CORPUS CHRISTI - Ready, set, hunt! It's National Hot Dog Month and inspired by the @HiddenCash Twitter phenomenon, local Wienerschnitzel locations are holding their first-ever "Cash for a Cause" scavenger hunt.
Beginning July 4th and continuing throughout the month, hundreds of dollars in cash and Wienerschnitzel gift certificates will be hidden throughout the area. The prizes will range from $50 to $100 in cash, with a matching Wienerschnitzel gift certificate and a donation to one of three local charities: The Gulf Coast Humane Society, The Food Bank of Corpus Christi or The Junior Achievement of South Texas. Frequent clues for finding the prizes will be posted on Twitter.
To get in on the action, follow @CCderdog on Twitter and use the official "Cash for a Cause" hashtag (#cashforacause). Four $100 winning envelopes will be hidden this Friday, with two more prizes hidden each week throughout the month. The lucky "finders of the envelope" will simply share a photo of their prize and choose their preferred charity to receive the matching contribution, which will be donated in their name. Instructions will also be included in each envelope.
Prizes will be hidden not only in Corpus Christi, but also Portland, Rockport and Port Aransas.
