The Qatar Financial Centre (QFC), one of the world’s leading and fastest-growing onshore business and financial centres, is to organise Qatar’s first charity treasure hunt ‘Hand in Hand Treasure Hunt’ at Aspire Dome, Aspire Zone on  June 28 from 4pm to 8pm.

The treasure hunt event is open to all members of the community, and families of all ages are invited to join, as they work in teams to follow clues in search of gifts hidden throughout Aspire Dome. Participants will also have the chance to leave their handprint on a communal white board to signify the endless possibilities that result from working hand in hand. Tickets can be purchased from any Virgin Megastore branch or from their website, and all ticket proceeds will contribute toward purchasing schools supplies and gifts for children at the Qatar Orphan Foundation ‘Dreama’.

The initiative comes as a continuation of the wonderful spirit of giving fostered throughout the holy month of Ramadan, and encourages all members of the community to come together to engage in an entertaining treasure hunt that serves a great cause. The ‘Hand in Hand’ initiative comes as part of QFC’s CSR and Social Investment strategy ‘United for Good’, which focuses on two main pillars, youth & education and community development. ‘Hand in Hand’ is a partnership between the Qatar Financial Centre, Qatar International Court and Dispute Resolution Centre, Qatar Finance and Business Academy, Aspire Zone, Adventure Rooms, Build-a-Bear Workshop and Virgin Megastores.

Sarah Al Dorani, Acting Chief Marketing & Corporate Communications Officer, QFC Authority, stated: “The QFC’s Ramadan initiatives encourage us all to stand together as one family and one community, and this spirit motivates us as individuals and as a society.” Al-Dorani continued: “We are excited and honoured to organise this inspirational treasure hunt initiative, which will bring us together as a community, and encourage us all to contribute to the welfare of our society while spending a joyous time with our family and friends”.

The Qatar Financial Centre Corporate Social Responsibility and Social Investment strategy underscores its commitment to its ethical, social and environmental responsibilities. One of the CSR’s main pillars at QFC is community development that entails focusing on the inclusion of all members of society. QFC’s CSR and social investment strategy also focuses on youth and education to help build a new generation of leaders.
