Free 'Egg-stravaganza' event to be held April 1 at UW-Eau Claire

March 30, 2012

EAU CLAIRE — "Egg-stravaganza" will take place at 1:30 p.m. April 1 on Towers Field on upper campus at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.

The event will include events such as a raffle, candy egg grab for kids, egg decorating, an egg relay race and an egg roll down the university hill.

The free candy grab will take place at 1:45 p.m. Optional donations will be accepted, with donations going to the event's host, the National Residence Hall Honorary. The organization is hosting the candy grab to bring kids to campus in an effort to help the university maintain and strengthen its relationships with youth in the community.

In recent years, UW-Eau Claire's NRHH chapter has extended its service outreach.

While this is the first year the student group has offered the "Egg-stravaganza" event, organizers hope it will become an annual event.

The raffle portion of the event will involve people paying $1 and then grabbing as many eggs as possible in five minutes. The person with the most tokens will win 50 percent of the cash prize, with the other half of the money going to The Community Table in Eau Claire. This raffle event will take place at 2:15 p.m.

The RECing crew also will host a booth during the event to share information. The student organization offers recreational activities to students living on campus that go beyond traditional intramural sports.

"Egg-stravaganza" is open to the public.

For more information, contact Melissa Harms, vice president of service for NRHH, at harmsma@uwec.edu or 920-918-3288.
