As co-presidents of Friends of the Yolo Crisis Nursery, it’s no mystery that we respect this unique child abuse prevention program. Protecting children ages 0-5 from abuse or neglect, the nursery is funded solely by private dollars.

It also doesn’t require a detective to deduce one simple fact: In order to sustain such vital services, strong community partnerships must be solidified through generous giving. Without a doubt, your gifts are welcome throughout the year, but Child Abuse Prevention Month (April) offers a thrilling opportunity.

The Capital City Caper is a limousine scavenger hunt benefiting EMQ FamiliesFirst, Yolo Crisis Nursery’s host agency. Limousine teams of eight sleuths compete by solving challenging and fun clues and riddles, strategically placed around Sacramento. “Detectives” accumulate points along the way, while raising money for children and families in crisis.

The scavenger hunt is team-building at its best! Build morale with your staff, entertain your clients or just have fun with family and friends. Limos are well-stocked and the event concludes with a delicious buffet, a live auction and great prizes.

In past years, the caper has been a great success. Participants have said, “This was the most fun we have ever had at a fundraiser,” and “It was so fun to participate in an event that was different from the traditional black-tie gala!”

If you and seven of your friends, family or colleagues would like to join more than 300 costume-encouraged participants, mark your calendars for Sunday, April 22, from 2 to 8 p.m. beginning at The Memorial Auditorium, 1515 J St. in Sacramento. Various team sponsorship levels are available.

Help solve child abuse by supporting the preventive services of the Yolo Crisis Nursery. Reserve your spot today; email rdonaldson@helpkids.org or call (530) 747-3122.
