BFO is excited to be hosting a scavenger hunt event with a charitable mission.
As you may know, we at BFO like to help our communities whenever we get the chance. You might also have heard that we plan to participate in the Hennepin Hundred later this year, which is a 100-mile relay race a team of Beefers will be taking on to benefit Cara, formally The Cara Program. We’re also pleased to announce that we’re having an additional charity event in September. This one’s a scavenger hunt, and it will also benefit the Cara organization.

What is Cara?
Cara is an organization that helps people overcome poverty and turn their lives around with career development and job placement services in the Chicagoland area. According to their website, the organization “prepares and inspires motivated individuals to break the cycles of homelessness and poverty, transform their lives, strengthen our communities, and forge paths to real and lasting success.” You can read more about Cara, its mission, and ways to help the cause here.
