DreamWrights Opens Registration for Dream Derby Road Rally; Deadline 10/21
Registration for DreamWright's second annual Dream Derby is now open for adults and children of all ages who wish to participate in a city-wide scavenger hunt to benefit DreamWright's programming on Saturday, Oct. 26 from 1-4:30 p.m. in York. The deadline for registration is Oct. 21.
During the second annual Dream Derby, teams of four will be provided with clues to find specified locations throughout York county. At each location, the teams will be met with a creative and unusual mental or physical challenge that they must complete before receiving the clue to find the next location. Teams collect points along the way and are eligible for prizes.
"The Dream Derby is an exciting race that is open to all ages and to anyone who is interested in supporting the educational programs and theatre experiences DreamWrights provides for the community throughout the year," said Ann Davis, executive director of DreamWrights. "This fundraising event ensures that this 16-year-old nonprofit can continue to offer services right here in York County."
In 2012, the inaugural DreamWrights Derby Day raised over $3,900 and had 40 participants ranging in age from 3 to 71 years old. This year, DreamWrights hopes to raise close to $5,000 and increase its participation to 60 participants or 15 teams.
Participating teams have the opportunity to win one of five awards: MOST GENEROUS: The team that raises the most money; FASTEST FLEET: The team that crosses the finish line first with all tasks completed; CRAZILY CREATIVE: The best costumed team; AGE RAGE (2): The team with the lowest total age of all team members and the team with the highest total age of all team members; and POINTS OF POWER: The team that gathers the most points by completing challenges throughout the race. Awardees are treated to free tickets to an upcoming DreamWrights production of their choice and all participants are greeted by a celebratory feast after the finish line.
Interested participants should visit www.dreamwrights.org to register or call 717-848-8623. There is a $30.00 registration fee for each participant and teams are encouraged to find family members, friends and businesses to sponsor them. During registration, all teams are also given a letter of the alphabet to represent their team and are invited to dress up in team gear representing that letter.
"This is a fun-filled day full of challenges and friendly competition for teams of families, friends, and supportive community members," adds Davis. "Participants will not be disappointed!"
