Morningside Ride - Sunday, September 10 2017
The Morningside Ride is a short Road Rally—a scavenger hunt in a car! But instead of bringing back stuff, your mission is to answer clues. The Ride starts at 8:00 and goes until 12:30.You begin at Olympia High School, where you're assigned a pre-determined route to follow from the high school to the Lucky Eagle Casino and Hotel. As you drive the route—it takes about an hour and a half—you answer a bunch of questions related to the sights you see along the way. When you're all done, the team with the most right answers wins! At the Lucky Eagle you’ll enjoy a delicious brunch, raffles, short program, and awards for the winning teams and best costumes. The Ride raises funds for Morningside’s programs for students with disabilities, preparing them for success after graduation. For more information and to register, go to www.morningsideservices.com/events or call 360-596-3539.
