This past weekend, Let’s Go Urban got the opportunity to help an amazing organization, Tulsa Advocates for the Protection of Children (TAPC), with a fundraiser to benefit children in foster care and their foster families. This organization provides a wide range of services to help ease the difficulty of children in foster care placement.
This exciting journey began when we received a random phone call one day this past Spring from Chris, TAPC Director and she expressed an interest in working with Let’s Go Urban. She exuded so much passion for what her organization did and we were immediately intrigued. After several meetings, we laid out the plans for a unique fundraising opportunity.3. The plan was simple: we would put together an ultra-fun scavenger hunt and they would reach out to their sponsors for funds. They would then throw a party and enjoy their hunt while we monitored the hunt to ensure the teams played fair.
Our owner, Stephanee, says, “From the moment I picked up my event shirt from TAPC to the end of the hunt at The Vault, excitement could be felt everywhere! We enjoyed watching the hunt unfold and TAPC even provided a unique way to raise extra funds while the hunt was taking place. Basically, teams could detour a mission but still earn the points, for $25 each detour or they could provide a roadblock by subtracting 100 points from their team of choice for $50 each roadblock. The teams were so competitive that TAPC ended up earning an extra $600 from the players. I especially loved experiencing the stories people brought back with them at the end of their hunt. I am forever grateful to have worked with such a selfless organization and I have met some amazing people.”
We echo Stephanee’s sentiments and are so thankful to have found a way to give back to our community. It was such an honor to work with TAPC and we look forward to helping them raise even more funds in 2019!

Hiya…We wanted to introduce ourselves to you and thank you for taking out the time to read our blog!
We are Let’s Go Urban and our (simple) MISSION is to bring people together for fun. We love exploring and giving people a unique way to see the world around them. We achieve this through our self-guided urban scavenger hunts. We currently offer regular hunts, custom parties, and corporate team building events for groups of any size. Our hunts are accessed on any internet connected smart phone and are available pretty much wherever you need them! We have done hunts in major cities, small towns, in malls, at lake houses, in neighborhoods, inside office buildings and in parks (this list keeps growing). One of the most common things we hear (besides we can’t wait to do this again) is “I’ve lived here my entire life and I never knew my town had so much cool stuff/businesses.”
We have experienced some amazing things in the last year of half of our journey and this blog is just our way of sharing those experiences with you. We would love to hear from you, especially if you have a unique story you want to share about your experience with Let’s Go Urban. We also invite you to follow us on IG (letsgourbanscavengerhunt) as we have so many beautiful pictures to share (plus we offer specials from time to time)!
Again, thanks so much for being a part of our experience. We look forward to helping you see the world in a new light!
