245.41.
Michelle Cote and Brent Wallin from the Westwind Pub waited during the Variety telethon until a time when donations could be doubled if they were made. This means the Scavenger Hunt actually raised $14,490.82.
The team that won for Most Correct Items was the Shoppers of Oz, collecting a total of 37 and three-quarters items. The second place team was the Happy Holidays from Shopper’s Drug Mart, with 37 and one-quarter items.
The Rocka Betty’s raised the most money, with $1860, and won the Irv Wilson Memorial Trophy.
The Most Sportsmanlike Team was “Andrea is Making us Do This.”
The event was a success, raising much more than the $5,407.35 of last year with two more teams.
