Hunt For Art
There are many hidden art treasures in Escondido to be found, and we will discover them All. The treasure hunt/scavenger hunt gives you clues to finding them. But just to be fair, we will all leave at the same time. You will be given your first clue Saturday evening at 4:00 PM online. Then the next one is at the next location.
Upon finding and arriving, you will find the next clue, and so on. Each week we will discover hidden treasures about Escondido art and the artist that make it. Each hunt will take somewhere between 1 to 5 hours depending on you and your team.
You may choose to find the clue, and then quickly move on to the next clue, or you may want to simply stay awhile and enjoy the art at that clue’s location and then move on to the next one. You may opt to stay and enjoy the venue (Your 1st drink is on me and the theater tickets are paid for as well.) Teamwork is encouraged although not mandatory. The object is to have fun discovering Escondido’s hidden art treasures.
You will receive the link to the first clue online, and after your spot is reserved. All the other clues will be found in one of the hidden treasures in Escondido. You can take part in as many hunts as you like. They all start Saturday evening at 4:00 PM online, where you will be given your first clue for the night.
A donation will be made in your name after you pay for your entry to the Southern Sudanese Community Center of San Diego. Thank you for your participation. Good luck and have fun!
Your ticket gives you admission to hidden art treasures, admission to a few of the locations like the theater, and a glass of wine (if you are 21 years old.) You will receive your 1st clue at the start of the event on Saturday night at 4:00 PM.

Free Pet Vaccines
National nonprofit Petco Love and Bissell Pet Foundation have teamed up for a National Pet Vaccination Month campaign called “Give Pets Their Best Shot.” It’s to encourage pet parents to keep their pets up to date on vaccinations to protect them from contagious and deadly diseases such as parvovirus, distemper and panleukopenia.
Petco Love is committing to help end life-threatening diseases in pets by providing 1 million free pet vaccines nationwide.
Rancho Coastal Humane Society (RCHS) submitted a grant to receive 300 vaccinations, which include
DAPPv for dogs and HCP for cats. A limited supply of rabies vaccinations will be available, along with Microchips.
The Give Pets Their Best Shot initiative makes crucial pet vaccines accessible to pet parents who may be experiencing financial challenges and assures that cost is not a barrier to protecting pets from preventable diseases.
Rancho Coastal Humane Society in partnership with FACE Foundation, North County Lifeline and Live Well San Diego are working together to put on the free community event, which is open to pet families throughout the county.
Thank you, North County Lifeline, for hosting this event at your Vista headquarters!
