Since its creation in 2006, parents of many of the kids who have participated in San Carlos Treasure Hunters over the past six years have asked for a parents’ version. In association with my partner in crime, Dr. Young of Young Orthodontics in San Carlos, we are pleased to offer the very first San Carlos Treasure Hunters…..for Parents. However, time is running out to register for one of the 25 team spots.
The Legendary J.P. Harlow and the Treasure of 1929
Do you have what it takes to solve the mystery of J.P. Harlow and his hidden treasure? Grab three other parents and get ready for a wild ride through San Carlos history as you compete against 24 other teams in being the first to locate the treasure chest.
Benefiting San Carlos Schools
All proceeds will benefit San Carlos schools through the San Carlos Education Foundation.
Teams. Teams are made up of four adults. Please note that one of the adults will be the designated driver. The designated driver may not consume any alcohol ahead of or during the hunt. Teams can be purchased for $500 per team through Spring Fling. With four team members, your cost is $125, per person. Two Platinum Teams will be up for live auction during spring fling. Those who have purchased a regular $500 team can have that $500 applied toward the purchase of one of the live auction Platinum Teams. * If you will not be attending Spring Fling on Saturday, please just let me know and I can help you reserve one of the 25 team spots ahead of time.
