More about Trasures and Trivia of Pacifica:
The competition will be like the Amazing Race, only it's all local and you will discover things about Pacifica - history, the locations of long-gone historic sites and famous places - that you never knew while visiting many vibrant local businesses, both old and new.
The March 3 event is for a good cause. Proceeds will go toward the , our local award-winning theatre group; , a new non-profit that's stepping in where the Rob Schneider Foundation left off to keep music programs alive and strong in our schools; and the Pacifica Library Foundation, which helps secure the funding and volunteer support needed to keep our local libraries cutting-edge.
Participants will have a set amount of time to travel around town answering trivia questions and completing tasks at local spots, which are listed at the bottom of this article.
First place gets $100 in cash, the next two teams will score $75, and third and fourth place will get $25. There are also a bunch of other prizes, such as tickets to the San Francisco Exploratorium and the Berkeley Repertory Theatre.
You can sign up as an individual or as a team from now until March 3 by calling 650-359-7190 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The event costs $35 for a team of four or $10 for individuals.
