— The Buy-Local campaign of the York County Regional Chamber of Commerce is holding its first “Holiday Hunt”, a community scavenger hunt to raise awareness during the 2012 holiday season.

The hunt will be from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday.

The hunt begins with registration at Beef ‘O’ Brady’s in Baxter Village. The two hour “Holiday Hunt” will send residents to businesses in Fort Mill, Tega Cay and Rock Hill and require each team to complete an array of tasks. Following the hunt there will be an awards ceremony where the grand prize team and individual winners will be announced,

The goal of the event is to increase the awareness through social media and help increase the knowledge of local residents. In turn, they will have the tools to educate others regarding spending money within the county and in effect, keep our tax dollars local, which through the multiplier effect will improve the quality of life where we live.
