Quest Family Adventure
Learn. Play. Explore.
A Family FUNdraiser
Benefitting Carolina Raptor Center
This year has been a huge challenge for families. Between COVID lockdown and remote learning, many families have exhausted all avenues of entertainment.
Carolina Raptor Center to the rescue (and not just rescuing birds!). Start your summer right with a carefully curated box of activities from the Raptor Center designed to bust pandemic boredom and bring families together.
Some activities will be done together, others will be done at a virtual online event on June 19, 2021, at 5:00 p.m. EDT.
Your box of goodies may also contain dinner for the evening if you wish, catered by Best Impressions Caterers.
Best of all, part of your registration will benefit Carolina Raptor Center and may be tax deductible!
Since this FUNdraiser is virtual, you can invite your friends, cousins, grandparents, etc., from out of town to join you on June 19th for Quest Family Adventure!
Pay it FORWARD!
If you have no children at home, you can still support the Raptor Center and provide an opportunity for a great family to participate in the activities of Quest Family Adventure.
The Raptor Center is proud to partner with Crossroads Corporation to provide this experience (with your help) to families in the Grier Heights Community of Charlotte.
Buy a box for a family in the community, support the Raptor Center and Crossroads Corporation, AND get a tax deduction!
What to expect from your Adventure Box
Each Adventure Box will contain carefully curated activities appropriate for ages 4 and up. These activities come from the talented educators at Carolina Raptor Center, and from our environmental organization friends around the area. Take a look at just two of the activities you'll receive in your Adventure Box!
