The heavy rains on May 15 caused the Sugar Land Heritage Foundation (SLHF) to reschedule its second annual Scavenger Hunt to June 12.

SLHF invites residents to join Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls and Fort Bend County Constable Pct. 4 Trever Nehls for the Sugar Land Scavenger History Hunt. It is a great opportunity to pull together a team of your business associates, friends, and family and brush up on your Sugar Land history. Get ready to “discover Sugar Land” in a whole new way.

Sterling McCall Automotive Group is the presenting sponsor of a unique fundraising event that will be held on Sunday, June 12, to benefit the Sugar Land Heritage Foundation. The Sugar Land Scavenger History Hunt combines history, competition and fun, as rival teams take to the road to follow clues leading them throughout the city to historical and iconic Sugar Land landmarks.

All the fun begins at 1 p.m., on June 12 when Sterling McCall Automotive Group invites teams and their supporters to gather at their Sterling McCall Nissan dealership for the start of the Scavenger History Hunt. Each team will receive a list of clues to solve within three hours. Teams must send a photo using their smart phone to a panel of judges as they solve each clue before dealership at 4:30 p.m. The team with the most points will make Sugar Land history. Their names and the name of their sponsor company will be displayed in the Sugar Land Heritage Museum, imprinted on a brick reclaimed from the historical Imperial refinery site.

As the Sugar Land Scavenger History Hunt wraps up, the After Hunt Party will kick off at 3:30 p.m., with appetizers, libations, and a raffle. Team sponsorships are available, starting at the $500 level, plus opportunities to be an Historical Marker Host. Those who can’t be on a team but want to join the party, there are tickets to the After Hunt Party for $35 each (children 12 and under, are free).
