#EXPLOREIRVING is a city-wide scavenger hunt that benefits local nonprofit organizations. Teams solve clues that direct them to local company locations where they learn about the company and about a nonprofit organization the company supports—all in a friendly atmosphere of good-natured and spirited competition.
Prizes are awarded to the first team to reach the final destination.
#EXPLOREIRVING not only raises funds but builds a community of advocates and raises awareness of Irving's civic and corporate achievements, nonprofit resources, businesses and volunteer opportunities.

- Greater Irving-Las Colinas Chamber of Commerce
- Irving Hispanic Chamber of Commerce
- DFW Humane Society
- Family Promise of Irving
