UIW community Easter egg hunt a huge success

Jul 21st, 2011 | Category: Campus News

Enzo Pellegrino Jr. ’02 BBA, president of the Alumni Association, and his wife, Kristy ’01 BBA, brought their son, Enzo III, to UIW’s first Easter egg hunt.

More than 150 alumni and friends of the university joined the first UIW Community Easter Egg Hunt, which partnered with the Brainpower Connection schools. UIW Alumni Association board member Yvette Reyna ’03 BA, who chaired the event, aimed to create a fun, low-cost family outing to draw alumni back to campus.

Reyna said she is “eager to see the beautiful smiling faces of the children and their parents on the UIW campus for many years to come at this annual event.”
This year, the 2010 reigning Homecoming King Walter Wong and Queen Christine Clark led the children through the activities.

Children under 10 had the opportunity to hunt for Easter eggs as well as participate in activities such as face painting, coloring, making bunny ears and tossing a football. One child in each age category found a golden egg, which contained five family movie passes, courtesy of Frost Bank.
