Freeze Tag Launches “Buffalo’s Most Amazing Race” Eventzee Scavenger Hunt With The Salvation Army

TUSTIN, CA, September 1, 2020 – Freeze Tag (OTC: FRZT), a leading creator of location-based mobile social games, launched a fundraiser project with The Salvation Army of Buffalo using the Eventzee scavenger hunt app. Utilizing Eventzee technology, “Buffalo’s Most Amazing Race” guided competitors throughout western New York in a safe, social distance adventure.

The annual event, which kicked off in late July, featured teams of two who competed from the safety of their cars in a scavenger hunt throughout Buffalo, NY. With a first-place prize of $1,000, contestants were eager to compete in the name of a good cause. Challenges within the app were based on art, history and exciting locations throughout the Buffalo area. 

“We were excited to help The Salvation Army take their annual fundraiser to the next level,” said Craig Holland, CEO of Freeze Tag. “With the help of Eventzee they were able to present a state of the art experience that was interactive, safe, and fun for the whole family.”

The city-wide amazing race is one of the Buffalo Salvation Army’s biggest fundraising events of the year, but due to COVID-19 health concerns, plans had to shift. So, the committee re-invented the event into a COVID safe, socially distanced scavenger hunt event the whole family could enjoy.  Eventzee was able to offer not only a safe alternative, but through the new Eventzee app players were able to compete in a number of different challenge types including photos, videos, GPS locations, and more. All funds raised from the event support programs and services of The Salvation Army in Buffalo NY, which are needed now more than ever.

“We were thrilled to discover the Eventzee app in early June,” said Laurie Krajna, Development Director of The Salvation Army WNY Region. “ It allowed us to re-invent our fundraiser, as opposed to canceling it.  Due to the coronavirus, the funds raised from this event were crucial to our keeping programs and services available to those in our community in need.  The post- event survey showed that our participants want us to keep this component in future races.  It was fun, easy to implement, and really added to the event experience.”

The partnership with The Salvation Army is part of the Eventzee marketing program which gives companies the opportunity to engage with their clients in new and exciting ways through gaming. Companies can increase brand loyalty and offer virtual marketing promotions, incentives and competitions for a day, a week or even many months. Eventzee is also a unique fundraising tool, which allows clients to sell access to their mobile scavenger hunts with ease.

Event: 2016 Brilliant Summer Outing

Event Breakdown and Testimonial:

Brilliant™ used the Eventzee app as part of the firm’s 2016 Summer Outing for its internal team members. 60 individuals participated in a Scavenger Hunt around the streets of downtown Chicago, Illinois. We used the app to outline various historical and popular Chicago attractions to take teams around the city in a great team-building and fun-filled event.

The participants were extremely engaged with the features of the app. Everyone loved sending in their photos and checking on the leaderboard to see who was in first place. Our end location was on the rooftop of the acclaimed Lyric Opera House, and it was exciting to see everyone race onto the rooftop in order to finish. Using the app was indeed the highlight of everyone’s day!

Without the easy-to-use functionality of the app, we would not have been able to pull off our event with such success. Everyone has been talking about our Scavenger Hunt experience—and will be for years to come.

Thank you for providing us with such a fun, easy and innovative tool for our Summer Outing.

– Laurie Canning, Marketing Director | Brilliant

Reaching Your Audience- How to set up your scavenger hunt and get people to play

Scavenger hunts have always been a fun way to interact with others and support camaraderie, but we’ve moved past the limitations of pen and paper. Eventzee takes scavenger hunts to a whole new level by supporting worldwide events and new ways to interact with players. While Eventzee makes it easy to host your own scavenger hunt, it’s up to YOU to make it memorable. So if you’re considering putting on your own, here’s a few tips to get you started.

Eventzee makes hosting scavenger hunts easy- but that’s not to say there’s no prep work involved. When hosting an Eventzee event it’s important to keep your players informed and updated on how to play. Whether you’re hosting a get-together with your family or setting up a training session for your staff retreat, the more prep work the better.

Hunt Set-Up

Once you’ve been granted Admin access and created your event, Eventzee makes it easy to schedule clues ahead of time to go live at any point. It’s important to create and input your clues beforehand so you have a chance to make sure everything is ready the day of. There’s nothing worse than trying to juggle a dozen different duties on the day of an event, so don’t be afraid to let Eventzee go on autopilot a bit.

Download The App

Be sure to have everyone involved in the hunt download Eventzee to their smartphones. The free app can be found in the App store for iOS devices and the Google Play store for Androids. It’s best to have players download the app beforehand so they can sign up and not have to wait on the download on the day of the hunt. This will also be important as you share your event’s join code…

Join The Hunt

Once your players have downloaded the app they’ll need to create an account to play. They just need to open the app, sign-up for a free account, and create a username and password. Once they’ve signed in they just need to scan the QR code the admin has been given to join. This code can be found in the “QR CODES” section of the admin home page. Again, these are all things we suggest having players do in preparation of your event.

CLICK HERE for the template for the Join Code Flyer.
