The STARmazing race is a scavenger hunt that takes place throughout downtown Boston where teams race to solve clues and raise money for the Starlight Starbright Children’s Foundation.

J.P. Licks’ at 352 Newbury Street will be part of the race with racers needing to come in and do a blind fold flavor tasting to guess a flavor. Every racer will receive a coupon good towards future treats at J.P. Licks.

"A scavenger hunt really puts the fun in fundraiser. We’re happy to have the opportunity to get involved and support the foundation in their mission to improve quality of life for children who are seriously ill," noted founder Vince Petryk.
