August 17th, 2009 · No Comments

The 4th annual Gumshoe 5K Walk (a PhinneyWood advertiser) is over and the winners have been announced for the neighborhood scavenger hunt. “Gumshoe Guy” Mike Veitenhans reports:

The Gumshoe grew from 250 participants last year to 400 this year and netted the Greenwood Senior Center over $4,000. Twenty-two people won $25 prizes in the MiniGumshoe contest drawings held at local businesses during the 10 days of the event and three won Fred Meyer gift cards in the Gumshoe grand prize drawing: Sam Wilk ($250), Alyssa Troiani ($150) and Marianne Rupp ($100). Tom Whyte III won the Gumshoe’s bonus Eatsy Street Game, taking home $225 in gift certificates to nine local eateries, and Paula Wittmann won the $149.95 Cecil B. deRedMill Cash Award for her video answer to the contest question, “What’s So Mysterious About Phinney/Greenwood?” For more information and to see Paula’s video, go to www.DoTheGumshoe.org.

Next year’s Gumshoe will be held August 6-15. The goal in 2010: 500 participants and $5,000!
