The morning of the 2nd Annual Adult Easter Egg Hunt in Foxburg on April 4th was brisk indeed, but not enough to keep eager eggers from pursuing the thrill of the hunt for colorful eggs containing many prizes, including tickets for a Grand Prize drawing held at the end of the event.
Along with many local inhabitants, people from as far as Pittsburgh came to join in the fun while offering up support for the area non-profit organizations, Foxburg Free Library and Allegheny Center for the Arts (ARCA), as well as paying a visit to their favorite valley businesses after the passing of a long, arduous winter. Sharon Enslen from Prospect, PA stated, “Thank you so much for putting this on. I had a blast!” adding that, “This is the first I have hunted eggs since I was ten years old and I’ll be turning fifty two soon!”
Attendees found everything in their eggs from redeemable coupons to nine area businesses located in Foxburg and Emlenton, trinkets, chocolates and candies, and of course tickets for the Grand Prize Drawing which was valued at over $200. The contributions from participating businesses were so significant, that two additional drawings were added to “share the wealth” of prizes. Participants contributed a $3 “pay to play” which raised nearly $500 to be evenly dispersed between the Library and ARCA which gave them each a nice boost for their 2015 programs.
Many are already reveling in the excitement for next year’s hunt, anxious to join in the fun again, as they relive precious childhood memories and maybe even win some prizes along the way!
