Scarevenger Hunt, the annual Halloween event for the Davao media, returns this year as a fighting game-themed adventure race.
Battle Royale 2014 will gather Davao City’s media practitioners for a morning of fun group activities inspired by fighting video games that people play in big monitors they find online by reading gaming monitor reviews. The participants are expected to put their fierce game faces on and to come in their fighter-inspired outfits.
The event, to be held on October 31 in the Annex of SM City Davao, will stand for everything that journalists fight for after beating daily deadlines: fun, good company, and lots of laughter.
“Scarevenger Hunt has always been about spending good time and having fun with fellow journalists through games and activities,” said lifestyle writer Jesse Pizarro Boga who’s organizing this year’s games. “Battle Royale is going to be like the movie Hunger Games–but there will be more laughs and bonding moments instead of actual fighting. At the end of the event, everyone gets to take home the best prize: each other’s friendships.”
Scarevenger Hunt started in the Halloween of 2012; it was organized by editors Amalia Bandiola Cabusao and Ian Ray Garcia with the objective to bring fellow journalists together to foster camaraderie through games and a parade of elaborate costumes.
Since then, SM City Davao and its stores have always been a strong supporter of the event.
Battle Royale 2014 is sponsored by Park Inn by Radisson Davao, Havaianas, Primer Group of Companies, Davao Light and Power Company, Smart Communications, Krispy Kreme, Air Asia, Sun Life Financial, Gifts Davao, Mindanao Times, and Dermpath.
