Grown-up egg hunt in Prospect Park

Prospect Park sign TroyThis could be fun: There's a grown-up Easter egg hunt this coming Saturday afternoon in Troy's Prospect Park. It's a benefit for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

The hunt is organized by Danielle Sanzone, who says she figured it'd be a fun reward for "parents and grown ups for dealing with another chaotic Easter weekend." The prizes are definitely big "kid" prizes:

People will find homemade candies from Krause's, Candy Kraft Candies, and Saratoga Sweets. Empire Wine is donating a couple dozen mini liquor bottles. And DeCrescente's is donating beer and non-alcoholic beverages (which obviously can't fit in the eggs but will still be part of the hunt). Along with the candy and alcohol, there will be gift certificates in the eggs too.

Danielle says all the prizes have been donated, so all the proceeds will go to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

The egg hunt starts at 1 pm. The entry fee is $7, and for another $2 you can have subs from Chubby's in Troy and pizza from Patricelli's. The hunt is 21 and over -- Danielle says IDs will be checked.

We've had a couple new donations too -
The Ruck in Troy is donating 12 gift certificates to be stuffed in the eggs which include free beer, free growlers, and free wings.
Uncle Sam's All American Chocolate donated a huge chocolate bunny (which will be raffled).
Spirits of Troy and Exit 9 donated some mini alcohol bottles for the hunt.
Mary Kay products have also been donated for the eggs.
And Carol's Pizza is donating a 24 cut pizza.

Look forward to seeing everyone there to have a good time while also helping LLS! :)

We have donated a $199.00 4 hour cleaning and are super excited to be supporting a great cause!!
