              We’re going on a Scavenger Hunt!

Family oriented and adult categories of clues will lead participants around Rochester to find hidden gems, visit local businesses, and have a fun filled day of crazy tasks and good deeds.  Point system set up for photos, videos, and other “evidence” of tasks completed. The more you find, the more fun you have, the more points you get, the more chance of winning the title of Dream Factory Scavenger Hunt 2021 champion!

$10 per person or $40 per car load. Pre register HERE  Vehicle and camera required. Sponsorships and additional fundraising opportunities available. Prizes for the top family group, top adult group, and top fundraiser.

This event is perfect for the family who is ready to get out and do something fun and different, and the adults and college students looking for a fun outing with your “COVID bubble”. Activities and clues are COVID friendly, but participants will need to follow NY/CDC guidelines when not in your vehicle.

Events/COVID-19 Updates

The Dream Factory of  Rochester is thrilled to be fulfilling dreams again! In the month of April Reese will travel to Orlando, FL to visit The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Isabella will be receiving a baby grand piano and Ava will receive the finishing touches of her basement makeover.   We are not taking the fulfillment of dreams lightly. All dreams which had been put on hold are requiring a revote by our board, a family consultation with their physician, revised medical and liabilty documents and clear communication with the families in regards to COVID regulations. 

As we are opening up dreams again, we are also diving head first into COVID friendly fundraisers. Our online Facebook auction was successful, Spry Middle School and Victor Schools have each recently conducted fundraisers for our organization and, as you read above, we are hosting a one of a kind event in Rochester- A Scavenger Hunt!

If you have any questions regarding dreams, fundraisers, or volunteering, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at the contact information above.


The Dream Factory of Rochester was chartered in the fall of 1998 with our first dream being fulfilled in May 1999 when Autumn, a 7 year old girl from Brockport, NY living with spinal muscular atrophy, traveled to Orlando, Florida with her mother. Today we have fulfilled over 275 dreams in our community. We have sent many children to Central Florida, NYC, California, Arizona, and tropical islands. We have provided children with televisions, computers, pools, hot tubs, room makeovers, and shopping sprees. We have introduced children to sports celebrities, musicians, actresses, and creators of television shows. Their dreams are as varied as the children we meet and the challenges they face.

If you would like to learn more about our local chapter, nominate a child, host a fundraising event, or join us at our monthly meeting.
Typically at 7:00pm the 3rd Monday of each month via Zoom until circumstances allow in person meetings.
