To get in the spirit of the season, Paul Warner Rescue is hosting a Hallow Eves Haul scavenger hunt fundraiser event. Bobby Sinclair, a member of the Paris Charity Events team that put the hunt together, has worked with the animal welfare group around Halloween several times before.
“This is our first year doing the Hallow Eves Haul,” Sinclair said, “but we worked with them in the past on a murder mystery dinner. Obviously having 100 people in a room is not possible right now.”
The event is a Halloween scavenger hunt across Paris.
“Teams will need to have a car,” explained Sinclair. “We’ll meet at the RP Lumber parking lot October 24th, at 6 p.m., and I’ll give the teams a list of riddles.”
He said each riddle leads to a location in town, and each location is sponsored by a business. The first team to each location wins a prize and gets a clue toward the grand prize.
Teams need every riddle, but they are free to proceed to the sites in an order that suits the team. Sinclair said while the hunt is family friendly, it is oriented just as much toward groups of friends.
“Usually the end of the year is when their (Paul Warmer Rescue) money is running out and Craig and Hellie Smith, who run PWR are footing the bill to pay for vet bills, food and spaying and neutering,” said Sinclair. “Hellie is a wonderful woman, with a heart the size of the Grand Canyon. If someone sees a mangy dog on Main Street, Hellie’ll drive out there with her own car and take care of it.”
Sinclair added one of the reasons Paris Charity Events likes working with the rescue group is because of the effort Paul Warner Rescue puts forth each year on behalf of stray animals.
Registration is $25, cash or check, per carload, though a goodwill donation for more is appreciated. More information, and a pumpkin carving contest, is available on the Paris Charity Events Facebook page. Teams can register at the event, message PCE on Facebook, or call Sinclair at (217)822-2827. Early registration is highly appreciated.
