Our First Ever Scavenger Hunt!

Events & Adventures presents;
The VMC Foundation Scavenger Hunt

A creative and fun way to help raise funds for Santa Clara Valley Medical Center (SCVMC).

SCVMC is the largest and busiest hospital in the Silicon Valley region, and the only one that provides care to all, regardless of ability to pay. The VMC Foundation is the nonprofit organization that helps make it happen by raising donations from the community.

Come out and help us raise much needed dollars in a unique and creative way. All the while hanging out with friends and having a good time doing it.

Here’s the plan:
Prior to the event, you will create your team of 5. On Sunday, July 23rd we will meet at Rookies Sports Lodge Downtown, 99 S First St. San Jose at 1PM. With your team, we will go over the rules of the game, grab a pre-event cocktail and head out on a fun scavenger hunt! The hunt will last about 2 hours, and after we will reconvene for food, drinks, and prizes!

Now, what makes this scavenger hunt a unique volunteer opportunity is that all the participants will be fundraising while playing! The scavenger hunt has been created to earn points for items obtained. Every item secured in the scavenger hunt should be able to be used in the VMC Foundation’s silent auction. We will provide all the tools needed to procure items from local vendors such as gift cards, hotel stays, and priceless opportunities! Of course, we will also have fun challenges and questions along the way to score some extra points!

The team that finishes with the most points will get an awesome prize sponsored by Logitech! Drinks and snacks will be provided at the end of the hunt while the scores are being tallied.

A few things that will be helpful to bring:
– A car with a full tank (yes, you will have the option to travel during the hunt – it’s not necessary, but might just give you that extra edge. Just make sure you have room for your teammates!)
– A fully charged smart phone (trust me, you will want it – lots of points will be earned by using your phone!)
– A GPS unit
– A pen & notepad
– Running shoes (this is a competition!)

Start creating your teams now & don’t miss this fun event!

Grant from El Camino Healthcare District Brings Smiles to Sunnyvale


Thanks to a grant from El Camino Healthcare District, low-income patients in north county are able to receive top-notch dental care at the Valley Health Center Sunnyvale clinic. Over the past year, VHC Sunnyvale has served 874 dental patients, performing emergency, restorative, and maintenance dental procedures. 94% of the patients served are eligible for the Medi-Cal Dental Program.

A patient recently shared: “The services that I have received in the last year are absolutely above and beyond the ordinary. As a low-income senior I truly appreciate these exceptional services.”

El Camino Healthcare District has been a long-time supporter of dental services provided at VHC Sunnyvale, and we are very grateful! Click here to learn more about ECHD’s Community Benefit Plan for 2017.
