Community shows generosity

Easter Egg Hunt at LocoLanding raises $4,219 for OSNS Child Development Centre

On Easter Monday, LocoLanding hosted the second annual Easter Egg Hunt. Not only was this an amazing event for the children, but a shining example of the very generous community we live in.

Over 11,000 plastic Easter eggs were stuffed with 25,000 pieces of chocolate. Friends travel from Atlanta, Ga. each year to help and we have over 75 more volunteers assist with stuffing and event day. A huge thank you to our teens at LocoLanding who donated their time — you make us so proud.

A special thank you to: MarketPlace IGA, Starbucks, Smith & Co., Penticton Lakeside Resort, GiantFM, Penticton Western News, McDonald’s, SOYSA, Penticton School of Dance, Potter’s House, Downtown Penticton Association and the invaluable help of Margie and Brian Wyatt and Judy Sentes. One hundred per cent of the proceeds from this event, $4,219, went to OSNS Child Development Centre.

Thank you to my amazing team Shelley Hunt, Ron and Linda DeMoss who volunteer countless hours to bring this event together. With people and organizations like this, we should all be very proud to call Penticton our home.
