(Gainesville, Ga.) Brenau University’s chapter of Phi Mu hosted their 9th annual Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, March 19 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event was planned by freshman Katherine Fuller and was held in the Brenau University Wallis Field. The event was open to the community, and children and adults could hunt eggs for prizes for an entry fee.
Nationally, Phi Mu supports Children’s Miracle Network hospitals as their philanthropy. The $2,014 dollars raised from the egg hunt will all go towards the Children’s Miracle Network.
The hunt divided age divisions that allowed smaller children to hunt first. Afterwards was a division for older children. Lastly was the division for adults to participate in the egg hunt.
At the event two current patients from Children’s Hospital of Atlanta came and spoke about their experiences and what the money that is donated goes toward. The two spoke about why the donations are so important.
“My favorite part was watching the kids hunt for eggs and seeing them play with the children from the hospital,” sophomore Olivia Davis stated.
The event had a great turnout, and was enough fun for an entire family to enjoy. The event is every year right before Easter, so make a plan to attend next year.
