Cars, Hunting, and True Stories

Provided by A Bunch of People Arts and Events

A Bunch of People Arts and Events (ABOP) is at it again! This time they are inviting everyone to join a fantastic Scavenger Hunt by Car or tell your True Story accompanied by music!

“Grab a friend, name your team, get in your car and find the answers to the clues! First Team to win gets $100”, shouted Suzanne Millaire from across the room.  Suzanne is the event lead.

While Harmony countered with “Grab a pen, or a keyboard! Tell us your True Story and we will put you on Stage to share it!

The Car Rally Scavenger Hunt event on July 29, 2023, starts at the North Dundas Business Centre (NDBC) in Winchester. Participants are expected to check in at 10:30 am at 457 Main St., Winchester. Participants will need to sign a liability waiver before they are given the list of items to hunt for starting at 11 am.  Proof of a successful hunt, for most items, is to be done by taking a selfie and presenting all the selfies to the evaluators before 2 pm back at the NDBC.  The hunt is focussed on the North and South Dundas areas.  Pre-Registration has already begun and will continue until July 24, 2023. To pre-register email:

“It’s so fun! Amanda and I have already tested it out to see how long it would take and how hard it is. We had such a blast and all profits go to local charities!”, Sue stated,

If cars and scavenger hunts are not your thing, ABOP has also put out the call for their TRUE STORIES show.  Set to take the stage at the Old Town Hall in Winchester, October 13 &14, 2023 this will be the 3rd year for this event.  These stories will fill an evening of entertainment and will feature the selected True Stories accompanied by live music. The brain child of Harmony Koiter, this evening is also directed by her. The Deadline to submit your TRUE STORY is August 4th, 2023. All stories should be sent to The chosen writers will be informed by noon on August 11, 2023.

Stories will be chosen based on:

  • Staying within the word count (700-1200 words)
  • Remaining true to the story-teller (non-fiction about the person)
  • Engaging the reader/audience
  • Revealing a climax or moment of revelation
  • Character development
  • Use of first person narrative

A Bunch of People Arts and Events’ philosophy is: What is better than having a good time? Knowing the profits from what you enjoyed are going to help the community! That is the Art of Giving! That is A Bunch of People Arts and Events. All ABOP profits go to House of Lazarus.
