Described as a high-end scavenger hunt, this event featured luxury vehicles, a cast of celebrities and philanthropists.
All registered Car Rally Teams agreed to fundraise a minimum of $15,000 to qualify, and $25,000 to qualify and draft their celebrity navigator. Highest overall fundraising teams earned first pick during the celebrity draft! The teams were only limited to the number of seat belts available in their vehicle, plus a seat reserved for the drafted Celebrity Navigator.
