Road Rally

One the Charles Lea Center Foundation’s signature fundraising events for 36 years is “a scavenger hunt in a car” which leads carloads of participants through a mystery or puzzle with driving clues that take them around the community.

Tickets for our celebration dinner are $50 per person.
