Easter Bunny helped raise money

Sooke Food Bank is the recipient of the generosity of Easter egg hunters

SEAPARC raised over $440 for the Sooke Food Bank plus filled nine laundry baskets of food at the Easter Eggstravaganza held on Saturday, Apr. 7 at the leisure centre.

Over 300 kids attended with over 500 adults (parents and grandparents).

The list of sponsors are:  Sooke Disposal who donated over 250 Easter Baskets for the kids and was our largest financial sponsor.

Other financial support was given by Royal Canadian Legion Branch 54 and Sooke Lions Club. The Prestige Hotel donated a one night stay and Adrenaline donated two zip line adventure tour passes.

Other businesses in Sooke generously donated chocolate eggs, and the fire truck delivered the Easter Bunny!

And the event would not be possible without the SEAPARC staff and volunteers.

They held two egg hunts, one for 0-4 years and one for 5+. There was also spring crafts, two bouncy castles and face painting.

 

We also had a jar of eggs where people could guess how many eggs. The # of eggs was 219  and the winners are:

1st Prize Cheryl Jackson -– One night stay at the Best Western Premier Prestige Ocean Front Hotel

2nd Prize – 2 Passes to Adrenaline Zipline Adventire Tours

3rd Prize – the jar of Easter eggs.
