Shop MoVal Citywide Scavenger Hunt Begins!

Win $100! Discover your community! Participate in Moreno Valley’s first citywide Scavenger Hunt! The Scavenger Hunt begins Wednesday, September 26, 2012 and runs through October 17, 2012. This is a fun and FREE way to explore the City.

As part of the expansion of the Shop MoVal program, the Scavenger Hunt leads participants in a “hunt” throughout the city to learn more about Moreno Valley and the variety of organizations and businesses that provide the amenities, products and services they need. There are 30 possible locations to “hunt.” However, only 10 are required for participation in the $100 cash prize drawing. You will receive one Cash Prize Drawing entry for each 10 Scavenger Hunt items found, for up to 3 drawing entries if all 30 items are found. Ten participants in each Scavenger Hunt will win a $100 cash prize.

For information including rules, instructions, and the Scavenger Hunt list, visit the MoVal Rewards section of the Shop MoVal webpage at:
