HWA Scavenger Hunt!

HWA employees were divided into teams of 4 and sent out on the Country Club Plaza for a Scavenger Hunt Friday, April 9th. Teams had to find actual items and bring them back to the office or take photos of their finds. The winning team received a gift card to a Plaza restaurant of their choice. Thanks to the nice weather the Scavenger Hunt was a huge success. And needless to say, the photo slideshow at the end was very entertaining!

And the winners were…Hosam, Amy, Roger and Michael!
