Newport Dunes Hosts Annual Sensory Easter Egg Hunt for Blind Children’s Learning Center
Newport Beach, CA – Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort is pleased to welcome Blind Children’s Learning Center students back to the sandy shores for the annual sensory Easter egg hunt on Friday, April 19 from 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Having partnered with Newport Dunes to host the unique Easter egg hunt for more than 15 years, the Santa Ana-based non-profit and seventy of its students, ages one to eight years old, will kick off the holiday weekend with a sensory egg hunt featuring hundreds of special beeping eggs donated by OC Sheriff’s Department.
Used as training devices for the OC Sheriff’s Department Hazardous Devices Section, the plastic eggs will be carefully placed in a safe, grass section of Newport Dunes’ expansive waterfront property. The beeping Easter eggs provide an innovative solution to help visually impaired children take part in a favorite Easter tradition.
“This is an event that we look forward to every year, and we cherish the meaningful partnership that we have with Blind Children’s Learning Center,” says Brian Ross, Executive Director of Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort. “Having the opportunity to provide an unforgettable holiday celebration for these amazing kids and their families with the help of various members of our community is an experience we are truly grateful for.”
OC Sheriff’s Department will be on site along with their OCSD Bomb Squad dogs to interact with the students, giving them a valuable sensory experience. Blind Children’s Learning Center staff and parent volunteers will assist and give support to the children during the Easter egg hunt. Following the hunt, each student will be given an Easter basket filled with candy and toys. A beachfront picnic lunch for the children, staff and volunteers will be provided by Newport Dunes’ waterfront restaurant, Back Bay Bistro, and the kids will have the opportunity to visit and take photos with the Easter Bunny.
