For Immediate Release

Beeping Easter Egg Hunt for Children with Visual Impairments

OMAHA, NEB. – Boys Town National Research Hospital will host its annual Beeping Easter Egg Hunt for families with children who are visually impaired on Saturday, March 19, 2016 at 2:00 p.m. at the Hall of History on the Boys Town Campus, 14057 Flanagan Boulevard.

Children with visual impairments and their siblings are invited to bring a basket and search for Easter eggs that emit a beeping sound. Once discovered, eggs can be traded for assorted treats and prizes, including braille and large print books. Following the hunt, families will be treated to cookies, candy and fresh fruit. Additional activities include access to the Hall of History exhibits and photos with live animals including a lamb and a furry Easter bunny!

Register for the event by contacting Guadalupe Medina at 402-452-5017 or email Guadalupe.Medina@boystown.org by Tuesday, March 15. When registering, please include the names and ages of the children who will join in the fun, as well as if they read (and if so, if they use braille or large print).

This year’s Easter Egg Hunt is courtesy of Boys Town National Research Hospital, the Nebraska Foundation for Visually Impaired Children, Beta Sigma Phi Xi Eta Omaha Chapter and CenturyLink Pioneers.
