Twenty teams participated in the Great Scituate Scavenger Hunt this year, each playing for a charity of their choice.

Hosted by “12 Women Care”, the group encouraged teams of four to complete numerous challenges throughout town, with 100 percent of proceeds going to the winning team’s charity of choice.

Each team must document their projects with digital cameras and upload them to Facebook.com, winning points for each challenge. The team with the most points wins.

SANDS Helps, Scituate Friends of Music, Feeding America, Scituate Food Pantry, and Sarah's Soliders were some of the charities with a chance to benefit from the competition. However the winning team, and defending champs, chose to donate to the “It takes a village…Friends of the Vitelli Family” fund.

All together, the teams raised $1,335 for the cause.

“It turns out that the three girls who played on the team used to work for Jennifer Vitelli through Scituate Recreation as lifeguards. This family is coping with significant medical needs with their children,” said Katina Bentley, a member of the foundation who helped run this year’s program.
