San Diego, CA–Local nonprofit San Diego Oasis will host its inaugural “Team on a Trek” fundraiser on July 28 at Grossmont Center in La Mesa.
During the 4 to 7 p.m. event, teams of two to six individuals will participate in a series of fun challenges at various stations throughout Grossmont Center, including Elam’s Hallmark and Brand’s Overstock.
Teams are encouraged to dress in creative costumes or matching attire. The surprise challenges will be varied from silly to savvy and may include the activities such as line dancing, knowledge tests, poetry writing, and identifying technology scams
“We’re very excited to bring together individuals of all ages for an afternoon of fun and fundraising in support of the San Diego Oasis mission,” says Event Chair and San Diego Oasis Board Member, Tracey Stotz. “The challenge stations throughout Grossmont Center showcase some of the classes that San Diego Oasis offers. From challenges that may involve foreign language and poetry to dance and technology, ‘Team on a Trek’ will have something everyone will enjoy.”
At event check-in, each team will receive a passport to collect stamps when they complete a challenge. The stamps will then be exchanged for raffle tickets that will be drawn for various prizes. In addition to the exciting activities, participants will also enjoy live music by the Off The Hook Band and an array of free snacks. The afternoon event will culminate with fun awards, including “Best Dressed,” and “Best Team Name.”
“Whether it’s for a summer team retreat, a family outing, a double date, or even a first date, we encourage anyone and everyone to sign up to participate in the inaugural ‘Team on a Trek’ fundraiser to support San Diego Oasis’ mission and members. We’re thankful to all our volunteers and community partners for their support.”
