Grown Up Easter Egg Hunt 2013

Thumbnail image for Prospect Park sign TroyThe Grown Up Easter Egg Hunt is returning to Troy's Prospect Park this Saturday, April 6. Organizer Danielle Sanzone says the goal this year is to have 3,000 eggs. From the blurbage:

We'll have donated chocolates, peeps, gift certificates (ranging from $5 to $50 at various local businesses) and alcohol vouchers - all found in cute, pastel plastic eggs around Troy's Prospect Park.

There will be a DJ and food/drink available. Raffle prizes will include tickets to a Red Sox game, a coffee basket, a month of date nights, and I'm working on a bacon basket....(ya know, ham, Easter - they kinda go together)

Alcohol vouchers can be redeemed at the Afterparty following the Egg Hunt at Minissale's - just around the corner from the park. We are not providing alcohol at the egg hunt, and redeemed prizes will be given with the expectation of putting the booze in your car/trunk.

The hunt is from 3:30-5 pm. It's $12 to take part. The hunt is a fundraiser for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and Crohn's & Colitis Foundation.
