It is the time of the year for celebration. But instead of saving the joy just for your loved ones, why not take your friends and families to a fun charity event and spread the feeling around? A great day out is to be had at the second annual Charity Scavenge Challenge, which is now recruiting teams of four. For the entry fee of $500 per team, you will not only be guaranteed a fun time, but also be helping others, as all the proceeds will be donated to Operation Santa Claus, the fund-raising drive co-organised each Christmas by the South China Morning Post and Radio Television Hong Kong. David Simpson of Team Building Asia, co-organiser of the Scavenge Challenge, says that they hope to raise more than $25,000 this year, compared to $12,000 last year. 'This year we already have lots of interest. Last year there were 24 teams participating, and this year we will limit it to 50 teams,' he says. The route begins in Central. Teams gather at Dublin Jack, where each participant will receive a bag of souvenirs and a hunt bag, in which there will be clues as to what to search for and where to find it. Each team must take an i-Zone instant camera as they are required to take pictures at certain points. They then have to cross the harbour to the Kowloon side and return to Wan Chai's Delaney's bar, the finishing point. There are a number of prizes. The fastest team which returns with the most accurate findings will win a three-night cruise for all four members on SuperStar Leo. A helicopter trip over Hong Kong and lunch at The Peninsula lie in store for the first runners-up, while the second runners-up will get four super-class tickets to Macau on Turbo Cat. The Charity Scavenge Challenge will take place on December 7. Interested parties can register online at www.teambuildingasia.com . You can also visit this website for further details.
