On the hunt for 15,000 Easter Eggs: STRiVE hosts annual fundraiser

By  | 

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT) -- There are baskets of fun to be had when you hide 15,000 Easter eggs, and invite nearly 600 pint-sized hunters, mostly, under the age of eight.

On Saturday, the Western Colorado Botanical Garden was hopping with children, families, and even an appearance from the Easter Bunny.

Every dollar from admission goes to support the non-profit STRiVE, which provides support for people with disabilities.

This event funds programs for children in particular.

“We’re having the best Easter egg hunt ever!” STRiVE vice president, Doug Sorter said, “It supports our children’s services which are instrumental in moving our kids forward that have some difficulties, and this is a great way to fund it because you have a lot of fun and then you put the money to those kids programs.”
