Candy, Prizes And Volunteers Needed For Upcoming April Egg Hunt At Community Center

Coming in just a few weeks, on April 7th at 10am, will be the very popular Spring Egg Hunt at Laurelhurst park for ages 12 and under.

And to make it as successful as past years, Cara Brown, the new Recreation Coordinator, is soliciting donations of candy to fill the eggs and and small items for the prize baskets. Cara also is looking for volunteers to help during the event.  Interested high School students will get volunteer credit.

Last year's hunt was a huge success thanks to the many volunteers who contributed candy and their own time in helping to organize and staff the event.  Over 200 eager kids filled their baskets with candy and small toys.

Cara told us that candy donations should be individually wrapped and fit in the plastic eggs.   Items for the prize baskets for ages 3 and under should not pose a choking hazard and for ages 4-10 could be such items as chocolate bunnies, sidewalk chalk, stuffed bunnies, any leftover birthday party prizes that people may have around the house such as bubbles, etc. 

Candy can be dropped off at the Community Center  Monday – Friday between 9-2pm by March 26th and prize items until a few days before the event.

Cara says "Thank you to those in the community who have helped this event be successful in the past.We cannot do it without you and appreciate your continued support!"

To sign up to volunteer and for more information contact Cara at 684-7529 or cara.brown@seattle.gov.
