We’re celebrating the launch of our new website with a fun family event! Bundle up the family and join Cleveland East Side Moms on a photo scavenger hunt through the Van Aken District! The lovely ladies of Luster have generously volunteered their store as Ground Zero, so we’ll all meet there to start, but the hunt will take you all over the district, so please dress warmly! Participation in the hunt helps out our local community too! We’re asking all participants to contribute either a dry/canned good donation or a small monetary amount to Front Steps Housing and Services, an amazing non-profit with a mission to end the cycle of homelessness in Cleveland. We’re working with all the Van Aken District store owners as well as a few other local businesses to put together a really fun event for the whole family.

We’ve collected over $2500 in prizes – 5 prize packs worth over $500 each!  


The Rules:

1) To enter, participants must either donate $5 or provide a non-perishable food item to Front Steps Housing and Services.
2) The hunt will start at 3 PM and end at 4:30 PM. The prize drawing will be at 4:50 PM in the Van Aken District Market Hall.
3) All participants that find all the clues will be entered into the prize drawing. There will be 5 winners of the drawing. You must return your clue sheet to win!
4) If fewer than 5 people find all the clues, we will award the prizes by who found the most clues.
5) Each picture clue has a circle with a number on it
6) When you find the clue, put the corresponding sticker on your sheet covering the circle.
7) If there are stickers hidden with the clue, please take only one sticker.
8) The clues with a WHITE cirlcle and a GREEN star are all hidden in common areas of the Van Aken District. They can be anywhere in the Market Hall or outdoors around the district (but you will not have to cross Van Aken, Warrensville, or Farnsleigh!).
9) The clues with a RED circle and a WHITE star are all hidden within participating stores in the Van Aken District, so you must go into the stores to find them!
10) Bring your sheet (filled out and stickered!) back to Luster when you’re finished for some complimentary hot chocolate and a shot at the prizes! Have fun!
