Well the first annual Northshore Parent Easter Egg Hunt happened this past weekend and it was a wonderful success! Over seventy-five families came out to hunt Easter Eggs, make crafts, take pictures with the Easter Bunny, and nibble on some sweet treats. The weather was absolutely perfect and shady Paul Cordes park was a great backdrop for all the fun.
We weren’t just out to have a good time, however. We were also there to raise money for the non-profit Northshore Families Helping Families. Which we did! I am still calculating the receipts (accounting is not my favorite) but it looks like we raised over $750 dollars.
None of this fun and fundraising would have been possible without our generous sponsors and I’d like to take a minute to tell you about each of them:
