Austin Adventure Hunt and Water Drive
Jun 10, 2017 @ 7:30 pm
Austin, TX (June 1st, 2017) – What does an adventure footwear brand, a fashionable and functional wallet company, and a minimalist watch company all have in common? They want you to win heaps of prizes while splashing some good on the world by donating water and food to the homeless. All this, in the form of BANGS Shoes, Thread Wallet and Arvo Watches Adventure Box Campaign.
Kicking off on June 10th in Austin, TX, the three brands will hide goody bags of winnings in six locations throughout the city, publishing clues on their social media accounts every 15 minutes leading participants along. After the the hunt – from around 7:30pm – they will hold a canned food drive and hang at Zilker Park where people are encouraged to bring gallon jugs or cases of water that will be donated to Caritas of Austin – a nonprofit providing a service continuum for those experiencing poverty. The first 30 people to donate will receive a free customized Threads wallet (and the priceless gratification of helping other people), and anyone 21+ who donates will be entered to win two invites to the Do512 Lounge in Austin to watch a private taping of a band. The prizes will be handed to them by the sisters behind BANGS Shoes, the guys from Arvo Watches and friends of Threads Wallets.
“Water is one of the most essential and necessary elements in human survival, one that often gets taken for granted but is always in need. We’re excited to help give back to those in need this summer through this campaign,” Aaron Neuenschwander, COO of Arvo said about the campaign’s decision to include a water drive.
A week later in Provo, UT, – 1,246 miles away – the fun will repeat with another scavenger hunt on June 17th. Further details will be released closer to the time.
