Beyond Blindness Sensory easter egg hunt

Newport Beach, CA – February 27, 2024

Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort, in collaboration with Beyond Blindness and the OC Sheriff’s Department, is pleased to announce the return of the Beyond Blindness Beeper Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, March 23, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

For over 15 years, the Orange County-based nonprofit, dedicated to empowering children with visual impairments and other disabilities, has teamed up with Newport Dunes to host the special Easter egg hunt. This year, 250 students–ages one to 22– and their family members will gather at the Grand Gazebo and soft grassy lawn area for a sensory egg hunt, featuring beeping eggs donated by the OC Sheriff’s Department.

“The Beeper Egg Hunt is an annual favorite for our families and embodies everything that we strive for as an organization,” Beyond Blindness President and CEO, Angie Rowe expressed. “We want to thank Newport Dunes and the OC Sheriff’s Department for partnering with us for so many years to create this joyful and inclusive day for children with visual impairments and other disabilities. Together, we are creating a world where all children, no matter their abilities, can live full and rewarding lives.”

Seventy-five plastic beeping eggs, used as training devices for the OC Sheriff’s Department Hazardous Devices Section, will be carefully placed in a safe, grassy section of Newport Dunes’ tranquil waterfront property. These beeping Easter eggs provide an innovative solution to help visually impaired students take part in a favorite Easter tradition. Additionally, a traditional egg hunt will feature 2,500 filled plastic eggs prepared by corporate sponsor New World Medical. Among these eggs, 1,200 are tactile, featuring textured items such as rhinestones, ribbons or plastic googly eyes, to aid children with visual impairments in distinguishing them by touch. Local student service clubs like National Charity League and Key Club have assisted in preparing these eggs.

“The Beyond Blindness Beeper Easter Egg Hunt is a cherished tradition that brings joy to our community year after year,” stated Phil Ravenna, General Manager of Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort. “We’re honored to partner with Beyond Blindness and the OC Sheriff’s Department to host an unforgettable Easter celebration for these kids and their families.”

OC Sheriff’s Department will be onsite along with their OCSD Bomb Squad dogs to interact with the students, giving them a valuable sensory experience. Beyond Blindness staff as well as community and corporate volunteers will assist and give support to the children during the Easter egg hunt. Following the hunt, a beachfront picnic lunch for the children and their families, staff and volunteers will be catered by Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort, and the families will have the opportunity to visit and take photos with the Easter Bunny.
