Will Rogers Junior High hosted Search the City on April 15. The fundraiser, held primarily at West Bend Green, consisted of food trucks, live music, auctions, a kids zone, and the town’s first online scavenger hunt.
This first-time event involved a lot of planning, and blood, sweat, and tears on the parts of several teachers and plenty of hard-working parents. The website and logo design were done by students in the NTC EAST program. The early stages of planning started one year ago. Amy Gordon of Melton Sales, WRJH’s Partner in Education, was a huge help in the process. For the past five years, Amy has hosted ZipperQ, so she is a veteran event coordinator. According to teacher Tracey Niblack, “Amy taught us how to fish.”
57 teams participated in the inaugural Search the City in the categories of Adult, Corporate, K-5th, and 6th – 12th.
There is not an official number on funds raised, but it’s in the $17k range, which will be a huge help for the school.
