Historic Charleston Trivia Hunt Benefits Children Battling Cancer

Proceeds of ticket sales will go to non-profit Camp Happy Days to help children battling cancer

Charleston, SC– Local Charleston businesses, Traveling Ink, GievBee Texting System and Palmetto Carriage Work have partnered together to start an exciting, ongoing fundraiser for South Carolina non-profit, Camp Happy Days. Charleston Trivia Hunt is a fun and informative way to learn more about Charleston during self-guided tours of downtown areas.

The Trivia Hunts combine the fun of a scavenger hunt, the challenge of trivia, and the flexibility of a self-guided walking tour of Charleston. Historic homes, churches, gardens, and more serve as the backdrop as hunters answer trivia questions that guide them from one stop to the next. Multiple choice trivia questions are sent directly to the hunter’s mobile phone. They then use GPS or a search engine to help direct them to the site of the next question.

Charleston based Camp Happy Days offers support to South Carolina children battling cancer and their families by providing free year-round programs and services. “We are excited to partner with these local Charleston businesses to give people a fun tour of Charleston while helping to spread awareness about our programs,” says Cindy Johnson, Executive Director of Camp Happy Days.

Every year, Camp Happy Days hosts their staple, annual summer camp where kids discover the power within themselves, as they share life-changing experience with kids just like them who are battling cancer. What cancer takes away, Camp Happy Days helps give back.

Visitors to The Holy City and locals looking to learn more about their beloved city can use Traveling Ink as a guide through Charleston. If you’re looking to take part in a traveling ink Trivia Hunt, text the word “EXPLORE” to the number (843) 940-8882 to sign up for a hunt right from your phone.
