A crowd of scavenger hunters embarked on a search for hidden cash Sunday at Hollenbeck Park after a mystery benefactor announced its last stop in Los Angeles.

The hunt began shortly after, when anonymous Twitter user @HiddenCash posted the tweet below:

Hollenbeck: 4 by palms, 2 by ivy, 2 in bushes, 1 by (not in!) trash. 9 total. Thank u LA! We’ll be back!

The generous user, who has 434,000 followers on Twitter, began donating cash through scavenger hunts in San Francisco on May 23.

The game made its way to Los Angeles Wednesday and wrapped up its visit at Hollenbeck Park on Sunday, where wads of cash were stuffed inside nine bottles of bubbles and stashed in bushes around the park.

LA: Are you ready to play with bubbles today???

Pastor Espinoza and his family found one of the bottles Sunday, and told KTLA News they would use it to “go buy some food.”

“We just paid rent and actually stayed without anything, so this is coming in handy,” Espinoza told KTLA’s reporters.
