SCAVENGER HONKY TONK HOP FOR CHARITY! Come help us raise money while visiting some of the hottest HONKY TONK's in Nashville. Here's how this will work:
We all begin at the first bar, Margaritaville, where you can enjoy some light food, register for the honky tonk hop, and pick up your drink tickets. Teams will get together and be handed clues they must solve along the way. Some answers will be inside the honky tonk. No two teams will have the same clues! The team with the most correct answers wins the race and is "crowned" the following day at the Business Membership Meeting.
If you want to SPONSOR A BAR for charity, just contact Karen McGaughey at firstname.lastname@example.org or Gail Goldstein 561-266-9016.
