The Buckeyes Rally to Support Staying Connected
Saturday, September 19th was a beautiful day and Sun City’s Buckeye Group took advantage of it to hold a Golf Cart Rally/Scavenger Hunt to support Staying Connected. 80 Buckeyes and Staying Connected Volunteers contributed a total of $2,350 to Staying Connected before they raced from starting points on either the north or south side.
Each competing golf cart was given a list of questions to answer and clues to use to find and take pictures of a myriad of things to score points within a one-hour time limit. Participants were encouraged to decorate their golf carts and themselves for extra points, and they didn’t disappoint! After the finish, the group gathered at Town Square, where they presented their check to representatives from Staying Connected.
Many thanks to the Buckeyes and all of the participants for a fun event, and their continued support for Staying Connected’s mission! To check out the fun, click on the following link. https://youtu.be/SU150y47Oek
