C*A*R*E* Chest’s Executive Kidnap is back, and in light of the event’s 21st year, we’re celebrating all things related to turning the Big 2-1! Wednesday, February 29th (Leap Day!) from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. local businessmen and women will be “kidnapped” and taken to a top secret location where they’ll have to reach out to friends, family and colleagues to garner donations, or ransom, as we like to call it, in order to re-gain their freedom. Participants enjoy fun food, cocktails, casino games and a whole lot more! Interested in being kidnapped? Contact Patti Meals at email@example.com or 829-2273 x 101. We hope to see you there!

How: “Kidnapees” will ask people they know for donations, or “ransom,” to earn their freedom while being held at our secret location in Reno.
