NCS hosting ‘Bunny Bash’ to support Crusade for Children
The Easter Bunny will be a guest of Nelson County Schools on Saturday, March 18, during a community event to support the WHAS Crusade for Children.
The bash kicks off with a helicopter egg drop at 11 a.m. sharp on Old Kentucky Home Middle School’s football field. After the drop, children can visit activity booths featuring crafts and games. The event will include concession booths, a bake sale, silent auction and Easter Bunny photos for digital download.
“This community wide event will be a fun way to celebrate the Easter season while also giving back to a great cause,” said Madalyn Tucker, director of diverse learning for Nelson County Schools. “The Crusade has supported our schools and our diverse learners so much in the past, it really makes a difference in the quality of education our students receive.”
The egg drop is free to attend, but children should bring their own baskets. Guests can purchase six activity tickets for $5 and/or a digital photo download with the Easter Bunny. Tickets are cash purchase only. Local fire, ambulance and police will also be on hand for children to interact with. Thank you to Don Franklin Family of Dealerships for arranging the egg drop.
