MIAMI, FL – December 4, 2015 – (HISPANICIZE WIRE) –The zany Hispanicize Holiday Scavenger Hunt is returning to South Florida on Saturday, December 12th and judging by last year’s crazy hunt not even Santa may be safe!

Sponsored by Florida Blue and co-organized with BTL Network and Social Media Week Miami, the city-wide scavenger hunt will once again pit teams of entrepreneurs, influential bloggers, advertising agencies, PR agencies and journalists against each other for a hilariously hectic evening that will collect books and toys for ASPIRA of Florida.

The 2nd annual scavenger hunt will take place from 4 to 9 p.m. Each participant should bring a new book for children ages 9 to 14 or a $10 gift card as the suggested donation to benefit ASPIRA of Florida.

“This year’s hunt will be extremely fun and more challenging than last year,” said Manny Ruiz, founder and organizer of the Hispanicize Holiday Scavenger Hunt and Hispanicize 2016. “The key to winning is bringing teammates that are extremely outgoing, smart and competitive because everybody takes the hunt very seriously.” (See last year’s scavenger hunt recap video here:

The scavenger hunt will conclude at a secret location that will feature holiday cheer, light drinks and snacks. The winning team will receive a $200 gift card from Hispanicize and the coveted Hispanicize Holiday Scavenger Hunt

Trophy that is currently owned by the Balsera Ballers. The Balsera Ballers have already confirmed they will defend their title.

This is the second year in a row that Florida Blue and BTL partner with Hispanicize to support the health and well-being of the communities in South Florida.
