Capture the Flag is Taking Local Families on a Global Adventure
August 28 EDT
Travelnitch will be celebrating the end of summer with their Capture the Flag fundraiser—a trivia hunt designed to get families out exploring the world together. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., travelers will make their way through downtown Monson to answer trivia questions and capture flags from around the globe. Prizes will be awarded for the fastest travel time and best family photo, among others.
This nonprofit event has received generous support from companies big and small, including The Bay State Team, Silver Bell Farm, Savage and Richard Green Insurance. The Main Street Tavern food truck will be on site serving up snacks so families can enjoy a picnic in the park and all participants under 12 will walk away with a global goody bag.
Travelers can register online at travelnitch.org to compete for a variety of prizes, including an early bird giveaway for those who register by Aug. 26. One lucky family will walk away with the grand prize—a weekend getaway courtesy of the Doubletree by Hilton in Milford, a family 4-pack of tickets to the Southwick’s Zoo and an annual membership from AAA Northeast. Tickets can also be purchased on the day of the event at Veteran’s Field.
According to Amanda Renna, Travelnitch Founder & CEO, “This event is aimed at families, but that shouldn’t stop individuals from participating. We crafted global trivia that is both fun and challenging, even for the grownups. The goal is to get outside, have a great time and learn something new.”
All proceeds support the organization’s ongoing work to inspire kids through virtual and real-world travel.
