Social Good Scavenger Hunt


Come join us for the Great San Francisco Charity Scavenger Hunt. It's set to be a unique puzzle-solving urban adventure that will help you view San Francisco in a new light. Teams of 2-6 will solve encrypted clues, travel together to hidden spots, participate in challenges, and find unique people, places and murals. Proceeds from this event will be donated to the St. Francis Homeless Challenge, which focuses housing initiatives for the homeless population of San Francisco.

Players can come with a team already organized or can sign up individually and be paired to a team at the event. Be sure to bring some water, a pencil and a fully charged camera/phone and be ready travel all around the Mission District searching for clues and challenge pit-stops!

Check in will start at 1:30pm at Southern Pacific Brewing Company. Look for the girl with the trophy and top hat. The official rules will be provided and the scavenger hunt start will start promptly 2pm. The team with the most points wins the Scavenger Hunt Trophy and all winning team members get a free entry into a future event :).
