The Second Annual OctoberQuest benefiting United Way of Southeast Georgia is set for Saturday at The Clubhouse. Proceeds from the event will benefit the local United Way, which serves Bulloch, Candler, Emanuel, Evans, Jenkins and Tattnall counties.
"Our inaugural OctoberQuest was a huge success, and since its conclusion last year we've been planning and working hard to make Quest even better," said Bob Olliff, the executive director of United Way of Southeast Georgia. "Having the opportunity to work with The Clubhouse again and to make this an annual event has been very exciting."
OctoberQuest is relay-style competition in which teams of four compete in various activities like bowling, miniature golf, basketball, Skee-Ball and batting cages. OctoberQuest 2014 will include an activity involving The Clubhouse's new go-cart track, the Coca-Cola 125 Raceway. Teams also may purchase handicaps to better their overall scores.
"Last year's teams were very competitive, and we are looking forward to the excitement of this year," said Darin Van Tassell, event volunteer and owner of The Clubhouse. "Each of the 10 activities will give the teams chances to earn points, and the top 10 teams will then compete in a final bowl-off to determine the Overall Winner."
The grand prize includes a catered party for 30 in The Clubhouse's private, luxury bowling suite, The Skybox.
There will be activities and entertainment throughout the day including an event DJ, vendors, raffles, and an after party with live music.
United Way of Southeast Georgia is volunteer-driven group that aids agencies such as the American Red Cross, Boys and Girls Club of Bulloch County, Safe Haven, and many others which positively impact the lives of people in the surrounding communities.
