On Wednesday, June 16, from 5-9 p.m. Indy Reads and the Mass Ave Merchants Association (MAMA) will be hosting the second annual Scavenge the Ave – Presented by NUVO. Scavenge the Ave. is an urban scavenger hunt to help support adult literacy programming and promote local business. Scavenge the Ave will begin at the Athenaeum auditorium at 6 p.m. where participants will receive clues to get them started on the hunt. These clues will lead scavengers through Mass Ave businesses in search of the answers to a word puzzle. Successful scavengers—participants who visit all the businesses, and complete the puzzle—will have a chance to win prizes and receive discounts from participating merchants. Scavenge the Ave is a social, family-friendly, and collaborative way to raise money for Indy Reads and help educate the public about the importance of literacy in our community.
