HANAPEPE — Residents have until Monday to choose and answer six out of 10 questions in the first Historic Hanapepe Virtual Scavenger Hunt.
“The Virtual Hanapepe Scavenger Hunt is a game that our team and the Hanapepe Economic Alliance came up with to introduce the new Hanapepe.org website,” Jaxon Communications’ co-founder Taylor Young said.
“We thought this would be a fun and interactive way to get people to explore the website and learn more about the businesses in Hanapepe.”
The event was launched on Facebook and Instagram by the HEA, which formed in 1997 by a group of Hanapepe businesses and Jaxon Communications, a social-media company based on Kaua‘i.
While learning about the historic Hanapepe’s culture, Kaua‘i families can expect a fun and engaging activity for their ‘ohana to do together safely through their smartphones or computer devices, the organization said.
Marcie Millett, owner of Amaize Inc. Foods, is one of the prize vendors participating in this event.
“When I got asked if I wanted to participate as a vendor, I thought it was a creative and innovative way to connect with the community,” Millett said. “It’s an exciting way for people to experience the scavenger hunt online in the privacy of your own home.”
Young said five random winners will be selected and announced on Tuesday, Dec. 1.
Winners will receive various prize bundles from Hanapepe businesses such as Popo’s Cookies, Banana Patch Studio, Amaize Inc. Foods, Hashi’s Fine Art Gallery, Aloha Spice Company, David Parsons III, Ono Pop and Kolohi of Kekaha Kaua‘i Handmade Natural Soaps.
Young said the grand-prize winner will win a prize valued at $100, two winners will take home prizes valued at $50, while another two winners will receive prizes valued at $25.
